Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Here is the book that launched a thousand chimichangoes - the first in the best-selling series about the rambunctious Skippyjon Jones, the Siamese kitty boy with the overactive imagination. He would rather be El Skippito, the great sword fighter, who can do anything. Like saving a roving band of Mexican Chihuahuas from a humongous bumblebeeto that is tormenting them.<br> <br> Join Skippyjon Jones on his first great adventure. He's fearless, he's fun, he gets the job done - yes, indeed-o.

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.
