TUESDAY: Binky the Space Cat
The cover first got my attention - isn't Binky darling? Binky enjoys his life with his humans and his stuffed mousie. But he secretly longs to be a Space Cat, fighting aliens (bugs) and exploring outer space (the back yard). There are several smaller stories woven into the book - Binky as a kitten, his relationship with his humans, his training regimen to fight aliens, and his quest for space travel.
This graphic novel is a treat! I think even adult cat lovers would love Binky. Amazon lists it for ages 9 to 12, but my 6 year old giggled through the whole thing. The illustrations are clever and endearing and are the basis for most of the humor in the story. I hope there will be more adventures for Binky in the future!
