Well, Ziggy, Rico, Rashawn, and Jerome don't exactly go back in time, but they do discover an old tunnel that was one of the safe havens used by escaped slaves. And it all started with the map.
Ziggy thought it'd be cool to see where the old map would lead. Especially since it showed a hidden trapdoor and a secret passageway right under their own school! Ziggy and his friends would just check it ot. They wouldn' t even have to tell anyone. No problem. Right?
Wrong. Because they realize they're in big trouble when the trapdoor gets stuck and they're forced to use the old, dark, damp tunnels just like the escaped slaves did before them. And what about the legend of the River City Ghost - are the tunnels haunted?
The Black Dinosaurs have to think of something soon or they may be trapped in the past forever.

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.
