Kip-Kip, a cosmic traveller, on an adventure to find a solution to his problem.
They land up on a growing planet called Earth, where Tik-Tik tries to find a
way to speed up time. But will his experiments succeed? And will he ever be
able to outwit the villain Dum-Dum and her accomplices: the bottom-heavy
Michelle Farooqi’s charming illustrations bring to life this hilarious adventure
packed with animals, insects, birds, aliens, inventions and discoveries. Tik-
Tik, the Master of Time will have you laughing all the way to the heartwarming
