Fun little book with great voices and a relatively interesting plot. My 4 year old daughter that loves cats and science fixtion is completely enamoured with it. What was an impulse buy when I had a sore throat so I could skip out on reading a bedtime story one night has become one of the most requested stories in our house. Definitely worth the price

Cushman, D. (2004). Space cat. New York: HarperCollins.Grades 1 and 2Space Cat is returning home to Earth with his sidekick Earl the robot when a space rock hits their spaceship. Without fuel, Space Cat is forced to make an emergency landing on an unknown planet. In need of fuel, he looks for the king¿s help. King Zorp cannot share any of his fuel since his whole planet depends on machines to keep the air and water clean. While Space Cat and the king visit the machine room, a malfunction causes the machines to fall apart. Thanks to Earl the robot and his awful cooking, Space Cat is able to use Earl¿s noodles as glue and saves the machines. King Zorp thanks Space Cat¿s actions with enough fuel to get him home. Space cat is the perfect selection for kids who want to graduate from picture books. Part of the I Can Read Book series, it gives children their first experience with ¿real¿ books. The plot is easy to follow, the vocabulary is accessible, and the illustrations are bold and colorful. Children will enjoy the humor in Earl¿s attempts at cooking and Space Cat¿s heroic effort at saving King Zorp¿s planet.
