Comments for Binky the Space Cat

Binky the Space Cat: 12/05/13

cover artBinky the Space Cat by Ashley Spires is the first of the Binky the cat series. Binky is a house cat who lives with his human family and his favorite toy mouse. He believes his home is actually a space station and the outside world is outer space. Bugs are dangerous aliens.

To protect himself and his family, Binky is learning how to be a space cat, a member of F.U.R.S.T. (Felines of the Universe Ready for Space Travel). Much of the book then, is his training, which takes common house cat tasks and puts them in an extra terrestrial perspective.

The Binky books are short graphic novels aimed at the lower elementary grades. Although Binky's character design doesn't quite make him look like a cat (the ears bother me). But for anyone who lives with cats — especially house cats, will laugh at Binky as he prepares for space.
