But I liked the gist of the story and sometimes just recite them to my daughter when she is sleepy without opening the book.
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!
I had a difficult time picking my favorite out of the three. I liked the first one with Barky, the dog because the friends all helped him have a day out of his pen. He was so unhappy being in there and they all had a wonderful time playing and even had a picnic. 'Kite High' has some absolutely spectacular drawings in it. This adventure takes them in a wooden carriage with a chute high into the sky. The adventure is on when they try to figure out how in the world they will be able to land. Oh my goodness. And the last one, ' Butterfly Trouble' is so unique. In this one, Bluey, a butterfly lands on Oliver's nose. The butterfly has friends that are in trouble and need help. Of course, Oliver rounds up Jumpy and Joey for assistance. Excellent solution and Bluey and the rest of the butterflies are so happy that a party is held. Who wouldn't be happy to be free again?
As I said previously, the drawings are spectacular. I have vision problems and this time I used the reader on the PC which really enhanced the colors and the writing for me. Excellent stories, excellent drawings and wonderful messages for the little ones in your life.
Most highly recommended.
The author, Werner Stejskal, has written 3 fun stories that involve the on-going activities and lives of Oliver the Tomcat and Jumpy the kangaroo. They are lovely characters, trying to be helpful and friendly to everyone the meet. In this set, Oliver and Jumpy help a dog have a little freedom from his daily life behind a fence. They go flying high like a kite and run into a littler bit of difficulty. And, they help butterflies who are being caught and put in a box. When you read these stories, you will discover the rest of each story.
Parents/teachers will enjoy reading these books to their children. The children will have questions about dogs being fenced in, how to fly a kite, and why someone would want to catch butterflies. The illustrations by Maylee Ann Ryes are bright, vivid and colorful. They depict the adventures of Oliver and Jumpy and their friends. There are lessons to be learned, and that will be a good thing to discuss. Note: a complimentary copy of this book was provided to read and review.

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.
