Additional Notes

From The Publisher*In the third book in the CatStronauts graphic novel series, your favorite elite team of cat astronauts is a member short--one of the team has quit!

When chief science officer Pom Pom rejoins the CatStronauts on the International Space Station, she has to get to work right away--the Hubba Bubba Telescope isn't working, and CATSUP is losing funding by the day!
But as the CatStronauts and Mission Control race to find answers, the unthinkable happens and pilot Waffles is forced to orbit the Earth in nothing but his space suit. Even though he's no scaredy cat, Waffles has a hard time staying out in space. When disaster on a global scale rears its head, will a fractured CatStronauts team be enough to save the day?
In this full color graphic novel, debut author/illustrator Drew Brockington takes the CatStronauts to the brink, adding in mounds of jokes, charm, asteroid showers, and enough tuna for everyone!
Review Quote*Praise for CatStronauts: "With its appealing blend of cuteness, substance, and humor, this should have readers over the moon. " p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} -Kirkus Reviews
Review Quote*"Brockington's off-the-wall kitty sci-fi series packs the full-color panels with cute cats, space travel, and comical high jinks... sure to elicit lots of giggles among middlegrade comics fans."-Booklist
Review Quote*"The engagingly lighthearted drama and positive resolutions, and the expressive characters, who are as adorable as they are adventurous, provide... fun purchases that will do well on their own or paired with heavier nonfiction titles on history or the environment."
