When the three Dogberry children, Tom, Griselda and Alice, are led to the edge of this world they discover another: 'a place where time was counted only in millions of years. There was no Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, no breakfast or dinner times, only the kind of time that counts when a new star is born or an old one dies.' Their guide is a magnificent golden cat whose power enables them to fly through the boundaries of time and space, but the cat also needs the three children to nurture its power which is threatened by the sinister Raggabow who wants it for himself. The tension mounts nicely as the children struggle to thwart the malicious forces of Raggabow and also to circumvent the adults who keep getting in their way. The inviting cover conveys the essence of this fantasy for younger readers.
