Skippyjon Jones

by Judy Schachner

AR 3.3

Skippyjon Jones is many things:

  • A kitten with major cattitude.
  • Mama’s Fuzzy Pants or Kitten Britches, depending on her mood.
  • An incurable bed bouncer.
  • A chihuahua wannabe.

Sent to his room, obviously not for the first time, Skippyjon Jones soon finds himself on a adventure to defeat Alfredo Buzzito the gigantic bumblebee bandit.  By his side are Los Chimichangos, a rollicking, riotous band of chihuahuas.

Bring this book out when you have a group of kids who need a fun distraction or when you just need a good laugh.  Anyone who has ever lived with a bed bouncing, imaginative boy will see him in this fuzzy hero.

With the word play and the songs sprinkled throughout, this book is also a top notch read aloud.  But be ready to put on your “best” Mexican accent so that you can keep up with Skippito!

I don’t know how I’ve managed to miss these books for so long but now that my son and I have found them we are hooked.  Cat lovers and rowdy boys alike will find something to love.
