What happened to the dimes? Can Cam solve that question? At the beginning Cam and Eric were recycling cans and bottles. They collected coins for the things they recycled and then put the money in a box. Then the dimes were missing! Who might have stolen the dimes?

I thought the pictures were cool because the illustrator drew Cam and Eric realistically. She added details in her drawing. I think her details were excellent because she described the characters and setting. I thought that her expression was good because she used exclamation marks. Also, there was a lot of dialogue between the characters.

You should read this book about Cam and Eric solving mysteries. If you enjoy mysteries , you will enjoy reading how Cam captures the crooks or does she? This book is for you!
