Follow the adventures of Spike and Mia as they travel back in time to stop Spikes uncle, Dr Darius Dire, from stealing artefacts from historical figures in Tommy Donbavand’s new series, Time Trek.

Spike and Mia are frequently joined by Igor, Dr Dire’s cat, as they embark on fun filled journeys through time, bumping into historical figures including Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Vincent Van Gogh and even the Bard himself, William Shakespeare.
