Cam Jansen and the Chocolate Fudge Mystery by David A. Alder

David A. Alder is the author of the Cam Jansen series of books.  Cam is a nickname for Jennifer Jansen, she has a photographic memory.  Cam is short for "the camera" which was her original nickname.  Cam uses her gift to solve a number of mysteries.

In the book Cam Jansen and the Chocolate Fudge Mystery Cam and her friend Eric are selling chocolate fudge bars and rice cakes to raise money for the city's Ride and Read program.  This is a program that takes homebound elderly to the library.  Something seems a bit strange to Cam at one of the houses when she sees a lady wearing a raincoat and sunglasses leaving with a trash bag and placing the trash bag into the trashcan of a different house.  Cam wants to know what is in the trash bag so she digs it out and sees a variety of food containers.  Cam and Eric notice newspapers in front of the house that are the exact same, why have more than one copy of a newspaper in your driveway??  Cam takes Eric to the back of the house and there they see a box of groceries, the same food items that were just thrown into the trash, something is not right!

Play a game with your family, have a person look around the room then have them close their eyes and see how much they can remember about the room.  Go to different places in the house and have a different person close their eyes and see who can remember the most.  Also, enjoy some chocolate fudge!

Happy Daily Reading
