Review #1619 Skippyjon Jones Cirque de Ole by Judy Schachner

Review: #1619
Book: Skippyjon Jones Cirque de Ole
Author: Judy Schachner
Rating: three stars (out of four)
Release date: Oct. 16, 2012
Publisher: Dial
Pages: 32

One thing I especially love about the Skippyjon Jones books is the rhyme and alliteration throughout! Schachner nails it by creating whimsical stories with delightfully amusing sentences and antics. She does a good job of incorporating Spanish words and allowing the context to illustrate their meaning. This story was wacky, as usual, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the wild and colorful pictures. Definitely a must-read for people who’ve enjoyed past Skippyjon Jones books. And I'm sure Cirque de Ole will delight new readers with its zany tales about wildly imaginative kittens.
