Meet SkippyjonJones & Judy Schachner!

AY CARAMBA! This is MUCHO fun!!!

is a Siamese kittenboy who can't resign himself to being an ordinary cat. With ears too big for his head he imagines himself to be a Chihuahua, takes on the superhero persona of the great Spanish sword fighter Skippito, and has the adventure of his life rescuing his pals from a giant Bumblebeeto Bandito. Zany, wild, and over-the-top, this utterly original book truly begs to be read aloud.

Don't believe what the blurbs say about this book being just for the preschool/elementary set. I read it to my teenagers (that's what you get when you have a librarian for a Mother) and they thought it was a blast!

Author Judy Schachner lives in Pennsylvania and has several more books based on this character of a character! Check out her Skippito website here: SkippyjonJones.com.

And you can listen to her presentation at the 2007 National Book Fesitval in Washington, D.C. here: Judy Schachner: BookFest '07.
