about this item

The Branton Town Hall Clock, a Wonder of the World, grinds to a halt after working for nearly a century, and the only one who can fix it is the eccentric and elderly grandson of the clock's original maker. He finds the clock inhabited by intelligent and telepathic mice who are integral to making the clock run. They become his friends, but in a moment of weakness, the old man betrays them; a ruthless scientist captures them for study, and the old man must rescue them. This book was originally written as a series of essays on time, clocks, mice, bells, people, cats, and science with illustrations by Emma Chichester-Clark.
