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.

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.
