Love, Love, Love Skippito Friskito!

I love every other book in this series. They are funny and imaginative and so very clever. Both adults and children love them. But the author lost me at "the princess is hot and the queen is not." Why???? Girls and boys don't need to hear that in yet another place - especially at the age of 6-7, which is the age of the students I read it to. That reference seemed to go right over their heads, but I'm sure it just reinforced everything else they hear. Judy, so disappointed in you.

Is It Any Good?

Judy Schachner's imaginative Siamese cat is back for his eighth adventure, a warm, funny, and welcome addition to the well-done series.. This time the wannabe Chihuahua uses his imagination to paw through his misgivings about boys and fairy tales. Author Judy Schachner's rhyming text and exuberant illustrations make this as irresistible as the rest of the Skippyjon series. Skippy's obstinacy -- and his secret delight with fairy tale conventions -- will strike a chord with young children.
