Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1963

Nine-year-old Jason and his cat, Gareth, travel back in time to Gareth's nine different lives and, in the process, influence the course of important historical events--especially as they relate to cats! Narrator Ron Keith captures each character's personality while delivering a superbly whimsical reading. The cat's speech has a suitably aloof, finicky tone. Simpering servants, maniacal magistrates and terrifying tyrants are all just as convincing. Each side of the cassettes begins with an arrival and ends with a departure from a particular time and place. This makes for a conveniently educational, as well as a delightfully entertaining, story.
