School Library Journal - 07/01/2011 K-Gr 3—Skippyjon Jones and his kindle of kitty sisters are back again in this rollicking tale. Despite being a smart Siamese, the feline longs to join his "Chi-wa-la" friends at school. Mama Junebug warns him "School is for the Dogs!"—who are "unruly and drooly"—which is exactly the kind of atmosphere he relishes. Skippy's extraordinary imagination transports him to dog school where he enjoys being the star student in all his classes, including French. But the real challenge is in confronting the savage "bull-ito," a tiny terror that spins around the school in a teacup. A banana is the unlikely key to calming the savage beast. Typical of Schachner's style, the book has hilarious songs, wild antics, a smattering of Spanish words, and humor that everyone can appreciate. The zany illustrations add to its exuberant nature. Children will enjoy the amusing details on each page. As with the earlier books, this one makes for a wonderful read-aloud that will have young audiences laughing out loud.—Jasmine L.
