Werner Stejskal Born in Vienna, Austria, Werner is now living in the paradise of Perth, Australia with his wife, two married children and three grandchildren. He worked many years in the printing industry and later for the United Nations in Vienna. His wife had been a pen-friend, whom Werner visited in Hong Kong and finally got married to. After an eventful life, now retired, he began to write children's stories, had them illustrated through Odesk, narrated them himself for YouTube and finally published the ebooks on most platforms. Eventually there will be 17 books with three stories each in English, before being translated into several other languages. Werner's dream is to see "Oliver and Jumpy" animated as a TV series.

There are lots of fairy tales and bedtime stories around and many of them quite violent. This made Werner decide to write something different. On a flight from Europe to Australia he watched the movie Magic on Belle Island with Morgan Freeman, where Freeman teaches a little girl to have imagination and write her first story. This inspired Werner as well and the first stories with his two characters Oliver, the elegant tomcat, and Jumpy, his kangaroo lady friend, made their appearance. Some very capable illustrators have helped to create this picture book series. Currently seven illustrated ebooks with three stories each are available on most platforms. The first book called "Oliver and Jumpy, Stories 1-3" is available free of charge for a limited time. Please download and review. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The author wrote these cute simple, fun short stories that very age appropriate for young children. Sometimes you will even get some whole hearted laughs from them. Oliver, is a cat, who is the narrator. A high esteemed cat who was quite regal. He thought he was just it. He was a very happy cat who took his friend the kangaroo, named Jumpy on some adventures. Oliver can only eat crunchy cat food due to his cat allergies that he has to birds and mice. He chases them for fun and than politely thanks them for the fun.STORY ONE: MOLLY THE MOLE  In the first story he meets a mole, Molly, when he falls on her while playing with his lady friend, Jumpy. Molly becomes a new friend and offers to share her bugs but Jumpy politely says no.STORY TWO: SAVING DUCKY  The second story is a short adventure about a baby duckling who Oliver and his friend Jumpy have a fun time with their new friends, a big family of ducks. STORY THREE: JUMPY'S SECRET The last story in this book is about Jumpy's Secret. It is a little different. Oliver and Jumpy's relationship is brought out by Oliver. The author wrote the book of three stories in a way in which a child might relate to them. The author brings about some very good lessons in the book, morals, being helpful and polite. These lessons follow throughout the entire book. A wonderful children's book and also for those young at heart. The tales are fun, adventurous, lesson learning and easy for young children to read and understanding.

I was given a complimentary copy of OLIVER AND JUMPY 1-3 from the author Werner Stejskal for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
