Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Through intricate plot development and fleshed-out characters, this mixed-genre selection grabs readers' attention from the outset and holds it until the end. Eli, Thea, and Clyne have tumbled through the Fifth Dimension from 2019 to 1804 and 1805 and become entwined in the Lewis and Clark expedition and the struggle to help slaves escape to freedom. Thea is originally from ancient Alexandria and Clyne is a dinosaurlike creature. They mistakenly arrive in this time period as they are on their way back to 2019 from their last adventure with Merlin. The members of the Corps of Discovery come to life and the story is rich with historical details. Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings are integral to the tale, and Williams combines fact with fiction to make them well-developed characters. The hardships and problems faced by the members of the Corps and the injustice of slavery are embedded in the story, which is told in alternating chapters by the three main characters. It is not necessary to have read earlier selections in the series. Gradually, readers become familiar with the idiosyncrasies of the tale's underpinnings as they learn the secret powers of a baseball cap and how myriad languages are understood. This cleverly plotted, engrossing read will appeal to maturing fans of Jon Scieszka's "The Time Warp Trio" series (Viking).-Renee Steinberg, formerly at Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ

About the Author

Mark London Williams lives in Los Angeles, where he writes articles, comics, plays, and Danger Boy books, and continues to draw inspiration from his two young sons and one old dog. In fact, when his oldest son was a toddler — long before he played his first video game — he ran down the hall one afternoon shouting, "I'm a Danger Boy!" and then quickly added something about dinosaurs. Mark London Williams has been thanking him for that inspiration ever since.

HASH(0xa30534e0) out of 5 stars An Enticing and Appetizing Read Jan. 7 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Recently coming from a dangerous time-traveling mission, Eli Sands and intergalactic friend Clyne the evolved dinosaur and an Alexandrian scholar Thea, are thrown into late nineteenth-century America after an "minor" mishap with their plasmachanichal time-travel vessel. Unfortunately, Clyne is separated from his friends in potentially hostile and unknown territory. While Thea and Eli on the other hand, pop up at the beginning of the famous Lewis and Clark expedition (pre-Sacagawea). After Thea is taken from Eli as she is mistook for an escaped slave and taken into the custody of president Jefferson (though he prefers to be called Tom). Eli then joins up with Captans Meriwether Lewis and Clark's "Corps of Discovery" whit the hope of finding his pal Clyne, that in turn will be a means to rescue Thea, and safe transportation home. However, while trying to escape the clutches of slave drivers and glory-hungry native warriors with hopes to regroup, the trio make an important discovery about their "unforeseen" stumble into 1804. It looks like they were attracted by a so called Prime Nexus, which they may have produced, which will surely change all of history to come.

HASH(0xa30537c8) out of 5 stars science fiction and history in one place May 10 2005
By austinmom2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the first book I have read in this series, but it is still enjoyable on its own. It is well written, flows well, and kids will learn a lot of history without it being overdone. It has enough gross factor to appeal to boys, but not so much to turn off parents or a female reader (one of the secondary characters, who tells part of the story, is a girl). It will encourage kids to pick up the next book in the series...
HASH(0xa305387c) out of 5 stars great series May 29 2013
By Ellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
On behalf of my 11-year old daughter I can report that she was hooked after having downloaded the first book in this series.
She has now finished #3 and tells me it is just as good as numbers 1 and 2. It is fast paced, a real page turner. The dialogues are genuine and even the time travel is believable :-)
