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.

The Time Travelling Cat and the Egytian Goddess is the first in the series about Ka, the time-travelling cat. When it was first published, it was called The Time Travelling Cat. I didn't know then, that I was going to write a whole series of books. But when I did publishers changed the title to The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess. So, if you want to know what some of its first readers thought about it look at the reviews they've written for The Time Travelling Cat. One of them, written on 30 September 2000 says 'An excelant book. I couldn't put it down. My fav.part(s)were when Topher wakes up in the middle of the night and the sardonyx statue of a cat is glowing.
