Intrepid Space Cat Binky returns with another thrilling and dangerous adventure! While keeping his humans safe from invading aliens (i.e., insects), Binky falls from a window into OUTER SPACE! (aka the backyard). Thank goodness he has his Space Cat Exploration Kit, and he industriously takes notes on alien life until he discovers that his companion Ted (his purple mousie) fell into outer space with him. Just as he plans a rescue, wasps attack and Binky's humans pull him inside...now Binky must escape the house to save poor Ted from evil alien stingers, but his humans won't let him out! Good thing Space Cat Binky is now schooled in the ways of alien beasts. Spires's second tale of (melo-) dramatic derring-do featuring her pudgy hero-in-his-own-mind Space Cat Binky is as much of a hoot as the first. Binky flinging ear swabs like surikens at an invading fly, painting himself to blend in with the wallpaper...priceless. The muted palette and variety of panel shapes, sound effects, expressive characters and deadpan humor work in perfect rib-tickling harmony. (Graphic fiction. 7-10)
