BOOK REVIEW: Oliver and Jumpy, Stories 28-30 (Oliver and Jumpy, the Cat Series, Book 10) by Werner Stejskal


These illustrated cat stories are all about “Oliver and Jumpy”, who are best of friends and experience many adventures together. Oliver is an elegant black tomcat, who is full of himself. As a matter of fact he says: “I love myself!”, quite often. Naughty, isn’t he? But his best friend Jumpy, a kangaroo lady, is aware that he has a soft heart and will always want to help others. The great thing is Jumpy’s pouch, which Oliver loves to ride in! He calls her his kangaroo taxi! These little bedtime stories with their lovely illustrations are great for small kids. A parent can read the text and tell the child in his own words. These animal stories have sufficient text to keep early readers happy and provide some educational value. Depending on your device, there is pop-up text available. Love you all! Meow! Check out the Free INTRODUCTION TO THE SERIES to see how beautiful the illustrations are! Story 28: Letter in a Bottle - Joey wants to free a prisoner. Story 29: Oliver meeting Jumpy - This is how Oliver first met Jumpy! Story 30: Enchanted Forest - Oliver and friends are fighting the witch.

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years, 1 month


This book of short stories was so good, I laughed a lot! 

This book has a couple of short stories in it. One of the stories is about a fox that is supposed to sweep the crumbs off of the floor, but instead swept the crumbs under the rug. His mom saw what he did and made him write an essay on what he could do better. He wrote it and the other animals found out about it.  Another story was about how the two main characters met when they were little. 

My favorite character in this book is the cat and my favorite part is when they saw the kangaroo. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6 to 8.
