Time Cat

Our rating: ***

Jason’s cat Gareth can talk, and he tells Jason a big secret: Cats don’t have nine lives, but they can travel to nine different places in history at any time they wish. Then Jason asks to be taken along, and he and Gareth are suddenly standing in Ancient Egypt, where cats are worshipped. This is just the first of nine cat-centered adventures through time!

I was a little disappointed that the story never stopped very long in any country, but Lloyd Alexander makes up for this with a lot of action. This was Alexander’s first book, and you can kind of tell. Some of the others are better, but Time Cat is a good read for cat lovers and anyone who loves adventure. By the way, see if you can find the character of a certain red-gold haired princess from Prydain!
