I first read Binky the Space Cat with my son last year; we really really enjoyed it. So I was excited when I saw Binky Under Pressure sitting on the shelf in the library. It was another great Binky book.

Binky is still a certified Space Cat but then Gracie shows up. Gracie is an adorable striped kitten and Binky is determined to expose her flaws to the family. During his investigation he finds out a shocking truth about Gracie and all of Binky’s Space Cat skills are tested.

This is an absolutely hilarious and adorable book, suitable to all ages. Binky is funny, witty, a bit accident prone and super cute. My five year old loves this series of books and I love reading them with him.

As with all of these books there is a bit of a message/learning here. Binky learns not to judge a book by its cover and to cope with feelings of jealousy. He also learns how teamwork can save the day.

Overall another great Binky book. Highly recommended for kids and parents who love to read with their kids. This is a funny, cute, and very well done book. If you love graphic novels this is one of those great ones that parents and kids will equally enjoy.

This book goes towards the following reading challenges:
- Graphic Novel Challenge

  1. Hey, thanks for this. I love Binky!! I didn't know there were anymore out. I've read the first two but haven't really kept up since my son is too old for them now. But I'm not!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the review. I haven't read the second Binky book yet; but I really enjoyed the first book and this one. They are so much fun :-)
