In the fourth book in the CATSTRONAUTS graphic novel series, the stalwart Cat-Stro-Bot is stranded, and the CatStronauts have to stage an off the books robot rescue!
Cat-Stro-Bot has been with the CatStronauts through it all. He's saved the team as a stowaway on their mission to the moon, brought the team back from a crash on Mars, and co-piloted the crucial shuttle in the dreaded space station situation.
But now Cat-Stro-Bot is stranded on Jupiter's coldest moon after a mission gone wrong--and his best friend/creator Blanket isn't about to leave him behind. When CATSUP brass declines a rescue mission request, Blanket creates robot stand-ins for the team. Soon, the rest of the CatStronauts, Major Meowser, Pom Pom and Waffles, are off on their longest journey ever with experimental new technology. The robot rescue is afoot!
In this full-color graphic novel, debut author/illustrator Drew Brockington takes the CatStronauts to the brink, adding in mounds of robot glitches, wonky cover-ups, and fish jokes by the ton!
"Brockington's off-the-wall kitty sci-fi series packs the full-color panels with cute cats, space travel, and comical high jinks... sure to elicit lots of giggles among middlegrade comics fans."--Booklist
Praise for CatStronauts: An Amazon Best Book for April 2017"With its appealing blend of cuteness, substance, and humor, this should have readers over the moon. " --Kirkus Reviews
"The engagingly lighthearted drama and positive resolutions, and the expressive characters, who are as adorable as they are adventurous, provide... fun purchases that will do well on their own or paired with heavier nonfiction titles on history or the environment."
--School Library Journal
"Humor and suspense compete throughout... In playful, mock-heroic, full-color cartoons, Brockington mines space theater for everything.... Even the chapter headings get in on the fun."--Publishers Weekly
"There's lots of enthusiasm for graphic novels for this age range, and the CatStronauts deserve a spot."--BCCB
