Bernard's Great Aunt gives him a watch that can stop time. You press the button at the top and everything stops - except you. It's a neat trick if you want to finish your homework in a hurry or skip school and take a stroll into town, but it does more than that. Much, much more!
This is probably my favourite of all the books I've written. It was loosely based on the television series I'd written and the more I thought about it, the more fun things there seemed to be that you could do with frozen time. It also gave me a chance to say what I thought happens when time stops for all of us.
