Publisher's Summary

El Skippito is back! Avoiding a lecture from Mama Junebug, the kitty boy slips into his closet - and finds himself in ancient Egypt! His doggy pals, Los Chimichangos, want to visit the Under Mundo - the underworld - where mummitos rest in peas. But they need El Skippito's brains and courage to answer the riddle of the Finx and enter the mummy's tomb. Our hero is up to the task, and he's in for another grand and whirlwind adventure.

Entertaining

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! This one is my favorite though!!!

Skippyjon Jones in mumny trouble

Cute story with just enough rhyming to make it interesting for kids. I want to listen to more in the series.

Delightful Fun,Fun,Fun!

I have twin boys that were 6yrs. old when they first got into these books and they loved it!
This is a fun mini adventure with lots of laughs and giggles along the way.
I though the Narrator was great and read it much better than I ever could.
Defiantly a must for an adventurous child!

Fun Story!

What made the experience of listening to Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble the most enjoyable?

My family loves this story! Having the story read by the author herself is a real treat as well. We have listened to the adventures that Skippyjon Jones has imagined, over and over through this story as well as others. We enjoy all the books and would recommend them to anyone!

LOVED THIS BOOK

What did you love best about Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble?

In the end it was his sisters wrapping him up in toilet paper.<br/>My daughters love when I read to them. I enjoyed Skippyjon Jones books we own 4. I also downloaded on I Books and read along with the audio.

When Skippyjon sings the girls like to clap

Which character – as performed by Judy Schachner – was your favorite?

Skippito Friskito of course. I purchased the stuffed animal and hand puppet.

I love Mama JuneBug Jones always reassuring her Skippyjon

Disappointing

What did you like best about Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble? What did you like least?

Shachner's stories are wonderful. She is a great writer, but not necessarily a skilled narrator...at least not for children. She reads WAY too quickly. I can't even understand her or the chorus of Los Chimichangos most of the time. A children's narrator should know more about how to read to children. Speaking this quickly to children, who are just now learning the language, can lead to speech disfluencies, including stuttering.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble?

I love Skippyjon's imagination. I think he works as a wonderful tool to get kids to use their imaginations.

Was Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble worth the listening time?

Worth reading, not hearing.

Any additional comments?

These stories definitely need to be read aloud. The rhyme scheme and alliteration is wonderful, but do it yourself.

Listen with the book

We listen to books in the car so this is not a great choice to listen without the book. The story really needs the pictures if your child is to follow it, so it doesn't work for us.
