FUN BOOK

Very adventurous by michael

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Feb 09, 2013

You could probably make some comparisons between Binky’s extended fantasy life and that found in the picture book The Secret Life of Walter Kitty. The difference, of course, is that while Walter could never concentrate on a single fantasy, Binky is faithful to his belief that he is a space cat. The evidence, after all, is overwhelming. Bugs = aliens. The outdoors = outer space. Easy peasy. The end result is a book that will interest emerging readers and older readers equally. If we were asked to send a cat into space, Binky would be my first choice. Visually stimulating and a lot of fun, this is great addition to any graphic novel collection. Worthy.

My four and a half year old loves this book - and his parents get a kick out of it, too. (It's longer than most picture books, but so fun and compelling that we always finish it in one sitting.)

Binky honestly makes me laugh, and this is a great book for early readers.

binky chases away an alien but falls out the window with his pretend pet ted (co-pilot) he gets away from many other aliens but leaves ted behind and many times he fails to get ted but then succeeds by digging a tunnel from the space station to space. by michael

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Feb 09, 2013

The life of your average, everyday spacecat is never easy. Binky doesn’t really live in a space station, but try telling him that. With so many invading aliens/moths to defeat, it’s little wonder that he keeps so busy. One day, while routinely chasing an alien around and about the home, Binky accidentally leaps through a screen window and finds himself in outer space/the outdoors. Worst of all, his beloved mousie toy Ted (and co-pilot) has fallen out as well. Binky is rescued by his humans but Ted is left in the clutches of the enemy (wasps). Now Binky must find a way to locate and save his best friend, no matter what the cost.
