The Time Travelling Cat and The Tudor Treasure

This novel is about a real search for the Philosophers Stone, which people really believed in in the sixteenth century.

Queen Elizabeth I ordered a magician cum scientist called Dr Dee to find it, so she could have lots of gold and live for ever.

In this story Dr Dee gets Topher and Ka, the time-travelling cat to help him in his search.
