Max is minding his own business one day when an urgent call comes through from Ivor Gadget. Max has to pet-sit his dormouse, Dixie, for 3 days while Ivor collects a spare part for a new invention. Ivor is hardly out the door when Dixie escapes her cage - little does Max know that a chase beginning in the living room will end up 2000 years away.
