Binky the Space Cat
Written and illustrated by Ashley Spires
Hi again! Its Sparrow the Graphic Novel Guru. I'm back for another excellent graphic novel recommendation, this time a book by Canadian author and illustrator Ashley Spires. Ashley has authored numerous, award winning books, including the brilliant "The Most Magnificent Thing" and "The Thing Lou Couldn't Do" which Marilyn reviewed recently. She resides in British Columbia, Canada.
Now about our graphic novel! Binky is a space cat - yes, you heard that right! He is officially certified for space travel. Binky's love for inventions comes in handy as he works to build spaceship so that he can travel throughout space and most importantly, fight alien invaders! He has sworn to protect his humans from alien foes (which look strangely like bugs!). He must train very hard in order to become the space defender that his family needs.
This graphic novel is perfect for younger readers as it is easy to follow and has a lot of pictures. It is very witty and you will definitely fall in love with Binky and his quirkiness. Ashley has created a character who is adventurous yet has the perfect little heart as he loves his humans so much and puts the needs of his family above everything else. I highly recommend this graphic novel, and encourage you to read the entire Binky series of books!
