Skippyjon is a siamese cat that wants to be a chihuahua. When he gets in trouble by his mom he imagines himself as a dog and embarks an adventure with other dogs. This book is hilarious! Skippyjon becomes braver when he becomes a dog in his imagination. ( )

Skippyjon Jones, the Siamese kitty who thinks he is a Chihuahua, finds himself in the doghouse with Mama when he draws Chihuahuas all over the wall. Skippyjon gets a time-out in his bedroom, but when a call goes out for El Skippito to defeat the dreaded Bobble-ito, he’s off to save Los Chimichangos.

Whimsically illustrated, this picture book for young readers is sure to become a favorite. The youngest readers, ages three through five, are the target audience; the adventures of the Siamese kitten with the Brobdingnagian imagination are sure to delight young readers and elicit a gazillion giggles.

Recommended, especially for Skippyjon Jones fans. ( )

This book was about Skippyjon Jones, a Siamese cat who is a Chihuahua to his bones. He has a big imagination and it gets him put into the dog house when her draws Chihuahuas all over the wall.

This book was designed really well, the text was a neat font, and displayed on the pages in a cool way that added to the book. The illustrations really helped add to how excited Skippyjon Jone's imagination was, and it was done in a neat artistic way, because you have the drawings of what is happening, but also the drawings that Skippyjon draws.
GENRE: Fantasy
1. I would share this in my class as a funny book to help get my students excited about reading.
2 I would also read this to my students as a great book for those who are a little quirky and don't fit in with societies expectations. ( )
