Publisher's Summary

The Siamese kitty boy with the gigantico imagination has returned for another loco adventure. In his room for a time-out, Skippyjon Jones lets his imagination take him to a shack where his Chihuahua friends are yipping and yapping and hiding out from the Bad Bobble-ito, who has taken over their doghouse.

How El Skippito chills the Chihuahuas and banishes the Bobble-ito will make more amigos for this endearing and irresistible rascal who made his first appearance in Skippyjon Jones.

    "Be warned. Be VERY warned!"

    These are awful, but, from a preschooler’s perspective, very addictive. We purchased a couple of the Skippyjon Jones stories just to try something new, and because the ratings were so high. My 4-year-old liked them immediately. (Actually, he found In the Doghouse pretty slow and the plot very difficult to follow – but loved “Lost in Spice.”) But there are many things about these books that _I_ really dislike. The gender role stereotyping is atrocious – Skippyjon goes on adventure after adventure, while his 3 sisters spend all of their time helping mama in the kitchen. The multiple fake/made-up Spanish words (mixed in with real Spanish words) made me cringe – but worse is the stereotypical portrayal of Mexico, and Mexican culture and people. (“Frito Bandito” type stereotyping.) Skippyjon is not Mexican – but he pretends to be, spending considerable time talking in a fake Spanish accent.

    All of that is certainly reason enough not to get these books. But there is something I dislike even more: the interactions between Skippyjon and his mama. The disrespectful words and tone they (and Skippyjon in particular) use in speaking to each other have no place in a story intended for preschoolers. (Skippyjon screaming at her “You’re not the boss of me!” is the least of it.) Then, Skippyjon willfully engages in one forbidden behavior after another, completely disregarding anything his mother says.

    I wish I’d done a more thorough job of previewing before my son was exposed to Skippyjon Jones. I really hate these books.

    "Skippyjon Jones is fun for the whole family!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Skippyjon Jones in the Dog-House?

    My children love the longs Skippyjon Jones sings.


    Have you listened to any of Judy Schachner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All of Judy Schachner's performance is A++, like always!

    "Great stories for those 30 minute trips"

    Our kids love to hear these, over and over. We play one or 2 if we're going on 30-45 minute trips, just to break up the monotony.

    Would you listen to Skippyjon Jones in the Dog-House again? Why?

    I would most definately listen to skippy jon jones again because the way the author tells it and now that I have the book. My daughter can follow along too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the banditos. My daughter likes skippy jon jones.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Its a short story that you can listen to in a short amount of time. In a Dr. office, at the dentist, or waiting in a very long line.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very cute book and I would recommend it to any one who has small children. Altho if you have the book..... It makes it much easier to follow along. :)
