Item Description...
Imagine living in a nation where killing a sacred cat is a capital offense. Thutmose IIIs Egypt, in Moses day, was such a region. The priest Ameres and his family live in this land. Life is turned upside down when the son, Chebron, accidentally kills the sacred cat of Bubastes. This incident leads to secrecy, grief, and flight as one harrowing adventure follows another. Their best hope of a safe haven for youthful Chebron and his sister is the land of the Rebu, itself a conquered nation under Egyptian rule. To reach that distant land, they must flee through closely guarded Egyptian exits. Then they must embark on a challenging journey through unfamiliar lands populated by unfamiliar people and conquer numerous geographical hindrances. G. A. Henty has produced a story which will give young readers an unsurpassed insight into the customs of one of the greatest of ancient peoples in the classic The Cat of Bubastes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
got for my son who is 14  Jul 12, 2007
My son thought this was a good book, but a little hard to follow, because it uses older terms. Otherwise, he said it was a great book. He enjoyed the Light of Eidon more.
Good, a little boring  May 1, 2007
I don't know about you, but I have to read a book with lots of excitment to keep me reading. After reading the first three chapters, this book lay forgotten on my desk, getting covered with dust and cobwebs. My mom found it (I am an eleven year old girl who is homeschooled) and told me I had to read it. I picked up the boring book and stuck my whole face into the book. I read and read and read. I almost fell asleep a few times. Then, the light turned on for me. About half way through the book the excitment happened. I could put the book down until it was over.

So, I think this book is worth four stars and four stars only. If it doesn't have a booming introduction, I'm not reading it. (or at least not until my mom says)

Some good books, however are the following. I had to read them for school. They are historical fiction.

Bonze Bow
Hittite Warrior
Golden Goblet
...just a few of some really good books. The Bronze Bow is the best book I've read in my life.

Over all, I think that The Cat of Bubastes has its share of boring parts in it. I would much rather read Harry Potter books than this, let's put it that way. But, it has its share of excitment in it too. I would read it again if I had to.
Great read!  Mar 19, 2007
Great addition to our study of Egypt. And it's a Henty of course!
Old-Fashioned, Rip-Roarin' Fun!  Oct 30, 2005
This was the first Henty book that I ever read, and when I finished it I was hooked. Henty will take you to the land of ancient Egypt, and you will be able to live his story because of the depth and detail of his writing. Excellent characters and adventurous plot keep you into this book. If you enjoy historical fiction without objectionable content, give G. A. Henty a try!
10 YEAR OLD BOY  Oct 15, 2005
This book was exciting from the very beginning until the very end. I thought it was one of the best books I've ever read. It is about a Rebu Prince who lost his kingdom, his father, his family, and his home to the Egyptians in battle and was taken captive to Egypt. There, he was made a slave with his friend, Jethro. But he was not sad there for he was chosen by the high priest of the temple of the god, Osiris. Amuba, the Prince, made a friend at the priest's house, called Chebron. The main part was when they were outside trying to shoot a hawk who was killing all the water fowl. They both fired their bow and arrows. Since the prince had been in a battle, he hit the hawk but Chebron, who had never been in a battle before, missed and killed the sacred cat. In Egypt, if you kill a cat, you will be killed. From that point on in the story, things get exciting. People die, battles happen, the Prince and his comrades flee. In the end, Chebron is save because of the heroics of his friends. I rate this book a 5 star. If you want any kind of book just read this one!!
