Would make a great read-aloud for younger kids
I found "Binky the Space Cat" when searching at my library for a children's book on cats (of which there are many). As someone who enjoys both children's books and cats, I was surprised I had never heard of Binky, so I found him on the shelf (after asking where one might find the Juvenile Graphic Novel section of the library to begin with). Binky is a cute and funny story about a cat who joins "F.U.R.S.T." (Felines of the Universe Ready for Space Travel). Since he is now "Space Cat qualified," Binky works hard to protect his family from aliens (which are really just bugs). The pictures are funny and kids should enjoy them. The humor seems right in line with children and adults alike. I admit it: I snickered at Binky's toots. The story moves along quickly and the pictures should keep young readers interested. As a preschool teacher, I think my students would like Binky.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
