The first of the time-travelling cat trilogy where Topher and his cat Ka travel back in time to Ancient Egypt where cats are sacrificed to the gods. Originally published as The Time-Travelling Cat.Topher's cat, Ka, is not always who she seems to be. Sometimes she disappears for days and all that Ka has left by his bedside is a little stone carving of a cat. One days Ka leaves a clue on Topher's computer. She types Bubastis and soon Topher finds himself time-travelling to Ancient Egypt where Ka is in terrible danger.Julia Jarman's characters are acutely observed from real life - she manages to introduce contemporary issues such as single-parent families and disability and blends them with historical fact and fantasy in this fast-paced novel. With Ancient Egypt high on the agenda in National Curriculum History, this book is already much in demand with children, teachers and librarians.
