School Library Journal - 08/01/2021 Gr 1–3—In this spin-off of Brockington's immensely popular "CatStronauts" series, kittens Waffles and Pancake are spending the weekend with their dad. Before the young cats head home to their mother's house, they and their dad stop off at the science museum in the Big City. While exploring the museum, the cat family gets separated and the kittens imagine the fun and worries of living in the museum. Thankfully they are soon reunited and the kittens get safely home to Mom-Cat's house. Young readers will enjoy this accessible, full-color graphic novel. While some of the vocabulary is somewhat complex for emerging independent readers, the illustrations offer helpful context. The kittens are cute and funny, and children will relate to the fun and excitement of visiting a museum. Young readers whose parents don't live together will appreciate the inclusion of this family perspective. Fans of the original "CatStronauts" series, as well as slightly younger readers, will enjoy this Earth-bound story of these kitten characters. VERDICT This silly, colorful tale will appeal to graphic novel enthusiasts over a wide range of reading levels.—Ellen Conlin, Naperville P.L., IL - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
