La description

Binky may look like an ordinary housecat, but he’s actually a certified member of F. U.R. S.T. (Felines of the Universe Ready for Space Travel). But his mission to blast off into outer space (the backyard) to battle aliens (bugs) is delayed when he realizes he’s left something behind—and it’s not the anti-gravity kitty litter! Readers will love all five titles in the Binky series, which mix dry humour and sci-fi slapstick with lots of heart. Soon to be a TV series in fall 2019!

Spires's mix of sly, dry and slapstick humor in her first graphic novel is perfect.

With plenty of visual gags and a cute hero, this book is perfect for kids who are transitioning from easy readers to early chapter books, while the dry humor will also keep stronger readers engaged.
