The Stupendous Timetelling Superdog

by Himanjali Sankar
illustrated by Pooja Pottenkulam

What's it all about?

Rousseau is a silly, happy dog who has one special power: he can tell the time.
When the Orange Marmaladies from the Black Hole of Time stop all timetelling devices, the world is thrown into a tizzy. Clocks, computers, and even traffic lights stop working. Only Rousseau can tell the time, with barks and thumps of his tail.
Can Rousseau save Earth from this disaster? Or will the world be timeless forever?
