Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble
Dutton Children’s Books, 2006
While this book isn’t specifically a Halloween book, it could be read during this season of mummies and the undead!!
From the inside front cover: “Skippyjon Jones can’t stop his overactive imagination. This time it takes him to ancient Egypt. Who should be waiting for him there but his old Chihuahua chums? They want to visit the Under Mundo—the underworld—where mummitos “rest in peas.” But they need the brains and bravery of El Skippito, Skippyjon’s Zorro-like alter ego, to answer the Finx’s riddle and enter the old, moldy tomb of the mummy. Sounds like big trouble. But El Skippito gets the job done, yes, indeed-o. Rhymes and riddles, rollicking wordplay, and mucho fun await all the readers who have fallen in love with the kitty with giganticoears and an even bigger heart. ¡Vámonos!
I love Skippyjon Jones!! How could I not love a Siamese boy kitty who thinks he is a Chihuahua and has an imagination to rival George Lucas and Steven Spielberg?! His adventures ALWAYS make me laugh out loud!!! Every. Single. Time! If you’ve never read Skippyjon, I hope you do and get as much laughter and joy as I do. There’s no more to be said to the above synopsis – except to say, please read Skippyjon Jones.
