Publisher's Summary

The Siamese kitty boy with the gigantico imagination has returned for another loco adventure. In his room for a time-out, Skippyjon Jones lets his imagination take him to a shack where his Chihuahua friends are yipping and yapping and hiding out from the Bad Bobble-ito, who has taken over their doghouse.

How El Skippito chills the Chihuahuas and banishes the Bobble-ito will make more amigos for this endearing and irresistible rascal who made his first appearance in Skippyjon Jones.

    "Great stories for those 30 minute trips"

    Our kids love to hear these, over and over. We play one or 2 if we're going on 30-45 minute trips, just to break up the monotony.

    "Disappointing"
    What did you like best about Skippyjon Jones in the Dog-House? 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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

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


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Read too quickly to process the information. Sometimes you can't even understand her.

    "Be warned. Be VERY warned!"

    These are awful, but, from a preschooler’s perspective, very addictive. We purchased a couple of the Skippyjon Jones stories just to try something new, and because the ratings were so high. My 4-year-old liked them immediately. (Actually, he found In the Doghouse pretty slow and the plot very difficult to follow – but loved “Lost in Spice.”) But there are many things about these books that _I_ really dislike. The gender role stereotyping is atrocious – Skippyjon goes on adventure after adventure, while his 3 sisters spend all of their time helping mama in the kitchen. The multiple fake/made-up Spanish words (mixed in with real Spanish words) made me cringe – but worse is the stereotypical portrayal of Mexico, and Mexican culture and people. (“Frito Bandito” type stereotyping.) Skippyjon is not Mexican – but he pretends to be, spending considerable time talking in a fake Spanish accent.

    All of that is certainly reason enough not to get these books. But there is something I dislike even more: the interactions between Skippyjon and his mama. The disrespectful words and tone they (and Skippyjon in particular) use in speaking to each other have no place in a story intended for preschoolers. (Skippyjon screaming at her “You’re not the boss of me!” is the least of it.) Then, Skippyjon willfully engages in one forbidden behavior after another, completely disregarding anything his mother says.

    I wish I’d done a more thorough job of previewing before my son was exposed to Skippyjon Jones. I really hate these books.
