Do you like snow? Have you ever played in snow?
This book 7 tells us about Oliver and Jumpy and their friends' activities when it suddenly snows. They make a snowman and participate in snow activities.
What is the best thing about your mother? Do you have brothers and/or sisters.
In book 8, Oliver tells us about life with his four siblings and his mommy and daddy. He tells us about his adventures with his family.
Have you ever seen a baby chick or any baby that is hatched from an egg? Taking care of an egg so it will hatch us a lot of work.
In book 9 we learn all about egging. In Oliver's town the citizens would bring in eggs and everyone would take one home to help it hatch. Oliver tells us about his experiences in hatching his egg.
Parents/teachers will enjoy reading these stories to their children about Oliver and Jumpy. Oliver and Jumpy are fun, happy characters who get into a lot of adventures. The illustrations by Marvin Alonso, are bright and colorful, and give us a clear illustration of Oliver and Jumpy's fun.
Each story has a lesson to be learned, with a lot of laughs along the way. Note: a complimentary copy of this book was provided to read and review.

The stories will captivate your child's attention and they all contain some large words for the children to ponder! A few examples are: "immediately, muffled, cautiously, agreeable and sophisticated".
I am not going into great detail about the stories themselves. Just know that Oliver is indeed an elegant cat, Jumpy is a kangaroo and is Oliver's best friend. These stories have the friends doing different things for fun and in one, Oliver is a kitten. That one, of course, speaks to what a kitten's life is really like. I like this one as it shows the Mum teaching the kittens how to get ready for life. Crossing the road carefully and even keeping an eye on the sky for an eagle! How cute is that?
All in all, a delightful book for the little ones in your life. The author recommends his books for ages 1 - 8. I found the book to be both educational as well as entertaining...
Most highly recommended for the elegant tomcat and the adventures with his friends....
The first features a rare snowstorm in the land of Silandia. As I gaze out my window with the snow really falling, I must admit that the author captures the excitement children feel at the event. For those unfamiliar with the series, Oliver is a rather conceited cat who is best friends with Jumpy, a kangaroo. The mirror reinforces his view. Then the story switches to the fun of sledding and building a snowman. In story 8, Oliver reflects on his kittenhood. Children will enjoy his exploits as well as the incidents of sibling rivalry, but mom manages to take care of him. The third story switches to spring and egging time when all the citizens take responsibility for one bird egg. Oliver gets quite a surprise when he sees what has hatched from his egg!
The stories are original and creative; the illustrations are bold, vivid and expressive. While the stories are promoted as bedtime stories, younger children will need the text summarized and brought down to their level as the amount of text might be a bit too much for the child under age six. Still I recommend the book as a good choice for a parent read aloud or a child who has the patience to sit and interpret the pictures.
I do have to say though, these are imaginative stories with very good artwork. After enduring a big dump of snow, my kids enjoyed the first tale in this book about an unexpected snow day. These are what I call "light" stories, in that they don't hit the reader between the eyes with object lessons. No, they are simply light stories written in a conversational tone, particularly suited for bedtime, I think.
