From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7-- When 12-year-old Maggie Jones pays four bits for an odd little figurine at a neighbor's yard sale, she gets far more than she bargained for. It turns out to be the mummified remains of a kitten that had been the pet of Thutmose the Utmost, a boy pharoah whose reign was so tragically brief that it has been ignored by Egyptologists. Ignored or not, Thut's spirit--Maggie soon discovers--is very much alive and anxious to recover its property. Before you can say, ``The Mummy walks,'' Maggie is involved with Thut in solving an ancient mystery that still has the potential to destroy both her and her family. Despite some genuinely frightening moments, The Gilded Cat is not without its flaws. Its basic premise, for example, begs the question of how an American archaeologist could have taken the tomb of a pharoah--even one forgotten by history--out of Egypt in the first place. And even if readers ignore that improbability, they cannot ignore the fact that the book's denouement is also both predictable and--despite a careful buildup--almost perfunctory in its resolution. And yet . . . Dexter does demonstrate a real gift for mixing well-imagined elements of the supernatural with realistic settings and believable and sympathetic characters. Less critical readers will ignore the imperfections and enjoy an otherwise well-crafted and scary story. --Michael Cart, formerly at Beverly Hills Public Library
