KIRKUS REVIEW

That devilish, irrepressible Skippyjon Jones is back in his fourth adventure and digging up big-time trouble—again. Skippyjon loves digging in Mrs. Dolly Doohiggy’s garden because that’s where her bulldog Darwin buries his bones. And bones lead to dinosaurs. “I’m going to be a famous paleontologist!,” Skippyjon says as he disappears into his closet and greets his friends the Chimichango gang. Suddenly they find themselves surrounded by a rhumba line of extinct dinosaurs, and Skippyjon comes face-to-face with a T. Mexito. But dino-dudes are no match for El Skippito Friskito who rules the day, olé. With the familiar acrylic and pen-and-ink illustrations of this goofy pint-size cat who thinks he’s a Chihuahua, large-type sound effects, Spanglish words and silly rhymes, fans will cheer for this loco kitty and his funny-bones escapade. (CD) (Picture book. 5-8)
