Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble

Judith Schachner has done it again! Skippyjon (The Siamese cat who thinks he is a Chihuahua) is back and this time he's not going down that dark desert highway to Mexico. Skippyjon is headed to Egypt. He is still accompanied by Los Chimichangos, his very best Chihuahua amigos, as they go to visit the "Undermundo". Los Chimichangos have heard about the mummitos and how they rest in "peas". Just like Schachner's two previous journeys into Skippyjon's imagination, this adventure is vivid and funny. It has singing (all the songs can be sung to the tune of the Mexican Hat Dance), funny Spaneesh accents, and wonderful illustrations. You can't go wrong with this funny tale. If you haven't read the first two Skippyjon books, check those out as well! - Lakshmi
