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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In his second adventure, official certified space cat Binky falls through a space station porthole (the bathroom window) and lands in outer space (outside). His humans save him, but his stuffed mouse, Ted, gets left behind. Kids will laugh at Binky's antics as he tries to use alien tactics (acting like a bug) to sneak back outside and rescue Ted. Spires offers just the right combination of cute cat drawings, a silly plot, and fart jokes to appeal to her audience. A slightly open ending will leave readers eagerly awaiting more Binky graphic novels.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Who doesn't love a cat comic? Although Binky thinks he's a space cat (as seen in his previous book) and his home a space station, his actions are very recognizable as classic feline. He chases bugs, jumps on the furniture, and generally makes a mess of things. He doesn't talk, though; much of this comic is narrated through captions, which express his motivations and feelings. In this case, he's stunned when he accidentally falls out a window into "outer space" and tangles with a hive of bees. Unfortunately, Binky's stuffed mouse toy, Ted, also falls into the garden, and the second half of the book follows Binky's attempts to rescue his friend. Although Binky's drawn movements are catlike, his creativity matches that of an imaginative child, providing more points of identification and amusement. Spires's skilled cartooning makes this easy to read and follow, with clear actions supporting a silly, outrageous story. Ages 7-10. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
