About The Space Cat Sci-Fi Series

Explore space with Flyball, a little gray kitten with a taste for adventure. Join Space Cat on escapades across the solar system to Mars, Venus, and the strange planet Alpha Centauri in this beloved four book sci-fi series. For US and Canadian residents only

Space Cat

A little gray kitten with a taste for adventure stows away on an airplane, and the daring stunt turns out to be his first step toward becoming … Space Cat! The plane’s pilot, Captain Fred Stone, names his fuzzy new friend Flyball and welcomes him to an experimental station set up in the middle of the desert. Flyball enjoys supervising the station’s workers and takes particular interest in the big rocket ship that he’s not allowed to explore. Regardless of the rules, the kitty is determined to hitch another ride, and before you know it, Flyball’s wearing a custom-made pressurized suit and headed for the Moon.

Young readers will delight in taking a look at space exploration from Flyball’s point of view and following his escapades across the solar system.

“An amusing combination of comical cat story and science fiction for the youngest fans, made even more amusing by the artist’s interpretation of a cat in a space suit.” — Horn Book

Space Cat Visits VenusSpace Cat Visits Venus

Flyball the Space Cat is back, and this time he’s living in Luna Port, the first city on the Moon. Workers at the lunar station are building a rocket to transport him and his pilot buddy, Colonel Fred Stone, to Venus. The two friends take a long voyage to the planet, where they encounter violet skies, torrential ammonia rains, and strange plants that can communicate without speaking.

“This easy science fiction book continues the same kind of humor and adventure of the author’s first book, Space Cat. Illustrations in black and white are well suited to the text. Recommended.” — Library Journal

Space Cat Meets MarsSpace Cat Meets Mars

The dauntless Space Cat — aka Flyball — and his pal, Colonel Fred, blast off for their most fantastic destination yet! While they’re on their way home from Venus, the astronauts are forced to make an emergency landing on Mars. Although Flyball’s a bit bored by the Red Planet at first, his curiosity is piqued by its sole surviving fishing cat, a friendly female named Moofa. Will she turn out to be the cat’s meow?

This new edition of a charmingly illustrated story is the third of a four-book series starring the intrepid feline known as Space Cat.

Space Cat and the KittensSpace Cat and the Kittens

Flyball, the famous Space Cat, is a father now! He and Moofa, the last of the Martian fishing cats, are the proud parents of a pair of mischievous, fun-loving kittens, Marty and Tailspin. The whole family joins Colonel Fred Stone and a new friend, Bill, on a mission to Alpha Centauri to seek out places where humans can live. Along the way, the crew makes an amazing discovery — a planet abounding in iguanodons, pterodactyls, tyrannosauri, and a host of other prehistoric creatures.

“Paul Galdone’s pictures … have humor and imagination to match the text,” noted the Saturday Review of this charmingly illustrated storybook, the last of a four-book series starring the intrepid feline known as Space Cat.
