From Booklist
Gr. 1-2. In this sf adventure from the An I Can Read Book series, Space Cat and his comic sidekick, Earl the Robot, are heading home to Earth when a space rock crashes into their rocket ship's fuel tank. Space Cat quickly lands on a nearby planet and looks for help, while Earl mends the fuel tank and cooks up a batch of his infamous noodles. When Space Cat's overtures to the local king prove useless, Earl's noodles save the day. Though the plot may be a bit silly, the story doesn't take itself too seriously and the words are easy to read. The somewhere-out-in-space setting will appeal to kids who have run through Yolen's Commander Toad books all too quickly. Best of all, Cushman's cartoonlike drawings, zinging with bright colors, give the book instant appeal. The lightning bolt on Space Cat's space suit is evidently an homage to Flash Gordon, who is named on the dedication page. Carolyn Phelan


Space Cat and his trusty robot, Earl, are forced to land their rocket on a strange planet. Space Cat has to find more fuel to get home. Will he ever blast off again?
