    Oliver and Jumpy are back with new stories. In story seven, it snows and Oliver and his friends go out to play. They make a snowman almost like Frosty. Story eight, we learn about Oliver as a kitten. His Mum taught Oliver all he'd need to know to be on his own. The last story is about a tradition they have. Everyone is given a number and those who lay eggs bring them to the town square. Each egg has a number that matches the one the town people have. What happens next? You'll have to get the book to find out. These short and sweet stories are perfect for nap time or bedtime. Each one engages your child's imagination and attention. I love these uplifting stories. I really feel each child should have them in their library. The illustrations are simply beautiful. Together, the stories and their illustrations make these books more fun than any I've read in awhile.I didn't find any issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because they are simply wonderful stories. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

    Werner Stejskal's Oliver and Jumpy is a picture book series geared towards preschool and primary readers. For this review, I read Stories 7-9.Oliver, the main character, is a cat who lives in Sillandia, where one "can never be sure of anything!" (Loc 8 of 41). Illustrated by Marvin Alonso in Stories 7 and 8 and by Mayeee Ann Reyes in Story 9, Oliver brings to mind Tom of Tom and Jerry, only with a more agreeable personality.His friend Jumpy, a kangaroo, appears only in Story 7, and aids Oliver in the building of a snowman on an unusual day in Sillandia when it snows.The vivid colors used in the illustrations is pleasing as well as the plot in Story 7. My problem was with the question asked of the young reader, "Are you jealous?" (Loc 20 of 41) by the narrator Oliver at the end of Story 7. With the negative connotation associated with the term "jealous," I think the question would have been better served eliminated entirely for in the next sentence, "I hope you will soon be able to race down a slope too and feel the cold" (Loc 21 of 41), the positive tone of the picture book reappears and concludes the reading.Again, in Story 8, perhaps the term "chasing" would have been a better choice versus "stalking" as in Loc 23 of 41 considering the reader target audience of preschoolers and primary children.The lessons Oliver learns from his Mum in Story 8 are essential as in looking both ways before crossing and educational as in watching the sky for eagles as a small animal.In Story 8, the English teacher within cringed at the grammatical error, "Do you ever getting muddy?" (Loc 30 of 41).As for Story 9: Egging, I think the moral of the story was intended to support the idea of loving one another unconditionally regardless of appearance as Oliver ends up hatching a dinosaur, but I think this message is lost in the concluding sentence of the story, "Maybe you will get lucky and get a weird creature too!" (Loc 40 of 41).At the conclusion of the three stories, Mr. Stejskal invites story suggestions from readers along with an e-mail address which would be an authentic way to further encourage a child's imagination and love of reading.

    "More Enjoyable Stories from the Oliver & Jumpy Series"I love these entrancing stories of Oliver, the cool cat, and Jumpy, the sweet kangaroo friend and her youngster, Joey. "Winterland" starts with Oliver sleeping on a nice warm kitty bed. He dreams of being cold ... really cold, so he wakes. He usually has a Pelican deliver breakfast, but the bird hasn't arrived. Why? Because Oliver's tree house is covered with snow! Time for a Super Fun Day! "Baby Oliver" is a once-upon-a-time tale when Oliver was a baby! He always felt warm and cozy with is mom. Every day was play time for all his brother and sister kittens. Oliver likes to scare his siblings and then wrestle with them. Mom always taught them how to stay safe like when crossing a street. She believes it is better to be a fat cat rather than a flat cat! But soon, when confronted with a snake, Oliver learns how it feels to be scared! "Egging" in springtime and animals and birds babies. Bird mothers are unique, they lay eggs in a nest and then select one egg and takes it to the town square. Numbers are painted on each egg, people buy tickets to win one egg. The eggs are not eaten but kept warm till they hatch. Oliver's egg is number 32 and very, very large. What will the baby turn out to be?!! I love these great children stories. They get better and better. The illustrations are magnificent, friendly, and colorful. The tales themselves are very well written; parents and children will enjoy these stories. They are so much fun to read.

    I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.Oliver is a most prestigious cat who walks around with a top hat. His best friend is Jumpy the kangaroo. They have many adventures together. In the first story "Witerland", we find Oliver waiting for his breakfast, which always arrives by the Pelican Delivery Service. He soon realizes they can't fly because of the beautiful snow outside. Oliver gets dressed for the snowy outdoors and joins his friend Jumpy for a fun day in the snow.In the Second story "Baby Oliver" we learn about Oliver when he was a baby. He loved stalking his sibligs for fun. He always listened to the important lessons his mother taught himThe final story was called "Egging". This was a cute story. At Eggng time each year all of the animals purchase a ticket with a numbher on it. The number tells them which bird egg, donated by a bird mother, they will received. They take their egg home and sit on it until it hatches. Then, they return the birds to their parents.These books teach valuable lessons such as listening to your parens, sharing your time with your friends and helping others. I am always pleased when this author has a new book out and asks me to review them. I am always looking for great books for my grandchildren, and these are great books.

