Skippyjon Jonesby Judith B Schachner
Synopses & Reviews
Move over, Eloise and Olivia. Make room for SkippyjonJones, a Siamese kittenboy who can't resign himself to being an ordinary cat. Having a time-out in his room, he resorts to his imagination. Taking on the superhero persona of the great Spanish sword fighter Skippito, he has the adventure of his life, and readers are invited along. Zany, wild, and over-the-top, this utterly original book truly begs to be read aloud.
With the jiggly, effervescent outlines she used in I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, the smudgy, tender expressiveness of The Grannyman, and a text worthy of a sitcom, Judith Byron Schachner has created a new cat character for all ages. ¡Olé!
"The Siamese hero of this caper sleeps in a nest — with the birds — and is convinced that he's really a Chihuahua in disguise, and saves his pals from a giant Bumblebeeto Bandito. Ages 4-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Another fun read-along from Skippyjon Jones and Puffin Storytime book-and-CD library!
The New York Times bestselling Skippyjon Jones books were made to be read aloud, and so we're adding a fourth title, Skippyjon Jones and the Big Bones, to the Puffin Storytime collection. The Puffin picture book is accompanied by a compact disc that features an animated reading of the story by the author. The Puffin Storytime titles are conveniently packaged in a reusable storage bag and are great for travel, bedtime, or reading at school.
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!
