A young girl is given a magical device by a Clockface that she discovers can delete or insert amounts of time into her year which allows her to extend the weeks, days or months and to shorten them. The device is particularly helpful to Latisha when her homework is due but less so when she accidentally deletes her birthday and then tries to restore it by adding another day to her year which no one is bothered about which frustrates her no end. The Guardians of Time however, aren't very pleased when in a moment of anger, Latisha opposes the advice and guidance of Clockface, her Time Guide and companion who appears whenever the device is active and she suddenly deletes one of the most important days in the calendar for all those around her and so, they summon her to the dimension of time to rebuke her.
Once Latisha has been rebuked by the Guardians of Time, she then tries to redeem herself by accepting their terms of forgiveness which mean that she must become a Time Monitor for humanity with Clockface by her side as her companion and Time Guide. Together, the two start to visit different places and time periods to perform Time Missions as Clockface encourages Latisha to step into her role of amending time to assist, help and at times, to save humanity which even assists Latisha with some of her school lessons and homework as she learns more about history, science and geography (amongst a bundle of other things) throughout their Time Mission adventures. However, as Latisha rapidly discovers, it's not always easy being a time hero when you still have school lessons, homework, household chores to perform, your time teleporter keeps going on the blink and the Bunglers keep showing up to cause mischief, chaos and mayhem.

Deep in the heart of a land far, far away,
There was a young princess that didn't like today or yesterday,
She wanted only to wait for tomorrow to come
Because she always felt that tomorrow would be much more fun.
Time was sometimes her friend and at times her foe,
Because timeliness required cooperation which wasn't always her goal.

Forgot about it, you have to got be kidding me that noise could wake the dead. School doesn't do late Latisha and neither does the day, if you don't get up, it starts without you and so does school. Latisha's mother explained. ~ Jill Thrussell
"I know Mum. I'm getting up right now, you see I'm putting my feet on the floor. (puts feet on the ground) Movement that's a positive sign of compliance with parental instructions." Latisha replied. ~ Jill Thrussell
"What happens to each minute Mrs. Worthington, once they pass by, do they die or something?" Christopher asked. ~ Jill Thrussell
"There is no scientific explanation to answer that question Christopher but that is a very good question, you'd have to ask Father Time, if you believe that he exists. Each minute that passes by however, does become part of humanity's lived out history and some minutes, you may read about in history books or learn about from your own family history. So in some respects I would say, some minutes live for decades or centuries, even after they've departed." Mrs. Worthington explained. ~ Jill Thrussell
"Always remember Latisha, time is one of the most precious gifts that you can ever give to anyone." Clockface advised. ~ Jill Thrussell
