Skippyjon Jones … or is it El Skippito?!

Ashayla with her Skippyjon Jones cat and wearing El Skippito's cape and mask.

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.


Have you met this fellow called Skippyjon Jones? He is no ordinary kitten, not at all. His super imagination frequently turns him into El Skippito, a great sword-fighter who is ready to battle banditos everywhere! You can read about these adventures and meet this brave cat in all the Skippyjon Jones books by Judy Schachner.

Rowan and her Mom are excited to get started on their art project.



Celebrating children’s books with kids is one of our favorite things to do at the library.  This month we teamed up with the Cook Arts Center to create some fantastical cats that would make Skippjon Jones proud!

Moms and Dads joined in with all the creative fun.

Kaden enjoyed every minute of creating his cool cat…

Kierstyn, Addison and their Mom show their cat creations…


Thanks to the new iPods granted us by the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation, authentic Mexican music played during the Skippyjon Jones art project.
