In this quirky graphic novel, Binky decides to venture out into the great unknown. His people leave the family space station (house) every day, and he wants to know what’s out there. After making all necessary preparations, Binky sets out to explore space (the backyard) and battle fierce aliens (bugs).This would be a fun book to read together and then share a trip into your own outdoor “space” to look for alien invaders! Be sure to check out some of the library’s many titles on insects and backyard critters to figure out just what those aliens really are. Some great books to start with are: Backyard Detectives: Critters Up Close by Nic Bishop, Night Science for Kids by Terry Krautwurst, Bugs: a Read and Do Book by Judith Moffat, Insectigations by Cindy Blobaum, and Pet Bugs by Sally Kneidel.
