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.

Julia Jarman is the author of more than 80 children's books, including Big Red Tub, Ghost Writer, Kangaroo's Cancan Cafe, Peace Weavers, and the Time-Travelling Cat series.From AudioFile:
As the title suggests, there's a lot going on here, not just in Topher Hope's ordinary life (he and his father struggle to cope with the loss of Topher's mother), but also in Topher's extraordinary adventures following after his mysterious cat, Ka. Fortunately, David Collins, who has a distinguished British voice, is quite capable of narrating the twists of this involved story with its multiple settings and characters. Whether telling the story of modern-day England or long-ago Egypt, he gamely vocalizes a cat, a bird, and the voice of Topher's deaf friend, Ellie, managing to pull off each while maintaining the story's growing drama.
