Synopsis: Visiting the La Brea Tar Pit with his class, young Darwin learns about all the animals who, over the years, have gotten stuck in the tar pit and died.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-5-- Unlike most children's fantasies, Darwin's daydreams come true when his class visits the La Brea Tar Pit. Somehow, he is transported back in time, where he meets up with creatures who died in the sticky tar. He befriends a mammoth, outwits a sabertoothed tiger, defeats an angry Tyrannosaurus Rex, and is himself transformed into a kind of cave boy. He's surprised to encounter his classmate Amy, who's also flashed back to prehistoric times. Together, they hitch a ride on a pterodactyl and make friends with a chatty sea monster. The cartoon drawings that open each chapter and the lighthearted combination of fact and fiction create the kind of comedy that makes children giggle (and adults groan.) In an author's note, Platt explains scientific inaccuracies. The alternating time frames are puzzling--every other chapter sends the children back in time, with no explanation of why or how they got there. Readers will figure out the pattern by the end, but they might be confused by the opening chapters. Average fare for fantasy and dinosaur buffs. --Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
