Sharon M. Draper is best known for her gritty young adult "urban" titles like Tears of a Tiger, Romiette and Julio, and The Battle of Jericho. While these may be a bit uncomfortable for younger or less mature readers, she has also written novels like Double Dutch with less pain but a still strong connection to urban teen reality . Her Clubhouse Mysteries are for younger readers still, and they are delightful.

This book follows the mis-adventures of some overly-curious boys, probably middle school
This children's mystery novel is such an awful stampede of African American cliches that it's almost impossible to take it seriously. It's got a good "premise": best friends band together, form The Black Dinosaurs, solve "mysteries" (where's my sock? Oh, here it is. The end) and have a milk shake afterward.

Great to have an interesting series with African American characters. This book, good for 3rd through 5th graders, was an easy read and kept my interest. The ending was pretty easy to figure out but still a good read. Students would definitely enjoy it. The historical backdrop definitely helps make this one that I, as a teacher, could easily see as a Read-Aloud.
naik 1 bintang dari buku sebelumnya karena suka dengan cara penulisnya memasukan sejarah perbudakan kulit hitam di Amerika Serikat.

masih kurang greget petualangannya sih, tetep wkwkwk
Certainly not big on character development, and the plot was somewhat flat as well, but decent suggestion for kids who love easy series mysteries (Cam Jansen, A-Z, etc.).
Mystery and historical fiction for 8-12. A great start to adding more to these categories for this age group.
My rating of four stars for this is primarily in comparison to the other books I've read at this reading level. As a beginning level chapter book it's a winner.

its about Ziggy and his friends find a underground railroad by following a map so when there in there Ziggy pulls a rope and the trapdoor shuts so they almost find there way out but Afrika Rashawn's dog finds them and leads them out.

Great introduction to Underground Railroad concept. Follows the Black Dinosaurs club as they go on an adventure, finding the ties their own town has to the Underground Railroad
