Gr 1-3-The girl with the photographic memory has planned a surprise 40th birthday party for her parents (whose birth dates are close together) at their own house. They arrive home after an outing and their guests barely have a chance to greet them when Mrs. Jansen's parents call to say that they have been robbed at the airport. Cam, her friend Eric, and her parents all go to help them. Granny and Gramps explain that a taxi driver stole their suitcases and two presents. The police are called to investigate, but Cam remembers seeing a van in the parking lot filled with luggage. Why would someone going on a trip leave luggage there, she wonders? She takes her father back to their car and they wait for the driver of the van, who returns with another load of suitcases. His game is up. This is an exciting mystery book with great black-and-white illustrations. Another surefire adventure.- Wendy S. Carroll, Montclair Cooperative School, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
