Second in the 'Time-Travelling Cat' trilogy.
An exciting and adventurous time-slip novel that also features Sir Francis Drake and the Golden HInd and - in the present time - issues of vegetarianism and animal rights.
When Topher and his cat Ka escape from Ancient Egypt, Topher begs Ka not to go time travelling again. But Ka disappears again leaving only the word "Richemont" on Topher's computer screen. Escaping problems in his own contemporary world, Topher tracks Ka down to Tudor times and finds himself in the household of Dr Dee - scientist, geographer, inventor and astrologer . . . and trusted adviser of Queen Elizabeth.
Issues of bullying, vegetarianism and animal rights feature in the contemporary section of the novel, which blend effortlessly into the exciting times in Elizabethan England for the time-slip part.
