Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Holy guacamole! Skippyjon Jones is 10 years old! <br> <br> He's fearless, he's fun, he's a hero to all!<br> <br> Enjoy a special edition of the book that launched a thousand Chimichangoes with a note from author Judy Schachner about how the character came into being. There's a photo of the real Skippyjon Jones, and even a reversible jacket with El Skippito in his mask-ito on the other side. So hold on to your mice and beans - this book is the fiesta you've been waiting for!

Horn Book Review

Skippyjon is a young, irrepressible Siamese cat with a vivid imagination. His mother sends him to his room to contemplate what being a cat means, but instead he dons the Zorro-like outfit of his alter-ego, Skippito Friskito, and enters his closet for an adventure. The fiesta-colored pictures add zip, but the humor is heavy-handed and the story tedious. From HORN BOOK Spring 2004, (c) Copyright 2010.
