Rated 5 out of 5 by from Binky Has a House Guest Reason for Reading: Next in the series. I'm not exactly what one could call a "pet person" but Binky is just about the most adorable cat creation ever. His adventures would be down right hilarious if he just weren't so serious about himself. Spires perfectly captures the attitude and idiosyncrasies of house cats everywhere in Binky and we can understand why they have such 'tude when we realize what an important job they actually have protecting us humans from the aliens. Binky and Gracie are wonderful together as they interact and try to best each other. With an adorable story, Spires pulls it all together with her droll artwork that manages to convey such emotion within each small drawing of Binky. Binky is sure to capture the hearts of cat lovers of all ages!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing reception! I always give books as presents to the children in my life. I never received such a welcome reception as when I recently gifted Binky Under Pressure to my 10 year old cousin - "OOhhh, I LOVE Binky!" Mostly the books get tossed onto the gift pile as the next gift is being ripped open, but this one was shown to everyone in the room...I have to admit that I read it before wrapping it, and I just love Binky too :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Reluctant Readers! Thoroughly enjoying Ashley Spires Binky The Space Cat Series. Cat parents will appreciate Binky's catlike ways and kids will love the comic book style and humour. Reluctant readers will like the quick pace and short phrasing. Binky is definitely one of my new favourite characters. He's a bit sarcastic, and a little clueless - with the best of intentions of course . In this latest adventure, Spires has expanded her world, by adding a new cat. At first Binky and Gracie don't get a long, but when their human's home is under attack from the aliens, they have to work together to save them. A laugh out loud read.
