“Binky the space cat has been promoted to lieutenant. He’s now in charge of training the next generation of space cadets. But then he meets the new space kitten — who isn’t a kitten at all! Is someone trying to pull the fur over his eyes? Binky and Captain Gracie need to figure out the new cadet before the next alien attack!”
Written and illustrated by Ashley Spires (LARF, Small Saul) Binky Takes Charge is one of four in the Binky series about this imaginative cat. Binky reads like a comic and is packed full of silly Sci-Fi kitty misadventures.
I said it before and I’ll say it again, writing an all ages book is considerably more difficult than one would imagine, and to create one that is as lovably addictive as this, doubly so.
From page one I was chuckling and while the ending is predictable, this is kids book for goodness sakes, the writing is fun, the illustrations bright, and the characters are kitty cat to the core.
In more than one instance I laughed out loud, and that alone makes this book deserving of a recommendation.
