'The clock stands at the foot of the stairs and can be heard throughout the house. Constance is half-afraid of it, for it seems to be saying things she can almost understand. - "Tick tock...come here, Connie..." - Then one day, curious, she enters the tall clock case and finds herself in Time's magical world. So she is transported to an alien world where she has to solves riddles and puzzles to return home.'
