In this reissue of a classic chapter book series by award-winning author Sharon M. Draper, four boys who call themselves the Black Dinosaurs, find themselves involved in exciting mysteries around their town.
In Lost in the Tunnel of Time, the boys discover their hometown was a stop on the Underground Railroad and are excited to explore the part of the tunnel that is right under their school. When a trapdoor slams behind them, locking them in the tunnel, there’s only one thing they can do—plunge deeper and deeper into the darkness. Where will the tunnel lead them? And will the old, crumbling walls hold until they find their way to the end?

This book is great. I could read thid for days
I am reading this book now an i'm pretty bored. I haven't gotten far enough into it to decide if it's a good book or not, and I am definitely NOT the kind of person to judge a book by it's cover but i'm not sucked into the swirl of the story like I usually am with books. I reccomend this book for any boy 8 and older. I definitely do not reccomend this book to girls unless they like stories about boys. I have nothing against this book, and I think it's a great inspiration for any boy who likes a good mystery and an exciting adventure. I just don't think girls will be as interested in the story as boys will. From a girl's point of view.
I read this series with my grands and have to say I loved them. Each story handles an adventure/lesson with a group of boys who start a club and call themselves the Black Dinosaurs (after a toy). The boys are adorable characters. Ziggy was my favorite and my grandson's because he ate what the others thought was weird stuff. I like them for girls or boys because you learn something in each book. But I think the boys like them even more because of the cast of characters, a bunch of regular kids who stick together to solve a mystery or resolve a problem. I highly recommend them for grade school kids.
