From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–The Siamese cat from Skippyjon Jones (Dutton, 2003) that thinks he's a Chihuahua returns in another adventure. Sent to his room by his mother for drawing on the walls, the feline puts on a mask and cape and then sings in a Spanish accent: "Oh, my name is Skippito Friskito/And I heard from a leetle birdito/That the doggies have fled/From the gobbling head/Who goes by the name Bobble-ito!" He then boards his skateboard and rolls into his closet, eventually arriving at a shack where he finds his Chihuahua friends. They explain that their home has been invaded ("Yesterday morning we left the house to buy some beans...when we returned, a Bobble-ito was in la casa perrito") and ask for his help. He solves the problem by grabbing the intruder and stuffing it into his pants. At story's end, Mama checks on Skippyjon and finds him wrapped in a blanket and talking to his sister's bobblehead doll. Schachner's ink-and-acrylic illustrations create the madcap surrealistic world Skippyjon inhabits, but the narrative offers little more than bad verse, confused plotting, and Taco Bell-style expressions–a fact underscored by the accompanying CD of the author reading her two Skippyjon tales. For rhyming dog stories, skip this doggerel and stay with the antics of Lynley Dodd's "Hairy Maclary" books (Tricycle).– Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME
