Publisher's Weekly Review

Youngest readers can enjoy the antics of the big-eared cat in Skippyjon Jones: Color Crazy and Skippyjon Jones: Up and Down, both by Judy Schachner. Youngsters follow the feline as he colors a "big blue sun" and a purple puddle in the first book, then demonstrating opposites (e.g., "He zooms back and forth") in the second.
