Too Easy

This book was just OK

This book was Ok but I felt like it was way too easy. I read it in a night, and it just seemed like a book a second grader would read.

Pretty Boring

This book is not very good. I read the first story and was appalled. It was not what I expected. It was dull. I would not read this book if I were you.

I read a few Cam Jenson books, and they were great! I was so surprised, and excited, to see that the author was also the one who wrote the series.

This book made me think more about friendship.

I wish the jelly beans on the cover were able to be turned real so I can eat them. I also liked that there were 3 stories inside. Overall I loved it because it's jelly beans! I mean am I right? The book is about two 4th grade kids who play baseball, win a pizza party, and have the principal spying on them!

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to do every tradition with the word jelly in it plus the ice cream part.
But my mom won't let me have jelly beans that often or take them to school. Only special times I get jelly beans. This book inspired me to think about greedy people.

When his first child was born, David A. Adler took a year off from his job as a math teacher, looked after the baby, and wrote Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds. He has now written almost 200 books! David’s advice to aspiring writers is not to try to get the story perfect right away. “Leave that for the second and third drafts. My best stories have been rewritten scores of times.”
