‘The Time-Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess’ is about the adventures of boy called Topher and his mysterious cat called Ka.
Topher and his dad are both struggling to deal with the death of his mum. Topher misses his mum a lot who was an Egyptologist and has a fragile relationship with dad but they are muddling along until one day a stray cat turns up and they take it in.

I remember reading this book such a long time ago! In fact, I remember I liked the front cover and I tried to draw it in my notebook on the beach :) Wow, it would be so great to read this again, because I remember liking it at the time. And I mean, I'm not surprised I picked it up really! Time travelling and cats , what more could you want?

Topher and his father are dealing with the loss of Topher's mother and not doing it very well. In the process they end up hurting each other and are only brought back together with the help of Ellie, a young girl who is deaf and has surgery that helps her to hear again and a cat named Ka. But there are things that happen with the cat and decisions that they make.

This book is now entitled 'The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess'. I read this as I am teaching an Ancient Egyptians topic next term and wanted to see if this would be a suitable class text to use alongside the topic. It was an ok read and there are some useful Egyptian facts to share.
