Skippyjon Jones is a highly imaginative, mischievous Siamese cat. He goes on all sorts of adventures while being confined to his bedroom during a time-out. His imagination takes him to Old Mexico where he becomes a hero, but will his imagination be too much for his mother? Students can't help but join in as Skippyjon breaks into spontaneous song throughout this great read-aloud.
