Binky The Space Cat was a fun read. The book is written and illustrated by Ashley Spires. I gave it 3 stars because I would not normally choose to read a graphic novel. But Binky was an easy fun read about a cat who kind of reminds me of MAX from the MAX and Ruby television show. Like Max, Binky has an active imagination that gets him into a lot of trouble. I have a few student sin my class who are reading Binky books as well. It's always nice to know what my students are reading. ( )

It is so funny how the space dreamer Binky protects his humans from "Alien invaders". He knows that it is his obligation to serve and protect his humans, so he offers his services for food and cuddling. ( )

This graphic novel with very cute pictures is a delight to read. It is about Binky the ordinary cat who thinks that insects are aliens and he wants to save his humans from them. He builds a spaceship and is ready to battle those awful aliens. ( )

The humor in this graphic novel is apparent early on when the reader sees the world from the titular cat’s unique perspective; he dreams of going to “outer space”, which is the world outside his house, and he wants to protect his family from “aliens,” also known as insects. Cat lovers especially will laugh at the ways in which Binky tries to help his owner, because it’s exactly what cats do (like when he tries to “give them massages” but he is really just clawing them). Some comedic elements have a wider appeal, like the bodily humor found in the text. However, the funniest parts are when Binky uses his imagination as he prepares for his interstellar travels.

This book is good for transitional readers. Though it has fewer pages and larger fonts, it looks a lot like a graphic novel for older readers. There aren’t too many panels per page, but they are arranged in interesting ways, using different shapes and sometimes overlapping each other. Like other comics for this age group, it’s a good primer for more advanced illustrated texts. Binky is broadening his physical horizons as his readers are beginning to expand their literary ones. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Binky's blast-off into outer space (outside) to battle aliens (bugs) is delayed when he realizes he's left something behind--and it's not the anti-gravity kitty litter.
