Few cats have gone where Binky dreams of going: Space! He's trained; he's put on the space suit; he's built the rocket. What could be missing? This graphic novel delights young readers with its intrepid, adorable, and just-a-little-gassy feline hero.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Binky is a space cat — at least in his own mind. He's really a house cat who has never left the family space station. Unlike other house cats, Binky has a mission: to blast off into outer space (outside), explore unknown places (the backyard) and battle aliens (bugs). Binky must undergo rigorous training so he can repel the alien attacks that threaten his humans. As he builds his spaceship, he must be extremely careful with his blueprints — the enemy is always watching.

Soon Binky is ready to voyage into outer space. His humans go out there every day and he's sure they need a certified space cat to protect them. But just as he's about to blast off with his co-pilot, Ted (stuffed mousie), Binky realizes that he's left something very important behind ... and it's not the zero-gravity kitty litter. In the first book in the Binky Adventure series, graphic-novel readers will delight in watching where this lovable and quirky cat's imagination takes him.

Synopsis:

Binky's blast-off into outer space (outside) to battle aliens (bugs) is delayed when he realizes he's left something behind - and it's not the anti-gravity kitty litter.

Klickitat, January 28, 2011 (view all comments by Klickitat)
Binky is an ordinary Canadian housecat - but don't tell him that! He believes he is a "space cat," duty bound to defeat the alien race (otherwise known as bugs to us naïve humans.)

Spires created a fun and humorous graphic novel targeted at older elementary students, as well as adults. The illustrations carry the bulk of the narrative so this title might be enjoyable to pre-readers as well. Cat lovers are an obvious audience but this title will appeal to anyone who has wondered why animals do the crazy things they do.

The sequel, Binky to the Rescue, published in 2010, is also strong.

This is a hilarious little graphic novel that's appropriate for all ages. Kids will love the humorous drawings, and older kids, adults, and cat lovers will love the slyly deadpan writing.
