I love all of Judy Schachner's books in the Skippyjon series, and this one may be her best yet. She still writes phonetically to get the reader to use the voice inflection intended for the Spanish accent. It it seems she may have toned down that part of her signature trademark just a bit this time around, but not in a bad way. She has also added more "authentic" Spanish words to the story, so your child has a chance to learn some new words as the story progresses. Additionally, the book comes with a CD attached to the back cover that makes it fun to use for read-alongs in the car.Read more ›
There's more Splanglish/Spanish silliness than any of the others. There are also a few treats that parents will find - little sub reference nuggets from the past. Thank you, Judy Schachner. We enjoy her books when children spend the night.
This review is for the Kindle version only. What a mess. I downloaded it to read on an Ipad Mini when we had an unexpectedly long wait in a public place and forgot the usual kid entertainment. The need to roll over each block of text in order to see it large enough to read causes a problem when the enlarged text blocks the next section to be read. It was really frustrating. We couldn't even get through the whole book. Of course since you cant return a kindle book, we are out $9 and Amazon has no feedback about a product makes both the book and the platform look really bad.

The plot of this book is very complicated, and just completely nonsense, and not in a fun way.
Add to that the made-up "Spanglish" words, like "tweens"... Read more
