Overview
Where does the time go? That’s not just an old saying, it’s a real problem for Mr. Clutterbuck, a learned and, as it happens, oversized snail. From an old friend, he gets word that “the time is out of joint.” A terrible storm threatens the world and time is running out. No, really, time is actually disappearing and Mr. Clutterbuck’s old friend enlists him to “fix it.” Joining forces with a very unlikely “expert,” Mr. Clutterbuck and his trusty companion, a lemur named Poona, do battle with the evil Chester Drawers, chairman, CEO, COO – aw heck, he is Monotony Inc. Can they derail Drawers’ dastardly schemes before it’s too late?
Description
Where does the time go? That’s not just an old saying, it’s a real problem for Mr. Clutterbuck, a learned and, as it happens, oversized snail. From an old friend, he gets word that “the time is out of joint.” A terrible storm threatens the world and time is running out. No, really, time is actually disappearing and Mr. Clutterbuck’s old friend enlists him to “fix it.” Joining forces with a very unlikely “expert,” Mr. Clutterbuck and his trusty companion, a lemur named Poona, do battle with the evil Chester Drawers, chairman, CEO, COO – aw heck, he is Monotony Inc. Can they derail Drawers’ dastardly schemes before it’s too late? “Mr. Clutterbuck and a Matter of Time” is for readers ages 8 and up. It’s what you might call a funny story about a very serious subject – i.e., environmental degradation and its consequences such as climate change. Think about it this way, by plundering our world’s resources, aren’t we in effect, “time rustlers” – stealing time from every living creature on this planet, including ourselves?
