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

Re in ancient Egypt on the first of nine amazing adventures that Jason will never forg All cats can talk if they want but most cats don t wish to do so Gareth however is uniue he talks to Jason his boy companion cats don t have owners and takes Jason with him on nine adventures one for each of his nine lives They start in ancient Egypt and travel forward through history in leaps and bounds experiencing some of history s most pivotal ages and meeting some of its most colorful characters It s a delightful romp through history and my daughter and I found occasion to pause many times and discuss historical eras and events But if she were reading it on her own I m sure she would have missed many of the historical references St Patrick and the snakes for example And I m not sure the description was sufficiently indelible that she d be able to recall it when she finally does learn about St Patrick in school or elsewhere Granted my daughter s only eight but I think even twelve or thirteen year olds for whom the book is really written would miss a lot of the references I m sure my sister and I both did when we read it years agoThe story is no less enjoyable for that but I do think Alexander could have fully explained the context of some of the periods into which Gareth and Jason travel Nevertheless it s a fun read with some pretty impressive characters and funny moments Overall a cute book for younger readers with something in it for the grown ups too and with some great teaching moments

    This was what I would consider a bunch of short stories and while they were entertaining I'm super disappointed because it would have been so easy to connect them It seems almost offensively lazy on the authors behalf lol

    I loved this book Lloyd Alexander certainly knows a lot about history and cats He captures the uirky behavior and manerisms of cats perfectly and really makes me want to go home and spend some good uality time with my own cats In Time Cat the reader follows a boy and his cat as they travel through time to experience many monumental moments in history The book devotes two or three chapters to each time period just enough to get the point

    '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 de

    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 Howe
