About the Book

Holy guacamole! Meet the #1 New York Times bestselling Skippyjon Jones!

Skippyjon Jones is no ordinary kitten. Oh, no. . . .He's actually El Skippito, a great sword-fighter ready to battle banditos the world over! With a little imagination and a whole lot of fun, this frisky cat dons a mask and cape and takes on a bad bumble-beeto to save the day. And along the way, he'll be sure to steal young reader's hearts, yes indeed-o!

My name is Skippito Friskito. 
I fear not a single bandito. 
My manners are mellow, 
I'm sweet like the Jell-O, 
I get the job done, yes indeed-o.
