CatStronauts Space Station Situation
CatStronauts: Space Station Situation - Drew Brockington
I love cats and I’ve been looking at these graphic novels for a while now. The CatStronauts are just what they sound like, cats who are astronauts. Weird, yes but feasible in a kid-friendly world. I enjoyed all the subtle cat references, the friendships, the easy flow of this graphic novel, and their adventure.
 
In this mission, Pom Pom is finished helping colonize Mars and is now meeting up with his team on the Space Station. The team will now try to repair the Hubba Bubba Telescope. Sounds easy enough for the CatStronauts until transmission problems arise and they can’t talk to ground control. They discover that meteor showers are causing all the interference. The problems just continue for the team as they try to fix one problem after another, until they discover that if they don’t act quickly, destruction on a massive scale is in their future.
 
“What the fish is going on?!” These references were just part of the text, which made me smile as I read this book. References to the kitty box, tuna, kitties, etc., caught my attention, although there really weren’t a whole lot of them. I felt that they added to the charm of the book and to the characters, themselves.
 
This graphic novel had a good flow to it. There was enough action to keep me engaged and the illustrations were detailed and they complemented to the story. I’m often asked what would be a great graphic novel to give to a young child and I think this one would fit the bill. It’s a great child’s graphic novel for any level, I believe. I’m going to pick up other books in this series to see what these cats are up to.  “Meow, meow, meow.”

CATS. IN. SPACE. 1 of 2
CatStronauts: Space Station Situation - Drew Brockington

I started with book 3 of the CatStronauts series titled Space Station Situation which follows a team of cats in space. CATS. IN. SPACE. Is it any wonder that I started this series?! Picture a world where the entire population is made up of cats EVEN THE PRESIDENT (who is only concerned with his reelection I might add). In this installment, a meteor is headed toward earth and in order to track its progress and hopefully stop it our intrepid heroes must fix the Hubba Bubba Telescope. However, one of their crewmates has abandoned his post after a traumatizing solo flight around the earth in a spacesuit and the mission is sure to fail without him. (His name is Waffles by the way because of course all of the cats have names much like the cats we are familiar with in this reality.) The book is rife with funny puns and asides as well as excellent illustrations. I wouldn't class this as the best graphic novel I've ever read but I liked it well enough to give another book in the series a shot.
