7. Skippyjon Jones by Judith Byron Schachner

Skippyjon Jones is the tale of a mischievous Siamese cat, which has large ears, making it look like a Chihuahua. The wild imagination of the cat and his adventures make this an interesting read during bedtime.


Skippyjon Jones wakes up every morning with the birds, much to his mother Junebug Jones’ annoyance. Skippyjon loves to bounce on his big boy bed and doing so one day, he sees his reflection in the mirror. Looking at his reflection, Skippyjon decides that he is not a cat but a Chihuahua named Skippito. He puts on a mask and goes off into his world of imagination, where he meets a band of Chihuahuas in a Mexican desert and takes on a bandit named Bumblebeeto.
Lost in his wild imagination, Skippito makes a mess of his room instead of tidying it up. His mama looks at him fondly, sighs and says “What am I going to do with you, Mr. Cocopugs?” That night, Skippyjon bounces on his bed again, instead of going to sleep, to go on another adventure in his creative world.
Skippyjon Jones’ funny songs in a Spanish accent add to the fun factor in the story.
