Sharon Draper can write it all-funny, heartbreaking, gritty, and with Lost in the Tunnel of Time, mysterious. This series is an easy, uncomplicated read for 2nd to 5th graders who want a more relaxed plot. The kids in this book are easy to relate to and typical of most kids their age. And while the storyline is not complicated, readers will still be kept guessing until the end.

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. It starts off very promising: "Like cool, sweet milk on a bowl of crunchy cereal, the Thursday morning breeze splashed the crisp, dry leaves under Rico's feet." However, this is where Maya An ...more

This is the only book that I have read from the collection by Sharon M. Draper. I thought this book was a great adventure for a student to read that held a great amount of information as well. This book would be tough for a child to put down because it uses suspense on guessing what happens next. The use of the Underground Railroad was very well explained in the story and could be a fun way to get kids to understand what it was. Preparation and problem solving were also great skills that were in ...more

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.

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.

This is a good book for kids who like easy mystery series. The boys use a secret map to find tunnels from the Underground Railroad. The tunnels are located underneath their school and the boys have an adventure locating them.

I liked it. They try and find where these slaves went on the underground railroad. They find that it's right under their school - the hiding place. Then they get stuck in it and they have to make their way out.

It's very nice these kids go back in time to learn about black history
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.

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
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
