Overview

Fluffy Vandermere, the cat sergeant in charge of P.U.R.S.T. (Pets of the Universe Ready for Space Travel), works tirelessly to protect the world from alien (aka bug) domination. It's a big job. "The whole planet is Fluffy's space station. All the people in the world are his humans. And every space pet out there is his responsibility." Now, suddenly and without warning, Fluffy discovers P.U.R.S.T. headquarters, the most secure building in the world, is under attack by an angry swarm of insects, and they're armed with every cat's worst nightmare — spray bottles! Warding off this level of terrifying invasion will require cunning, skill, ingenuity and the ability to move quickly. Fluffy's been out of the field and at his desk job for quite some time now — is he up to this massive challenge? You bet he is!

This hysterical graphic novel by talented artist Ashley Spires is a spin-off from her successful Binky Adventure series (Binky is a member of P.U.R.S.T.). Just as in the Binky books, dry wit and slapstick humor abound here as the animals oh-so-seriously go about their jobs — with the occasional bathroom break, of course. The artwork, presented in many images per page, deftly conveys loads of action, emotional drama and physical comedy. This is a perfect book for emerging readers who are looking for something more challenging than a picture book that doesn't have too much text. The irresistible Fluffy also does a terrific job of showcasing lessons on the character attributes of individual responsibility, determination and courage.

*Guest Blog by Joshua Hunt (My 11-yr old son) My name is Joshua and Alyssa (A. Renee) is my mom. She's always reading books and when she gets children's books, she usually uses my niece and nephew to help with the reviews. This time, she got one I wanted to help on. When she received Fluffy Strikes Back, by Ashley Spires, I was all over it! The main reason I wanted to help is because it's written like a comic book. Each page is full of photos that explain things that you'd usually have to read. They tell you everything you need to know about P.U.R.S.T. P.U.R.S.T. is an acronym for Pets of The Universe Ready for Space Travel. This company is lead by Fluffy Vandermere- a fat, white cat. Fluffy's job is to protect the world from alien domination. The aliens are flies and bees. All over the world there are dogs and cats, trained to fight these cruel invaders, protecting humans and other animals too. When P.U.R.S.T is invaded, it's up to Fluffy to defeat the evil hoard and rescue his fellow agents who are being tortured with miniature spray-bottles of water. That part was hilarious!... *For the full review: http://tinyurl.com/zt5yzo4 **My mom received this book from a Shelf Awareness drawing for a honest review.
