Sugar Time: Her name is Sugar. Sugar Sweet. When her Uncle Max falls ill and his collaborators disappear, he asks her to investigate the old Victorian mansion where he conducted his research. Now Sugar must act quickly to unlock the secret of time travel so she can protect her uncle’s research. Uh, aren’t those cats awfully big? What are they doing in the house? How dangerous are they? And then Sugar has to use her uncle’s time machine to dispose of bodies. (How could she explain them?!) And then Sugar packs the time machine with food, water, weapons, her new companions–and other necessities. Way back when, the sabre tooth tigers are merely curious as they sniff around, but the Neanderthals want in. Must move faster. And what if collecting souvenirs affects time?
