Skippyjon Jones, Lost in Spice (With Audio CD)by Judy Schachner
Holy hot tamales! El Skippito is my favorite Siamese cat, and in his fifth adventure he is off to Mars. Judy Schachner created another excellent read-aloud full of imagination, silly songs, and Spanish vocabulary. I dare any kid on your holiday list not to love it!
Synopses & Reviews
Buckle up, amigos — everyone's favorite kitty boy is about to lift off. You'll want to be there when the brave Skippito gets lost in spice.
That's right, spice. Skippy knows — from his big ears to his toes — that the planet Mars is red because it's covered in spicy red pepper. To prove it, he's off on a space jaunt replete with craters, crazies, and creatures from Mars. His new adventure is packed with witty wordplay, Spanish phrases, and Judy Schachner's trademark hilarity. This rollicking romp is simply out of this world.
"Skippyjon Jones, the Siamese kitten who thinks he's a Chihuahua, is also 'nuts about Mars,' which he decides to visit via a trip to his closet. Passing through the constellations, the space-suited (really, it's a snowsuit) feline encounters Los Chimichangos, who appear in a fiery comet, as well as his green Martian double once he reaches the red planet, which is covered in chili powder. Skippyjon's ludicrous adventures and energetic personality will keep fans happy that his imagination remains unchecked. A recording of the story read by the author is also included. Ages 3 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
