Story Summary

Excerpted from Lloyd Alexander's Time Cat, this is a nice tale about Gareth, young Jason's cat, who explains to Jason that he does not have nine lives but can travel to nine different places, anywhere, anytime. This trip takes them to Japan in the year 998 AD where they encounter a child emperor who finally learns to stand up to his uncle, the Regent.
