Happy hours often fly by in a blink of an eye. This is all a trap set up by the “Time Thief”. Emily is rollicking in the amusement park whilst hearing the tick-tock, tick-tock, not knowing where it comes from. It is the sound of Time Thief stealing the fun hours.


Whether it is a birthday party or a nice outing, the Time Thief is always secretly stealing the time. How very troublesome!


Fortunately, Dr. Stop’s invention finally catches the Time Thief. Everyone is relieved and happy. The pleasant moment will now last forever. Knowing about this, Time Thief is struck by sadness, anger and wrath. Hmm. What is going to happen next?

When you enjoy reading this book, your joyful time is sneakily stolen as well!