    "Oliver and Jumpy, Stories 7-9" by Werner Stejskal is a continuation of the 'Oliver and Jumpy' series. It is a thoroughly enjoyable Children's story. Perfect for 7 & 8 year old's to read alone, or for parents to read to their younger children. Perfect for the bedtime story and short enough to read all three if your child wants just one more story.Story 7: Winterland deals exactly with what it sounds like....a winter wonderland. It is very rare to snow in town of Sillandia. When it does the schools close and everyone gets out and enjoys being in the snow.Story 8: Baby Oliver talks about Oliver and his family. We see his parents and siblings, and how it was for him to live with his siblings. Oliver as a kitten learning about his reflection in the lake and consequences for getting dirty and having to take a bath in the lake.Story 9: Egging has the town of Sillandia celebrating Spring and the birth of baby animals. Each of the residents enter a raffle to get an egg with a number on it. They then take it home to care for till the egg hatches and is given back to the parents. Oliver's egg is a baby Dinosaur. Very fast reads for parents and will keep children able to read occupied for a little while.

    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.

    Great and playful children's storiesStory 7, winterland, story 8, Baby Oliver, story 9, egging. Each story was a masterpiece of children's stories. The writing and greatness of the stories will enchant children, especially those who follow Oliver and Jumpy. In Winterland, Oliver is the gentleman cat who does not like the cold, but he dresses warm enough to play with his friends in the vast winter wonderland of building a snowman. In Baby Oliver, Oliver shares the story of his "kittenhood" and the great love he had for his mum. Egging time is the spring when all the animals have their babies, however, in this country, the animals add their eggs to the town square, and everyone takes an anonymous egg home. Each story is pleasant, creative and truly fun.

    As with all these stories, the images dominate the pages with bright colors and nice secrets for children to see. While a cat lies dreaming on a comfortable bed, observant children will excitedly predict what he’s dreaming about. And yes, there on the next page is the dream. (Observant adults might notice when images have been cropped and enlarged, but that’s a minor issue.)Story 8 introduces readers to Oliver as a baby. “Yes, I have been a baby once too,” the narrator announces, as his mum licks him tenderly in the picture. Lessons in road safety and playtime safety ensue. But best of all is number nine with its delightful baby surprise.Disclosure: It was free so I read it.

    Challenges for OliverOliver, the elegant gentleman cat, recounts three adventures. He takes the young reader on a fun-filled day of playing in the snow and building a snowman. The next story is a recounting of how he got to play with his siblings during his kitten hood. In the final story Oliver tells the young reader a out hatching time for those animals who lay eggs. All in all, a very interesting trio of stories sure to capture the attention of readers young and old. Illustrations by Matt Alfonso bring to life author Werner Stekjal's words. Highly recommended.

    I love Oliver. A tuxedo cat with a top hat is just irresistible especially one as friendly and nice as Oliver. These stories are fun for kids, with good, positive messages and morals and engage young readers to answer questions or to participate in the story. The illustrations really make them come alive. The stories are whimsical, fun and highly enjoyable.I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    If your children love books about adventure, these are the stories for them. The illustrations are engaging and colorful. The stories are fun, full of adventure, and adorable! Children of all ages would have fun reading these stories or having them read to them. The main character is a tomcat who loves to recount adventures that he has previously went on with his friends, including a kangaroo and her joey. Any child full of adventure and imagination would love these stories.

    Very nice set of stories for children (I'd say age 2-4?), educational, funny.Even though it said that those are stories #7-9, they definitely can be read as stand alone. I'd say they are pretty thought - provoking and I can imagine they can start a pretty good discussion between parent and child on fun activities, safety rules, etc.Pictures are very colorful, pleasant to look at :) Animals really cute. Good book!

