The really old Strange Hill building is dominated by its really old clocktower, which rises high above the school. As it chimes the beginning of another school day, Mitchell rushes toward school. It's the first day of Exams Week and he's late. He sees the clock and has an idea. If he sets it back 10 minutes, nobody can claim he's late. So he climbs up and pushes the minute hand back 10 minutes.

When he enters the school, he finds he's arrived at class 10 minutes early! He's actually turned back time! Mitchell and his friends soon go mucking about with time, setting it forward and backward according to their whims. But their messing so much with time causes the ancient clock to break and time begins to come apart at its seams.
