In Binky's third adventure, our intrepid, sometimes accident-prone hero is shaken out of his routine when he's forced to contend with Gracie, a dainty striped foster kitty who comes to live at Binky's space station (aka his home at 42 Sentinel Parkway). Binky instantly resents the new arrival, whose cute face and perfect manners are downright annoying. Indeed, Gracie seems too perfect. So Binky decides to do some undercover investigating and discovers a shocking truth about the family guest. Soon Binky is thrust full-throttle into a situation that puts all his Space Cat skills to the ultimate test!
Binky the Space Cat returns for his third not-so-quite-out-of-this-world adventure.
The doughty astronaut keeps his humans safe in their space station (suburban house), but his life has become boring...nap, snack, cuddle, nap, catch aliens (bugs), nap. Then his humans bring home foster cat Gracie. Andquelle horreur! He must share his food, litter and best friend, Ted! When explaining the situation to Gracie doesn't work, Binky stalks her, taking notes. She's too perfect; maybe the aliens created a robot cat in an attempt to infiltrate the space station. But no, when Binky tests Gracie to see if she hates aliens as much as he, she reveals her true identity: Captain Gracie of F.U.R.S.T. (Felines of the Universe Ready for Space Travel), clearance level 6, License to Scratch; she's Binky's superior and it's time for his annual review! Binky must prove himself or lose his commission. He's made some mistakes in the past, but his humans and his space station need him now! Then aliens actually do invade; will Gracie and Binky be able to beat back the attack? All the ingredients are present for Spires' chubby and sweetly delusional kitty's return: Binky's wild imaginings, deadpan humor, occasional space gas (poot).
Fans will celebrate; aliens will quiver in fright.(Graphic fiction. 7-14)

This is a fun story. The author is funny, but is able to deliver a moral lesson on jealousy. This book is a great option if you have a child that doesn't like to read. The graphics are engaging and the text isn't overwhelming. The kids really enjoyed the "graphic novel" layout and thought Binky was hilarious. Any book that can make my kids laugh and teach them a moral lesson is a winner in my "book." Great read.
This is the 3rd book in a series of Binky books. It was equally as great as the first 2 books. Cannot wait for another! Very appropriate for children. My son read the first book in 1st grade he is now in 3rd grade and still loves Binky's adventures. Highly recommend to other parents. It is a graphic novel that is funny and engaging for all ages.
Binky has become a beloved character in our house. He is equally loved by our 7 and 10 year old. The writing is clever and fun. The graphic novel style is a hit with boys.