    Oliver and Jumpy Series Books 7-9 by Werner StejskalThis is part of a series of books about Oliver a sohisticated cat and his friend Jumpy. These adorable characters will certainly entertain a youngster. The colorful graphics will even entertain a child that is being read to because he has not learned to read .In book 7 Winterland and Fun in the Snow Oliver and his friend Jumpy enjoy a day of fun in the snow. If you are fortunate enough to remember a day when you had no school because of that snowstorm, you will relate to the fun that the characters have building a snowman and sleigh "surfboard" riding in the snow. You can remember yourself tossing those snowballs. This book is a great one for the young reader as well as those enjoying picture books and being read to.In book 8 Baby OliverBaby Oliver lays with is siblings, learns safety such as how to safely cross a stree. he learns to be aware of predators and other things that could bring himharm. He learns ew things like what a reflection is. He plays and learns that even when he has a slip up and gets reprimanded his Mum will still be willing snuggle and let him now he is loved and then read him a bedtime story.In book 9 EggingIn the town where Oliver lives each Spring they all recieve an egg. He learns that it takes time , patience and a lot of care to keep that egg safe and warm. When it hatches he learns that no matter what it turns out to be, It takes a lot of time, care and patience to nurture that little being. It teaches him a love for life even if it is not just like you.I read each of the three and was totally impressed with how well they were done. I then read them again with an autistic 4 year old. He cannot read them on his own yet. With each one he became very engrossed and we would stop and he would talk on about Oliver and add thngs to the story. Adding scenarios and conversations. Reading to him when he enjoys a book always get that kind of reaction. At that point the seven year old (these are my great grandsons) wanted to read them also. We began again. This time he helped read them. He also discussed the stories and added things that he does. For example, liking to build snowpeople and snowball fights, raising a pet and caring for them because "they need him to care for them". How he loves to snuggle with his GG at his bedtime because he knows he is loved. Just before he went to sleep tonight, he asked me if there were moore of the books about Oliver and Jumpy. I told him there were a few more and he asked me if we could get them. I guess that is on my shopping list.I am giving this series a 5 star review. They are well written anda great addition to the boys library. I got them both tablets for Christmas and they have the Kindle app. This is a myust have for pre-readers and begining readers.

    Story 7: WinterlandFun 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 OliverYes, 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: EggingWatch 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. )

    “Throw a snowball at his hat, off it goes, just like that!”Story 7: WinterlandSillandia gets very few snow days, so when Oliver wakes up one day to see the white stuff all over he knows he is in for a Fun Day! Soon Jumpy and Joey are helping Oliver build a snowman and using surfboards to slide down the hills. We also get a chance to meet Oliver’s personal magic mirror. Story 8: Baby OliverOliver tells us the story of when he was a baby and what wonderful parents he had. He was taught many lessons from his mum and his dad liked to play with him, sometimes he got dirty and had to take a water bath. That is no fun for cats! This story is great for all those that wonder what it was like for Oliver when he was a kitten. Story 9: EggingEgging Time is when everyone receives and egg to take care of until it hatches. Then they bring it back to the real parents and have to say goodbye. This is a good lesson on community and helping out whenever you can. Oliver gets a very special egg and has a few challenges in taking the proper care of the baby that comes out. This is a fun story and my favorite of this batch.All of the stories were well done and the illustrations as beautiful as ever. The first two were done by Marvin Alonso and the last was done by Maycee Ann Reyes. I was given this series as a gift from the author to write honest reviews.Great stories in a great series. When can we expect to see them on television? Soon I hope!

    My kids enjoyed Stories 7-9 about Oliver and his friend, Jumpy. The “Winterland” story was fun, it’s how I envision kids to spend a day with snow. Oliver and his friends enjoyed this rare snow day by building a snowman. On “Baby Oliver” I actually enjoyed how Oliver poked fun with his mom by getting all dirty with mud and still gets snuggled by his mom after she washes him. Oh and that mirror talk was funny, too, according to my eldest. And our favorite in the book is the “Egging” story! My kids adored Dinella, the “baby” that was hatched from Oliver’s egg which he got on Egging Day. Dinella was really funny and adorable!Mr. Stejskal is a great storyteller, even my kids agree with me. Gone are the days when my boys thought Mickey Mouse was cool, now they prefer other animal characters better. Oliver and Jumpy would make a great team with my little rascals, for that I am sure.

    Oliver is an elegant tomcat. His best friend is Jumpy, a kangaroo. The two of them get up to some amazing adventures that will delight young readers. In Werner Stejskal’s Oliver and Jumpy: Stories 7 – 9, our two heroes have fun in the snow among other adventures.I received a free copy of Stejskal’s book for review, and as usual was enthralled by the simple, yet educational stories contained therein. The illustrations are first rate, and kids can learn life lessons while they enjoy having the stories read to them, or for those who can read, read themselves.

    I like how the author brings out useful information (like the activities during snowing and how the mother of the kittens takes care of her litter) for the kids in the book with those pretty illustrations. This makes the kids learn with great interest.Disclaimer: A copy of this eBook is given by the author in exchange of honest review.
