School Library Journal - 11/01/2009 K-Gr 3— The irrepressible kitty boy is back in an out-of-this-world adventure involving a visit to Mars. Fans of the wannabe Chihuahua will recognize his Spanish-laced expressions and obsessions, while those new to his style will need time to adjust as the plot shifts between Earth and outer space. In this tale, he comes up against a band of Martians, including one that could be his twin (when one discounts the fact that he's green and one-eyed, hence his nickname Uno Ojo). A tug-of-war over Skippyjon's sock monkey results in the expedition ending with his safe return from the spicy planet (Mars is covered with chili powder). Skippyjon's fans will not be disappointed with his latest adventure. The colorful and energetic illustrations showcase the otherworldly setting while the kitten's alien twin is particularly appealing.—Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA - Copyright 2009 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
