Kids Can Press | August 1, 2009 | Hardcover

Binky the Space Cat is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funny and cute! This is such a wonderful graphic novel for children! Binky is an eccentric little cat with a football-shaped head with a desire to venture out into outer space. Older fans of Scaredy Squirrel will get a kick out of this lovable feline!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Fantastic for Young and Old Binky came to live with his humans as a kitten. He is all grown up and he loves his humans. He has discovered many things about the world with the most important being aliens. Humans call them bugs but cats know better. He decides to leave his space station (house) so he can spend his life saving the universe from aliens but first he must build a rocket. While building his rocket he also spends his time saving his own humans from the aliens but when the rocket is finished he finds he has left something very important behind. This is a truly adorable book! I enjoyed every single frame of it. The story has an amazingly full plot for such a short number of pages. Binky will capture the heart of the intended audience right away. I also hazard a guess that Binky would be enjoyed by cat lovers of any age. The book is very funny, I caught myself giggling out loud more than once. The humour comes out in the illustrations which one wants to linger over as they are full of detail. The author's graphic style of drawing the characters: Binky and the humans (a single mom and her son) are unique and very eye catching. The whole book is done in shades of grey, with faint browns and blues and eye catching pops of red here and there. Gorgeous to look at. A great, fun read that kids are going to love.
