for Binky Under Pressure by Ashley Spires
When Binky the cat’s space station (i.e., home) is invaded by foster cat Gracie, Binky is at first merely alarmed by the idea of another feline encroaching on his turf. He soon discovers that Gracie is more than just another stray, and he must prove that he’s still worthy of F.U.R.S.T. (Felines of the Universe Ready for Space Travel) membership as she puts him through his paces. But when the two discover an invading alien horde (bees), they join forces to battle the threat. This sequel to Binky the Space Cat (Kids Can Press, 2009) offers the same blend of quirkiness and charm. Binky is as singular as they come yet wholly catlike in Ashley Spires’s hilarious graphic novel. (Ages 7–10)
