This fourth entry in a series that Kirkus Reviews called "ay caramba, mucho fun" will win even more fans for the Siamese cat with oversize ears and an imagination to match.

The review I got from my children was that it was very hard to understand becauce of the accents.
No. Reading it...yes. Listening...no. She is a good author, not a good narrator. She reads WAY to quickly for children. There is no need to rush through life.
I love Skippyjon's imagination. I think he works as a wonderful tool to get kids to use their imaginations.
She is a good author, not a good narrator. She reads WAY to quickly for children. There is no need to rush through life. Children need to process what they hear. Impossible with her reading.
These stories definitely need to be read aloud. The rhyme scheme and alliteration is wonderful, but do it yourself.
I found this book on vacation in Maine and fell in love with it. I bought it for my granddaughter and then found it on Audible.com. We love to listen to it and read along with the book. Schachner is an amazing writer and narrator, we cannot wait for her to write more books. I grew up with Siamese cats and their ears are too big for their heads.
