Attending the local community hobby show, Cam Jansen and her best friend Eric Shelton are there when a valuable baseball, signed by Babe Ruth himself, goes missing. Cam immediately suspects that the boy in the bright green jacket that she sees leaving the community hall has taken the baseball, and she and Eric pursue him. But when they catch him in the park, he reveals that he is carrying a different baseball. Has Cam made a mistake, or is something else afoot...?

Originally published in 1982, Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Babe Ruth Baseball was the sixth entry in author David A. Adler's beginning chapter-book series about this fifth-grade sleuth and her photographic memory. I recall reading many of these books when I was a young girl, and I am currently revisiting them as part of a project to familiarize myself with series intended for readers ages six through eight. Recommended to fans of Cam Jansen, and to anyone looking for mysteries for young readers who are just getting going with chapter-books. ( )

This is one of the first books I connected with. I often thought I had photographic memory, Just like Cam, and would 'click' photo's of images into my photo album(memory). ( )
