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.

Ashley Spires is the author and illustrator of Binky the Space Cat and illustrator of C’mere, Boy! She lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Spires's mix of sly, dry and slapstick humor in her first graphic novel is perfect. - Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

With plenty of visual gags and a cute hero, this book is perfect for kids who are transitioning from easy readers to early chapter books, while the dry humor will also keep stronger readers engaged. - Booklist

... Binky's misadventures are a delight. - Quill & Quire

The humor in this graphic novel hits every note ... - School Library Journal, Starred Review
