Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-4–When Binky the space cat and Ted, his stuffed mouse, fall out of the window and find themselves adrift in outer space (the backyard), the cat has to rely on his training to combat the aliens (bees and spiders) and to get himself home again. Although the feline returns safely, his trusty cohort has been left behind and Binky must brave the unexpected again. The text is cleverly written, and the jokes are appealing to young readers. From Binky's inner monologue about the motives of his humans to his excessive habit of munching on cat crunchies and releasing a discreet “pooot,” he is funny. As with Binky the Space Cat (Kids Can, 2009), the graphic-novel layout is simple and easy to follow. Spires changes the number of panels and frames per page and includes full-page layouts. The watercolor illustrations are a perfect medium to capture Binky's changing expressions, allowing readers to understand his emotions even without reading the text. A great choice for beginning chapter-book readers or an introduction to graphic novels, this one's a winner in both quality and appeal.–Catherine Brenner, Bethlehem Public Library, Delmar, NYα(c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

In his second adventure, “official certified space cat” Binky falls through a space station porthole (the bathroom window) and lands in outer space (outside). His humans save him, but his stuffed mouse, Ted, gets left behind. Kids will laugh at Binky’s antics as he tries to use alien tactics (acting like a bug) to sneak back outside and rescue Ted. Spires offers just the right combination of cute cat drawings, a silly plot, and fart jokes to appeal to her audience. A slightly open ending will leave readers eagerly awaiting more Binky graphic novels. Grades 2-4. --Snow Wildsmith --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

When I try to think of cat-related graphic novels for kids, I find that titles don't fall trippingly off of my tongue. Sure there's the fabulous "Fashion Kitty" (a great series, in spite of the sound of its name). But that's about it on the feline side of things. While mice have always fared well in comics ("Mickey Mouse", "Maus", etc.) and continue to do so ("Babymouse", "Mouse Guard", "Missile Mouse", etc.) cats don't get a lot of play aside from the odd "Krazy Kat" and "Calvin and Hobbes". Enter Binky. Binky is strong. Binky is brave. Binky is noble. And Binky also happens to be an overweight housecat who believes that he is a brave denizen of outer space. Having divided and conquered already in his previous book "Binky the Space Cat", our hero returns in this, his most daring adventure yet.Read more ›

I appreciate Binky's role for new and emerging readers, but the bathroom humor (admittedly--it's minimal) gets to me every now and then (the occasional gas passing and such). All in all, it's a fun read, but one I'm content getting from the library rather than owning.

I picked up Binky to pop out of the glove box when the kids got bored on a long car ride. It worked beautifully. As soon as they started to get out of sorts I gave them Binky and they were happily absorbed. Peace in the back seat. Ahh.

I'm a 3rd-5th grade teacher and my kids really enjoy this comic book series. The best part is that it's leveled for Accelerated Reader (AR), so my kiddos get points for reading it. As an adult, I can appreciate appropriate comic books for children, especially since we should be providing multiple genres of text.

_Binky to the Rescue_ relates Binky the Space Cat's misadventures after he falls out of the window of his Space Station (aka house) and encounters an alien craft (aka a bee hive). When he loses his beloved toy mouse, Ted, directly below the enemy, how will Binky rescue him?

This graphic book is delightfully illustrated as was the original book in the series, and my children enjoyed it thoroughly, but I did not feel it was quite as funny or intelligently written as _Binky the Space Cat_. Still, it's a very worthwhile read.

This is a fantastic book for children (young or teen), and great to read as an adult. I love the surprisingly stupid wit of Binky. His perspective on the human world offers a lot of laughs and creative follow-up play. My 5- and 3-year old nephews just gobbled this and Binky the Space Cat right up!
