The author, Werner Stejskal, wrote three short stories in this book.
Story 1. Oliver, is frustrated with a ("Unhappy Dog"). The reason he is frustrated is that the dog barks whenever he goes by a fenced in yard. Oliver gets tired of the barking and stops and asked the dog why he keeps barking. Oliver is told that the little dog has to stay in the yard all the time and he is bored and rather jealous of Oliver. Oliver has his freedom. Oliver felt bad and tried to get help from Jumpy to give the dog some freedom and they plan play times and picnics together. The author wrote a good lesson in this first story that is someone is bothering you, the best thing to do is to take an interest in them. Sometimes once you understand you may be able to help them solve their problems and understand others better
Story 2: The second story ("Kate High") includes Oliver, Jumpy, Joey. They decided to build a wooden carriage with a small sail on it. It's lots of fun when the wind keeps them moving swiftly along. But when the wind picks up, they are soared into the sky and are flying high. Joey almost falls off. When that happens they decide it is time to land the ship but they aren't sure how to do that. A flock of pelicans come to t heir rescue. Oliver asked them to help and they landed on the carriage to overcome the wind in their sails so they are able to land. The author's valuable lesson in this story is to ask for help when you get into a situation you can't handle by yourself.
Story 3: This story is called "Butterfly Trouble. It begins with a beautiful blue butterfly that lands on Oliver's nose and awakens him. A little boy is capturing butterflies with a net and putting them in a box. The butterflies are frightened and the blue butterfly asks Oliver for help. Oliver got Jumpy to help scare the boy into letting the captured butterflies go free. The author's lesson in this story is be willing to come and help someone that is in trouble and needs help.
The author wrote a lesson learning book, three stories with three lessons. The author used wonderful characters that grabs the interest of the reader, whether 5 years old or 50 years old. The names the author gave the characters were charming and interesting. The book keeps the reader's interest to the very end. A wonderful book for children and young at heart with a lesson in each story. The illustrations were just charming and bright.
I was given a complimentary copy of OLIVER AND JUMPY - STORIES 10-12 from the author Werner Stejskal for my view of the book.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
