CatStronauts: Race to Mars | Drew Brockington
8 posts | 9 read | 1 to read
In the sequel to CatStronauts: Mission Moon, your favorite elite group of cat astronauts are thrust into the space-race of the century! Fresh off of their heroic mission to save the world, the CatStronauts--Major Meowser, Pom Pom, Blanket and Waffles--are taking a well deserved victory lap. Parades and fancy awards dinners are the new norm! But around the world, other cat space programs are watching--in particular the CosmoCats, the first cats to go to space! With national pride and scientific research on the line, the world's space programs rush to be the first cats to Mars, and the CatStronauts are starting months behind! Can they catch up and prove their first mission was no fluke? In this graphic novel, debut author/illustrator Drew Brockington takes the CatStronauts further than they've every gone, adding in mounds of jokes, charm, science, and enough yarn and scratching posts for everyone!

Alas, I have now read the last of the series 🥲(at least as far as internet bibliographic records and my library suggests), though I'll have to see if the Waffles and Pancake spinoff is available. 🤔 I appreciate that old tropes have more cuddly finishes: Al running the ship just needs to stretch their legs/have a vacation; the space race would turn out better if resources were pooled, old animosities set aside, and common interests identified.

After reading and loving the first book, I had to continue reading this great series. First of all, the acronyms in this book are hilarious and great... CATSUP, MEOW, etc... Second... I love love love the cat that is always hungry. He is my favorite catstronaut. This time around there are three other cat teams besides the Catstronauts trying to get to Mars first. It's a great story about competition and working together as a team.

Fun little cat romp through space where all the teams come together in the end. Very cute and I love the robot cat and how one cat is hungry all the time. On to volume 3! Here‘s #Ozzie on my messy unmade bed next to the book. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #catsoflitsy

If librarians had a $1 for every time they heard, “the dog chewed it”........... 😩

Bourriquet76 It‘s not that hard to stop your dog from eating books. Train your dog and don‘t leave books on the floor. 🙄 5y
benchley1 Worse to hear "it went out that way!" No, no it didn't... 5y

Betty @Bourriquet76 I keep books on the tables out of reach. How can I train dog not to chew? 5y
Tamra @benchley1 😖 Yes, I can only imagine! 5y
Tamra @Betty one was on an end table and the other was inside the end table on a shelf. 🤨 He must have been having a “ruff” day. 😝 First day he‘s been home alone for any significant period of time since we finished up the semester in mid-December. (edited) 5y
Ashley_Nicoletto My dog ate a book one time and she's never done it again. This may be due to my anger level. ?? (Don't worry I'm not an animal abuser and there are no spankings in my house) A really loud "BAILEY!!! What is this? Did you do this? Naughty girl." Usually does it. ????‍♀️??‍♀️ 5y
Tamra @Ashley_Nicoletto 😆 I can see & hear it! 5y
emtobiasz Mine, too, had expensive tastes as a puppy. Only hardcovers and full-color graphic novels for this beast! Lately, she's graduated to couch pillows. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 5y
Tamra @emtobiasz 🙇🏾‍♀️ Lives with kids & dogs. 😅 5y

SandyW Of course no cat would EVER mangle a book. 🐈 5y
Tamra @SandyW 😼😹 Says my corner paper chewing tuxedo cat. 5y
GlassAsDiamonds 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ In the days when you actually had to hand in physical copies, I once had to tell a university professor that my dog (a puppy German Shepherd / Malamute mix) ate my computer! She‘d chewed through all the cables one night and I couldn‘t start the damned thing up to print said assignment. Mortifying but true 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 5y
Tamra @GlassAsDiamonds 😅😂 I‘d believe it! 5y
GlassAsDiamonds @Tamra so did he but probably only because I looked like I was going to die from embarrassment at the time..!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😂😂 5y
Tamra @GlassAsDiamonds stuff happens! 5y

I love the CatStronauts! Book 2 is a cold war style race to Mars - among kitties, of course. Cats should run our space program, methinks. They sure know how to meet schedules, get out of pinches, find tuna snacks, and cooperate when disaster strikes! And the art is just so damn cute. So. Damn. Cute.
Will wear my #outofprint space cat shirt today in solidarity 😺
