Oliver & Jumpy Introduction to the
Series – The Cat Series)
These illustrated cat stories are all about “Oliver and Jumpy”, who are best of friends and experience many adventures together. Oliver is an elegant black tomcat, who is full of himself. As a matter of fact he says: “I love myself!” quite often. Naughty, isn’t he? But his best friend Jumpy, a kangaroo lady, is aware that it is only a front!
Oliver has a soft heart and will always want to help others. The great thing is Jumpy’s pouch, which Oliver loves to ride in! He calls her his kangaroo taxi! These little bedtime stories with their lovely illustrations are great for small kids. A parent can read the text and tell the child in his own words. These animal stories have sufficient text to keep early readers happy and provide some educational value.
The introduction of Oliver & Jumpy is so cute that my son egged me on to pick more stories and now we are fans of Oliver and Sillianda. We love visiting this story land again and again. This is the introduction to the series and sets the pace for all the fun ahead.
A glimpse into the future adventures and delightful illustrations on each page make for a fun, easy to read book for children and parents alike. Bright, colorful pictures attract our attention and helps my 6 year old understand the story better. Simple sentences give a hint about what is in store for Oliver and his friends. We are looking forward to go with Oliver & Jumpy.
My son and I have already read a few of the stories from the series and will keep you posted with our reviews.This Cat has a smart personality and smarter attitude.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Vienna, Austria, I am now living in the paradise of Perth, Australia with my wife, two married children and three grandchildren. I worked many years in the printing industry and later for the United Nations in Vienna. My wife had been a pen-friend, whom I visited in Hong Kong and finally got married to. After an eventful life, finally retired, I began to write children’s stories, had them illustrated through Odesk, narrated them myself for YouTube and finally published the ebooks on most platforms. I will publish 17 books with three stories each in English, before translating into several other languages. My dream is to see “Oliver and Jumpy” animated as a TV series.
