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.

OK. I bought this for my 5 year old granddaughter! Well, after we have listened to it together several times, I find myself listening to it by myself! Don't think I am simplistic either. I have 2 Masters degrees! Skippy John Jones books, all of them, are wonderful and I can listen to them anytime! The narrator is excellent too. Best of all, it is the perfect length...not too short and not too long! Highly recommend all the Skippy John Jones books!
I love the way the story grabs you attention and holds it.
I liked the way the author express the dialoge and has fun reading it.
I can't wait for more audio books of the skippy jon nones books to come out. I'll but those too for my daughter who absolutly went nuts over them. Thank you!!!!!
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.
My 22month old, 34 month old and 4.5 year old love all the skippy jon jones books. The author does a great job incorporating spanish words and catchy songs into a really entertaining story.
My son who is 4 LOVES this series. He will not go to bed without listening to them. It has become our night time ritual. We have snuggle time and giggle. He loves the songs and I love the narrator and how she make the story really come alive.
My grandson loves the Skippyjon Jones stories. We laugh every time even though we have read them a million times. The audio could not be done better and the little chorus of chiguaguas is charming. It zips along with delightful language. This is one book I am so happy to listen to instead of reading.
It is not an easy book to read but Judy Schachner brings a liveliness and a zest to the very imaginative language.
Yes, it was exciting to hear it being read, my son said he liked the voices and the way it brought the book to life.
Anything by Judy Schachner and The Genius Files(adventures of Coke and Pep).
Yes I have, I volunteer in my kids classroom a lot and the most fav book to read is Skippyjon Jones and plus the way I read it makes it awesome. Love all the Skippyjon Jones books. My favorite Skippyjon Jones is Mummy Trouble.
How Skippyjon has to learn his listen.
