The second story is about learning to fly. Or al least, learning not to fly too high. Attaching a parachute to their wooden carriage, the three friends were having fun until the wind kicked up and lifted the carriage right off the ground. Calling some pelicans for help, the three friends were rescued just in time. Story three is about a tiny blue butterfly who lands on Oliver's nose while he's trying to take a nap. The blue butterfly begs Oliver to help him rescue his fellow butterflies from a little boy who's catching them and locking them in his bag.
All good fun, and bright, colorful illustrations that illuminate the story. I'm sure kids will love the adventures of Oliver & Jumpy.
In the first story, “Unhappy Dog” a Dog is barking at Oliver and he’s annoyed of the dog. So he asks him what is wrong. The dog is bored and likes to play with Oliver. Jumpy let him out and they have a great time together. They promise to play one day again.
In the second story, “Kite High” Oliver and Jumpy build a wooden carriage with a sail on it. They step on it and the wind, as it picked up the carriage flew high up. And then, well, you better read the story what happen next and how they got saved.
In the third story, “Butterfly Trouble” a butterfly lands on Oliver’s nose. He wakes up and find out that a boy was chasing it to catch it and to put it into a jar. The butterfly pleads Oliver to help him.
All three stories are wonderfully written with fantastic drawings and moral lessons. When annoyed by someone, ask that person what is wrong and they solve it together; when in trouble, ask for help; when another is in trouble willingly help.
The stories in this latest collection are consistent with the previous sets. Artwork is apt to the story being told, and supported the story being read aloud to my younger (pre 5) kids. Please note that English appears to be a second language for Stejskal, and while the writing is good there are some awkward terms of phrase. Parents may have to do some slight rephrasing if reading this aloud.
Overall I do have to say these are delightful and imaginative stories for the younger set!
Story 10: Unhappy Dog - Oliver encounters Barky the dog who is fenced in and sounding mean. Oliver asks why the dog is always disturbing others with his bark, and Barky confesses he is sad because he cannot leave his yard - he must protect it. Oliver brings Jumpy and Joey (Jumpy's little male kangaroo) and together they leave the yard, play ball, have a picnic and Barky is happy - until a car passes them by and Barky and his friends love being out so they plan future days together.
Story 11: Kite High - Oliver and jumpy and Joey build a carriage and float in the water, but a wind comes up and they are airborne. All is well until the wind gets stronger and pelicans alight on the craft causing the flight to be threatened, but the pelicans and fly and guide the craft down to the ground where the craft is broken - but what a great flying adventure while it lasted!
Story 12: Butterfly Trouble - A butterfly lands on Oliver's nose, making him sneeze, but the butterfly asks for Oliver's help. Oliver gathers Jumpy and Joey and together they confront a little boy who is out catching butterflies and putting them in a cage. The trio frees the butterflies, the little scoundrel boy flees and everyone is happy.
More fun, entertaining and beautiful stories that carry important lessons. This continues to be an excellent series from Werner Stejskal. Buy the entire set! Grady Harp, April 15
