Gatito Daredevil-ito!: Skippyjon Jones and the Circe de Ole' by Judy Schachner
I'M PHYSICALLY FIT.
EVERY PART. EVERY BIT.
JUST RIGHT FOR A CIRCUS POOCH-ITO.
Circus Berzekus! When her risk-taking kitty boy takes to the heights, Mama Junebug Jones is as worried as a worm in a wading pool and orders Skippy to timeout in his room. But Skippyjon Jones, the Siamese kitty who fancies himself a Chihuahua, vaults from his highwire walk on the telephone wires into his closet-ito, where he travels again to the land of the Chimchanga Gang, this time in the circus-ito!
Skippyjon, never lacking in derring-do, decides he has the right stuff to challenge superstar Putzi Shtrungleboot, commandeering his costume and mustache-ito and "pumping up" his musculos in preparation for his performance on the flying trapeze and highwire. But Putzi has his own trick under his tights, and the performing pooch-ito finds himself fired from the circus cannon, and the furry, feline acrobat-ito soars out of the tent on a trajectory that takes him back home again.
Judy Schachner's latest story of her Spanglish-spouting Siamese is back in Skippyjon Jones Cirque de Ole (Dial Books, 2012). Skippito and his Chi-wu-lu imaginary friends are as cheeky as ever in his seventh closet Chihuahua fantasy adventure, and as an added attraction, Schachner adds her own reading of this newest sequel in an included CD. (See the book's perky poochito preview here.)
For double the fur-raising adventures, pair this one with Skippyjon's feline predecessor, Mary Calhoun's beloved Siamese hero, High-Wire Henry.
