Today I want to introduce you to a friend of mine. You probably haven’t heard of him before…unless you have small children or are an elementary school teacher. <And you probably wouldn’t call him a friend unless you were a lover of children’s books like me…I’m cool like that.>
His name? Skippyjon Jones.
He is a cat with a big imagination…that thinks he is a Mexican chihuahua. He has grand adventures all while singing catchy little songs and mixing in a few spanish words like “muy” and “frijoles.” (If your interest is peaked or you’ve got chilluns in your house, check out his website…it’s pretty fun! http://www.skippyjonjones.com/ )
Isn’t he cute?!
Does he happen to remind you of anyone else you know? (*Hint, Hint* Look at the ears…)
I’m trying to figure out a Halloween costume for my sweet little Huxley, and immediately Skippyjon Jones came to my mind. A little internet searching produced this jewel of a find…
I know, I know. That’s not a dog costume. But don’t you see the beauty of this find?!
I COULD DRESS UP AS HUXLEY/SKIPPYJON JONES FOR HALLOWEEN!!!
How sweet would that be?!
<Okay, yes. I recognize that it would be pretty freakin’ sweet for me…but probably for no one else besides my other nerdy teacher friends.>
Now I just have to decide if $15 is too much to spend on a big ol’ set of ears.
KEEP CALM & SKIPPYJON JONES ON!
