On Our Shelves Now
Skippyjon Jones really wants to go to school. School is for dogs, his mama tells him. It's where they go to get trained. But nothing can stop Skippy-once inside his closet, he finds himself on the playground of his imagination, surrounded by dogs of all kinds. He bays with the beagles, learns French with the poodles, and checks out a Chihuahua book from the library. And when a bully starts sending shiver-itos down the spines of the little yippers, Skippy saves the day and earns the biggest gold star.

Praise for Skippyjon Jones, Class Action:
"Typical of Schachner's style, the book has hilarious songs, wild antics, a smattering of Spanish words, and humor that everyone can appreciate . . . As with the earlier books, this one makes for a wonderful read-aloud that will have young audiences laughing out loud."--School Library Journal
"Skippyjon's world is as off-kilter, high-energy, and irreverent as ever."--Publishers Weekly
Children will find much to laugh at in Skippyjon's latest adventure, and although much of the wordplay will go over kids' heads, adults who are asked for repeated readings will appreciate it.--Kirkus Reviews
