Reviews for Time Cat : The Remarkable Journeys of Jason and Gareth
Horn Book Guide Reviews 2003 Fall
JasonÆs cat doesnÆt have nine lives but does have the ability to visit nine different lives through time travel. Together, the boy and cat visit a pharaoh in ancient Egypt, are imprisoned for witchcraft in seventeenth-century Germany, and help a peddler in colonial America. This episodic fantasy, AlexanderÆs first book for children (published in 1963), provides early evidence of his impressive talents. This edition includes a new author's note.

Beloved novels return for a new generation of readers. Lloyd Alexander's first fantasy, Time Cat: The Remarkable Journeys of Jason and Gareth was published in 1963, before he went on to write the Newbery Honor book The Black Cauldron (1965) and The High King, winner of the 1969 Newbery Medal. Here, Gareth, a magical cat, and his human friend Jason travel to the past, visiting nine different eras all over the world, including ancient Egypt. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
