While in hot pursuit of an alien invader (a bug), Binky accidentally falls out the space station porthole (bathroom window) and finds himself in outer space (outside) for the very first time. But just as Binky begins to explore, he discovers that his copilot, Ted (stuffed mousie), is trapped beneath an enemy warship (wasps’ nest)! Binky must rescue Ted from the clutches of these evil aliens. Will he be able to save his best friend? Can Ted survive his ordeal? Does Binky still suffer from space gas? This book will delight graphic novel readers of all ages.
Ashley Spires is the author and illustrator of Binky the Space Cat and illustrator of C’mere, Boy! She lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
A great choice for beginning chapter-book readers or an introduction to graphic novels, this one's a winner in both quality and appeal.
—School Library Journal
Intrepid Space Cat Binky returns with another thrilling and dangerous adventure! The muted palette and variety of panel shapes, sound effects, expressive characters and deadpan humor work in perfect rib-tickling harmony.
—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
Spires offers just the right combination of cute cat drawings, a silly plot, and fart jokes to appeal to her audience.
Spires's skilled cartooning makes this easy to read and follow, with clear actions supporting a silly, outrageous story.
Visually stimulating and a lot of fun, this is great addition to any graphic novel collection. Worthy.
