Re in ancient Egypt on the first of nine amazing adventures that Jason will never forg. Time Cat is the story of Jason a typical boy and Gareth his magic cat using Gareth s powers to travel through timeNow I love almost everything Lloyd Alexander has written but this book was mostly a disappointment First and foremost I had no idea what the book was trying to do It sure didn t feel like it was trying to teach any history Gareth and Jason travel to several different points in time but the only description of the time is surface level details we could have gotten from the blurb in a children s encyclopedia What was the point of this book What was it trying to say and who was it for Most of the visits to another time end with Jason giving somebody a lesson about cats and then he and Gareth take off If the object of this book was to teach kids about cats than why bother with the time travel And why repeat the same don t try to change cats they are what they are lesson five timesThe book also suffered from lame stakes Jason and Gareth never seemed to be in any real danger They were captured four or five times ultimately it felt like Alexander couldn t think of another way to put any risk into the story And what was the risk We never found out if there are special reuisites for Gareth to be able to travel through time so why didn t they just time travel away all those times they got captured Compared to Alexander s other books there is very little emotion or character development I don t hate Time Cat but recommend you not bother with it The 7 Components of Transformative Organizing Theory repeat the same don t try to change cats they are what they are lesson five timesThe book also suffered from lame stakes Jason and Gareth never seemed to be in any The Big Golden Book of Poetry real danger They were captured four or five times ultimately it felt like Alexander couldn t think of another way to put any Wild Man Creek (Virgin River, risk We never found out if there are special Homewrecker recommend you not bother with it

review Time CatThe Remarkable Journeys of Jason and Gareth

Power to travel through time And the instant he tells this to Jason the two of them a. DNF at 54 pages This wasn t for me There was very little world building to this episodic book I wanted to know why the cat took his boy to these different times but it seemed random like the author just thought they were cool and different places to explore The episodes were also bland The boy and cat are kidnapped and then have to teach the man who is holding them captive about cat behavior He then has a positive relationship with cats and becomes a better person The the boy and cat peace out and move on to the next random time and place At best this would be 3 stars but I don t want to spend the time finishing it

    Frankly this story made me feel as though it had been written by a child The plot was so thin I could've cut through it with a butter knife To be honest I couldn't even finish the whole book Jason a young boy around the age of nine discovers that his cat can speak and time travel through simple conversation; he seems completely unfazed by this new development To be honest our two time travellers seem like an adorable couple However this av
