Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 12/01/2012 K-Gr 3—Skippyjon Jones is back for another adventure. This Siamese cat who imagines he is really a Chihuahua walks the high electrical wire, showing off for his sisters. His mother is alarmed, and the feline gets a time out. Nothing keeps this cat down for long though, and soon enough, he imagines that he has joined his friends in the Chimichango Gang and their Cirque de Olé. Singing and rhymes ensue with Skippyjon ultimately arriving safely in his mama's arms, albeit infested with fleas. The author uses a weirdly unstructured rhyming text that is as hyper as her protagonist. The illustrations are also chaotic, swirling about the pages with bright colors and lots of imagination. The combination of text, song, and illustration lends to the overall feeling of unruliness. Fans of the series will enjoy the latest installment, making it a likely purchase where the earlier books are popular.—B.
