The Time of Your Life - Tanya Batt / Bruce Potter
About the book:
Little Ben has only two wishes: 1) that he be a little taller and 2) that there be a little more time. People are always running out of time, are short of time, or don't have time to spare. Then his godmother gives him a watch... now he has all the time in the world. Or so he thinks.
