OLIVER & JUMPY – Stories 7-9 Book Review

Stories 7-9
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. Depending on your device, there is popup text (at Amazon) or audio available. Several talented illustrators are essential to bring these children’s stories to you in quick succession. Love you all! Meow!

Story 7: Winterland
Fun in the snow..
These stories are a few minutes read each and are perfect for bedtime. I go so far as to read one story per day to my son. Since he enjoys them so much he agrees to be patient and read them one at a time.

The first story is about having fun in the winter land and snow, how one fine morning Oliver wakes up to find Sillianda covered with snow.

Magic mirrors, pelican delivery express and snowman’s all make this a amusing read. It offers insight into the world of snow for kids especially those who have not seen snow! An complete snow experience with lots of new words to read and learn.

Story 8: Baby Oliver
Yes, Oliver has been a baby too!

In the second tale about babies Oliver shares his childhood experiences of him being a naughty baby and learning with his mother. This story shares many important lessons for kids. Dangers and trouble Oliver lands into and manages to avoid.  An perfect story to teach the children about safety.
Loved these lines…” Kittens we are five, playful and alive.
Always watched by mum, to us she is sun.”

Story 9: Egging
Watch what hatches from a big egg.
This story with a strange, large egg was my son’s favorite! Had to read it a couple of times as the surprise of the egging time and finally how the baby is handled was so entertaining. The food surprise and Oliver’s antics make this series of books good to read.

The pictures are very beautiful and add so much to these stories. The bright colors make a good talking point with my son who sees them and wants to know so much more. I find that sometimes too many long sentences are used by the author which is difficult to grasp by the kids.  But overall I loved the book and will be sharing more stories with my little one. 
A series that entertains and teaches the little ones.

(I received a copy of the book from the author for a fair, unbiased review. )

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.
