Binky the Space Cat based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Binky is a space cat - yes, you heard that right! He is officially certified for space travel. Binky's love for inventions comes in handy as he works to build spaceship so that he can travel throughout space and most importantly, fight alien invaders! He has sworn to protect his humans from alien foes (which look strangely like bugs!). He must train very hard in order to become the space defender that his family needs. This graphic novel is perfect for younger readers as it is easy to follow and has a lot of pictures. It is very witty and you will definitely fall in love with Binky and his quirkiness. Ashley has created a character who is adventurous yet has the perfect little heart as he loves his humans so much and puts the needs of his family above everything else. I highly recommend this graphic novel, and encourage you to read the entire Binky series of books!

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.
