Highly recommended for kids and parents who love to read with their kids.
K. Eckert
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.
Nicola Mansfield
It's a fun read and not overly long so it's a great book for the kids to read to you.

Format: Paperback
Binky is a space cat. At least Binky thinks he is a space cat. In his mind, he has built his own spaceship, traveled to outer space, and is engaged in a continual battle with aliens (which we might call flies) from overtaking his space station (cat bed). He will now face his greatest challenge to date.

Binky is blissfully passing his days, lolling around on the space station, perfecting a balanced sequence of eat, nap, eat, nap, cuddle. He is rudely awakened one afternoon by a strange cat looming over his bed. Worse yet, Gracie the foster cat will be staying awhile. Binky will have to share his food bowls, litter box, and cuddle time. Blech. While Binky is terrific at battling aliens, he is not so great at sharing.

After a few failed attempts to coerce the strange cat into leaving, Binky makes a shocking discovery. Gracie isn't just some stray ... she's a card carrying (literally) Certified Space Cat. This cat is his boss and she's here to conduct evaluations to determine if he shall maintain space cat status. Although Binky is a bit rusty (due to his nap, eat, nap schedule) he perseveres and shows his boss what he's made of. He does so well in a giant alien showdown that he is promoted. Shortly after, Gracie moves in with the family next door and they begin making plans to construct a secret tunnel to connect their space stations.

This book is done in a comic book kind of style, which I have found to be quite appealing to kids. I think this just the right combination between a picture book and an older reader. It's not babyish at all, there are tons of photos, and just enough dialogue to be interesting but not overwhelming.

Obviously, the plot is pretty funny, and Binky is an engaging subject.

My daughter is really into graphic novels right now and loves animals so Binky was a big hit. It's a fun read and not overly long so it's a great book for the kids to read to you.

Well written and illustrated, and fun to read with my 7-year-old son. The entire series has been a pleasure to read through so far. Get this for your kids, then read it yourself.

Format: Paperback
Blinky a black and white space cat has gotten too comfortable at his assigned space station. When Grace, an orange striped tabby, shows up his world is turned upside down. Upon learning she is there to evaluate him Blinky makes lots of mistakes until his space station is invaded by alien bees. They are forced to work together to save his humans and his space station. Will Blinky pass the test?

This book is a cute story written like a graphic novel. It's sure to have children laughing with the silly antics Blinky plays to find out if Grace is an alien. This would be a good book to be read for story time. The illustrations are funny and aid in telling the story. It is also written like a graphic novel. There is an AR test available for this book too.

I read this book with my children and they laughed through out the story. They really enjoyed knowing the outcome before Blinky realized it.
