Cam Jansen is one of my favorite characters in childrenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s literature for many reasons. First, sheÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s a girl and can serve as a gutsy, creative, and intelligent role model for young female readers. She has a photographic memory, a character trait that makes her a dynamite detective. Last, but not least, sheÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s successful at solving problems in an adult world, an accomplishment many of her readers would like to emulate. For these reasons, and many more, Cam Jansen is an inspiring hero who stars in a series of kid-friendly mysteries written by David A. Adler. A complete answer key is included in the download.
