2. Who does the President call for help?

3. Who are the CatStronauts? What are their names? How would you describe each one? What have they been called upon to do?

4. What happens when the engineers are assembling the rocket kit? How does this impact the CatStronauts mission? What does Blanket bring on the ship that helps save the mission?

5. Why is the cat wearing the "Neil" shirt significant? Who does he represent?

6. At the end of the CatStronauts mission, the Solar NRG Plant does not work. What does Waffles do to finish the mission?

7. Are the CatStronauts successful?

For September's Book Club, we will be reading:

The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale & Dean Hale

"Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when ... Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! A big blue monster is threatening the goats! Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia. But luckily Princess Magnolia has a secret -- she's also the Princess in Black, and stopping monsters is the perfect job for her! Can the princess sneak away, transform into her alter ego, and defeat the monster before the nosy duchess discovers her secret?" —Summary

We will be meeting on Wednesday, September 1 at 3:30 PM. Book Club will be held outside. In the case of inclement weather, Book Club will move into the Sydney Wright Room.
