       Additional Information  
      Cole Stubbins and his little brother, Ricky, have the perfect life. They had friends, hockey, a caring mother, and a brilliant paleontologist professor for a father who let his boys help construct 'real live' dinosaur skeletons in their very own dining room! One evening, Cole and Ricky were home alone, waiting for the professor to bring home something for dinner. They decide to surprise him by piecing together as many bones as they could from a newly discovered type of Albertasaurus. Unbeknown to them, one of the bones held a deadly secret, kept hidden for millions of years. When young Ricky accidentally cracks open this bone he cuts his hand and absorbs some prehistoric radioactive fluid into his blood stream. He begins to gradually change, gaining some very unusual, superhuman skills only a young dinosaur could have, as well as an illness that starts him on a deadly countdown for his life! There is only one way to save young Ricky. In a race against time, Cole must help the professor finish his 'Rediscover Time' machine by finding a flawless diamond worth over one hundred million dollars. Then he must travel back to the age of the dinosaur to get the cure for Ricky's disease! But miracles happen and the machine is completed but there are technical problems and Cole is the only one small enough and intelligent enough to make the journey! While back in time everything goes horribly wrong and Cole accidentally brings back a dinosaur named 'Albert' to modern day Drumheller, along with the cure for Ricky's illness. The trouble is, the cure is inside the belly of Albert. Chaos breaks loose in the tiny town of Drumheller in this first of many adventures in the lives of the Stubbins family as they 'Rediscover Time!'
