Book 5 in the Kiwi Series. Furry fun for ages 9-99.
Have you ever wished your cat could talk or wondered where he/she goes when you're not around?
Inspired by the film 'Back to the Future', Whiskers invents The Time-Squeaking Mouse. He plans to take his friends on a fantastic trip to celebrate Amy's thirteenth birthday. However, the time machine falls into the wrong hands and dastardly Dev travels back to Ancient Egypt when cats were sacred. With Dev having changed the path of history, it's up to Kiwi and the gang to travel back in time to find him. What will Kiwi, Amy, James, Whiskers, Hammy, Misty, Furrball and Siam think of this desert world of tombs, pyramids and sacred gods?

"This was a very fun and entertaining story. While it is helpful to already be familiar with the Kiwi series, it is by no means a requirement since Kiwi in the Realm of Ra more than stands on its own. With lots of facts about the Egyptian empire and several new and very entertaining characters cleverly woven into the plot, Vickie Johnstone creates a story that is both educational and engaging. Sometimes the Egyptian trivia is a little close for easy reading, but it gets clearer in subsequent tellings. The settings are varied and it is apparent that the Egyptian culture is something of a passion for the author. Curiosity, danger and fun collide in a fast paced tale that takes the cats and their friends back in time, all the way to the realm of the underworld and back in Kiwi in the Realm of Ra."
