School is not for cats—much to the chagrin of Skippyjon Jones. Taking on his Chihuahua persona, Skippito Friskito, he boards the bus (via the closet) bound for Barker Academy. At school, slobbery dogs eat crayons and glue, sleep on desktops, and howl in music class. Like its predecessors, this adventure jumps manically between prose and rhyming verse, all dotted with Spanish (and Spanish-ish) words, as Skippyjon works up the courage to face the school's "woolly bully," who turns out to be a teacup Chihuahua. Skippyjon's world is as off-kilter, high-energy, and irreverent as ever. Audio CD included. Ages 3–up. (July)
