Summary

Summary

In the fourth book in the CatStronauts graphic novel series, the stalwart Cat-Stro-Bot is stranded, and the CatStronauts have to stage an off the books robot rescue!

Cat-Stro-Bot has been with the CatStronauts through it all. He's saved the team as a stowaway on their mission to the moon, brought the team back from a crash on Mars, and co-piloted the crucial shuttle in the dreaded space station situation.

But now Cat-Stro-Bot is stranded on Jupiter's coldest moon after a mission gone wrong--and his best friend/creator Blanket isn't about to leave him behind. When CATSUP brass declines a rescue mission request, Blanket creates robot stand-ins for the team. Soon, the rest of the CatStronauts, Major Meowser, Pom Pom and Waffles, are off on their longest journey ever with experimental new technology. The robot rescue is afoot!

In this full-color graphic novel, debut author/illustrator Drew Brockington takes the CatStronauts to the brink, adding in mounds of robot glitches, wonky cover-ups, and fish jokes by the ton!

Drew Brockington has flown a Space Shuttle, repaired the International Space Station, and served in Mission Control; all during a week at Space Camp. He works at his drawing table while his dog snores at his feet. CatStronauts is his first book. He lives with his family in Minneapolis.

Horn Book Review

Blanket is devastated when Cat-Stro-Bot is stranded on Europa. Unwilling to abandon his pal, Blanket convinces his fellow CatStronauts to "borrow" a spacecraft for a rescue mission. As in the previous two books, the humor of ludicrous situations (the CatStronauts replace themselves with suspiciously efficient robot decoys) and cat-centric logic (the latest space venture is a global fish-finder satellite) is accentuated by dryly funny dialogue and expressive, dynamic panel illustrations.
