Skippyjon Jones is a cat who dreams of being a dog. His adventure in this book involves him joining up with a group of bandits and whatever "mischief" they can get into. All of the Skippyjon Jones books are a hoot, and the creative language is sure to keep children interested. ( )

This one was good but if you do not know Spanish, you may struggle like I did! It was a good story about Skippy Jon Jones who had big ears that did not fit his head and had too much imagination! ( )

Teaching diversity and multiculturalism. Also good for teaching fantasy stories.

SkippyJon Jones is a kitten. A very active, inquisitive, and imaginative kitten who loves to play pretend. When his mother banishes him to his room to think about what it is to be a cat, not the other things he pretends to be, he turns on his imagination again and pretends to be a Chihuahua in Mexico, fighting bandits and saving the day. A truly fun, multicultural read-aloud.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142404039, Paperback)

My name is Skippito Friskito.
I fear not a single bandito.
My manners are mellow,
I'm sweet like the Jell-O,
I get the job done, yes indeed-o.
Skippyjon Jones is no ordinary kitten. Oh, no. . . .He's actually El Skippito, a great sword-fighter ready to battle banditos the world over! With a little imagination and a whole lot of fun, this frisky cat dons a mask and cape and takes on a bad bumble-beeto to save the day. And along the way, he'll be sure to steal young reader's hearts, yes indeed-o!

Skippyjon Jones is a Siamese cat with an overactive imagination who would rather be El Skippito, his Zorro-like alter ego.
