Story and Illustrations by Judy Schachner
Skippyjon Jones is a Siamese cat who does what he wants to do, particularly if a dog would do that same activity. This annoys his mama a lot, because he is a Siamese cat, therefore he should act like a Siamese cat and be proud of it. Whenever Skippyjon gets sent to his room to think about himself, he bounces on his bed and looks at himself in the mirror. When he sees himself in the mirror, he doesn’t see a Siamese cat, he sees a Chihuahua. He then goes and puts on a costume and disappears off to a different land, where his assistance is needed. Follow Skippyjon to see what trouble he gets into on this journey.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. The story is funny and keeps you immersed, and the illustrations add a deeper depth to the story. As a bonus, you learn some Spanish from reading.
