Holy guacamole! Meet the #1Â New York TimesÂ bestselling Skippyjon Jones!
Skippyjon Jones is no ordinary kitten. Oh, no. . . .He's actually El Skippito, a great sword-fighter ready to battle banditos the world over! With a little imagination and a whole lot of fun, this frisky cat dons a mask and cape and takes on a bad bumble-beeto to save the day. And along the way, he'll be sure to steal young reader's hearts, yes indeed-o!
My name is Skippito Friskito.Â
I fear not a single bandito.Â
My manners are mellow,Â
I'm sweet like the Jell-O,Â
I get the job done, yes indeed-o.Â
*Both feline hero and story are full of beans (more Mexican-jumping than pinto) but ay caramba, mucho fun.âKirkus Reviews, starred review
Buoyant and colorful cartoon illustrations match the exuberant text perfectly.âSchool Library Journal
