Time cat is about a boy named Jason and his cat Gareth. One day, Jason is sent to his room for punching his little brother. Frustrated and angry, he says “I wish I had nine lives.” And to his surprise, Gareth says “I do too.”
This is the start of nine magical adventures for Jason and Gareth that take them from Ancient Egypt to America just before the Revolution.
What I liked best about this book is that it’s very suspenseful. I couldn’t put it down! I really cared about these characters because the writing made me feel like I was in the book traveling through time with them. At times, the descriptions were so clear I felt like I could reach out and touch Gareth’s glossy black fur!
You should read this book if you like magic, cats and time travel.
