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. ( )
  lianaanishchenko | Dec 2, 2013 |
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. ( )

Summary:
This graphic novel is about a cat who has never left his home. Binky isn't just your normal cat. He as a great imagination and thinks about how he wants to fly to outer space and fight the aliens. His imagine goes wild but each time he tries to go into space he realizes he forgets something.

Personal Reaction:
I think this is a really good graphic novel because it illustrates a great amount of imagination. This illustrations are kid friendly and overall I would recommend it to everyone.

Classroom Extension:
1. In the classroom, the teacher could have their students make a list of what they would bring to outer space.
2. In the classroom, the teacher could have their students create their out journey and explain where they would go. ( )

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.
