Binky the Space Cat

We missed this the first time around (it arrived in 2009), but now it’s offered again by Kids Can Press. The Binky Adventures are a series of full-color graphic novels written and illustrated by Ashley Spires. We’ll let Ashley describe Binky the Space Cat, the first book in the series — she does it far better than we could. “Binky is a space cat – at least in his own mind. He’s really a house cat who has never left the family ‘space station’. Unlike other house cats, Binky has a mission: To blast off into outer space (outside), explore unknown places (the backyard) and battle aliens (bugs). Binky must undergo rigorous training so he can repel the alien attacks that threaten his humans. As he builds his spaceship, he must be extremely careful with his blueprints – the enemy is always watching. Soon Binky is ready to voyage into outer space. His humans go out there every day and he’s sure they need a certified space cat to protect them. But just as he’s about to blast off with his co-pilot, Ted (a stuffed mousie), Binky realizes that he’s left something very important behind — and it’s not the zero-gravity kitty litter.” Check it out at
