School is for dogs, his mama tells him. It’s where they go to get trained. But nothing can stop Skippy.

“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
