This blog is an offshoot from my other book blog that I've maintained since 2007. I read so many graphic novels it was time to give them their own blog here which I've maintained since Dec, 2012. Graphic & manga reviews prior to that date are still located on my *other* blog.
316. Binky: License to Scratch by Ashley Spires
Binky: License to Scratch by Ashley Spires Binky, #5
"Binky the space cat and his team of space pets are left at the vet's office while their humans are away. Binky plans an escape, only to stumble on a secret experiment that could give vicious aliens the upper hand! It's up to Binky and his friends to save the humans ... and themselves! Binky: License to Scratch is the final book in the Binky Adventure series, where dry humour and sci-fi slapstick are mixed with lots of heart."

I'm a big fan of Binky and always look forward to his latest adventure but have to say for the first time I was disappointed. The story just didn't hold up. Honestly, it was lame. The usual familiar pet things that make you go 'aww' or laugh were missing. The only times I laughed here were from the butt jokes: the thermometre at the vet and the farts. The title doesn't even make sense. Oh boy, for the advertised last book in this series what a let down!
