While in hot pursuit of an alien invader (a bug), Binky accidentally falls out the space station porthole (bathroom window) and finds himself in outer space (outside) for the very first time. But just as Binky begins to explore, he discovers that his copilot, Ted (stuffed mousie), is trapped beneath an enemy warship (wasps' nest)! Binky must rescue Ted from the clutches of these evil aliens. Will he be able to save his best friend? Can Ted survive his ordeal? Does Binky still suffer from space gas? This book will delight graphic novel readers of all ages. AGES: 7-10 AUTHOR: Ashley Spires grew up in a little town on the coast of British Columbia called Tsawwassen with two parents, an older sister, eight cats, a dog and the occasional newt. For a while she thought that animation was her future, but then photography caught her eye, which led her to bookmaking courses. These classes opened her eyes to the world of illustration and she never looked back. Delighted that there was, in fact, a career that allowed her to remain in her pyjamas, hang out with her cats and be productive at the same time, she knew illustration was the perfect job for her.

Spires's skilled cartooning makes this easy to read and follow, with clear actions supporting a silly, outrageous story.--Publishers Weekly Visually stimulating and a lot of fun, this is great addition to any graphic novel collection. Worthy.--SLJ Fuse 8 Spires offers just the right combination of cute cat drawings, a silly plot, and fart jokes to appeal to her audience.--Booklist Intrepid Space Cat Binky returns with another thrilling and dangerous adventure! The muted palette and variety of panel shapes, sound effects, expressive characters and deadpan humor work in perfect rib-tickling harmony.--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review A great choice for beginning chapter-book readers or an introduction to graphic novels, this one's a winner in both quality and appeal.--School Library Journal
