The author, Werner Stejskal, has written a marvelous fun series of the adventures of Oliver and Jumpy. This series contains 1-3 stories. Oliver is a black tom cat with a white top hat. Oliver tells us he loves himself, and that is good. He knows who he is and is proud of himself. His best friend is Jumpy a kangaroo. She takes Oliver for rides in her kangaroo pouch, everyday. They have many adventures, and run into all sorts of characters and animals on their daily adventures. Parents/teachers will have such a good time reading this book to their children. The children will enjoy the adventures of Oliver and Jumpy. They will have many questions about the animals Oliver and Jumpy meet along the way. The illustrations, by Marvin Alonso, are colorful and vibrant depicting all the joys and sorrows of Oliver and Jumpy.
You can see in Oliver's eyes, the mischief he intends, and Jumpy's pouch opens for us to look inside.
I really liked this series of books. The characters, Oliver and Jumpy, are positive and fun, and this is an excellent series for children.

The best thing about these three short stories, is that they teach kids how to deal with situations that could get ugly if handled wrong, and although I don't think pouring water on a smoker would be the best way to handle that particular situation, it was funny. That's what great about book, they're like dreams where we can try out new situations to see the consequences of our actions before we do something we'll regret.
Oliver is even forced to deal with his friend Jumpy's new baby which can allow a child to learn about sharing someone's attention, and realizing that things change, and that change is not necessarily something to be afraid of.
The illustrations are bright and cheerful which is something I always look for in a children's book, along with a strong moral component.
In this one again three different places he managed to get. The pictures that go with the story are bright and very good.
The main thing about this book and others will give you so much time with your child or children, as you know kids need this one on one time and with the way the world is, it just doesn't happen and it is so sad. I am 76 and I was introduced to these books and there are twenty different ones to choice from, I have no kids to read them to but I am working my way threw all of them so that I can write reviews about each one to be able to encourage parents to do this and have that extra time at night to read to the child or children, can you imagine what happy dreams those kids are going to have when they fall asleep. Then in the morning they will wake up thinking my Mom or Dad or both read to me before I went to sleep last night, how they must love me for doing this,
Now before I stop, I would like to ask you to take another minute or two drop a message to the author letting him know how much you enjoyed being able to spend this time with you child. Also let your friends know that you talk to about this series of books.
The illustrations are probably the best part of the Oliver and Jumpy book. Most of the images are well drawn and colorful.
Overall, the stories are cute and do try to teach good manners, morals or ethics.
Recommend as a bedtime story book as the book is for written for adults to read to their children.
Agreed to read and review this story. Found introduction to be full of color and a place where a child's imagination could grow.
Very colorful illustrated children's book with Oliver and Jumpy pairing up to bring another good children's story to life.
The first one is about Molly the Mole. Besides giving you information about the animals there are educational facts included. They stop by to visit with the mole and have some food.
This next one is my favorite. Next story is about Davy the duckling. Love how all the animals, new and old come together to help.
Third story I felt was a bit much for young children as it deals with birth of an animal. Although it doesn't go into too much detail the fact is the baby is born which I feel would bring up more questions than answers.
