I love the overall topic of this book....Think Green! Great shorter chapter book that includes illustrations through out book. Also a great concept for students to learn from! Recycle to earn money.

Much like its predecessors, the solution to the puzzle in Cam Jansen and the Green School Mystery is brought to light through Cam's photographic memory. For my own part, I knew the identity of the thief on page five, but then, the books in the Cam Jansen series often follow a particular pattern, and I knew to be on the lookout. Although I didn't find it particularly suspenseful, I would imagine many in the target audience will, and will enjoy following Cam and Eric as they get to the bottom of the mystery. Recommended to fans of the Cam Jansen books, and to beginning chapter-book readers who enjoy mystery stories.
