Cats don't really have nine lives, but they can visit nine different lives, anywhere, anytime. This is the secret Jason's cat, Gareth, tells him. When Jason hears this, he begs to go along. Soon cat and boy find themselves in ancient Egypt on the first of nine fantastic adventures. With the wink of an eye, Jason and Gareth are transported to alluring settings in world history. On their travels they meet interesting and famous people, such as St. Patrick, and Leonardo Da Vinci. Whether the destination is Renaissance Italy or revolutionary America, their appearance never fails to cause a stir. And wherever they go, Gareth leaves his inimitable pawprint on history.

Filled with fascinating historical information and enchanting cat lore, Time Cat showcases the author's wonderful talent for capturing the imagination as he immerses you in other cultures. Ron Keith's delightful narration conveys all the humor and excitement as you travel through time with Gareth and Jason.

    " This was an amazing book and will by my 1st favorite book because it had alot of things i love. It had time traveling and one of my favorite anaimals -cats (of course). It also got me thinking about my cat. She just seems to disapper and reapper out of nowhere. Maybe cats can travel o.O. But Lloyd created a great book and i will love it and show it to my kids in the future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 2/4/2014

    " Earnest, sweet kids book. I would have enjoyed it quite a lot around the age of 10, or perhaps a few years later what I first discovered LA's books. But I didn't read it then, because I, uh, didn't like cats at the time. The history felt a little hokey--of course they run into St Patrick and Leonardo and witch hunters--but I appreciated the feline appreciation. "
