A picture book for small children.

This is a picture book with bedtime stories including a cat and a kangaroo experiencing many adventures together.

Oliver is an elegant tuxedo cat, 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!

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. 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.

Author Peter Frederick sums it all up!

Here are books created by Werner Stejskal, an author who has a wonderful sense of adaptability into the world of a child. Movements, sentiments, expressions and ideas are being visualised, that enthral and win over the little reader. Plus, his terminology is perfectly matched to the mood of each self-contained story. The author also displays amazing sensitivity and is able to transport even adults back into long-past childhood. All good virtues are being emphasized, like friendship, loyalty, determination and civility, giving the fascinated reader the right signals for spiritual development. The main characters, Oliver and Jumpy, are the masters of a variety of situations that draw the reader into the stories. But one of the main reasons for the success of these children's books is the artwork!



There are three characters which are quite interesting, Joey, Oliver and Jumpy.

As with all of the Oliver and Jumpy books, this book 11 is a book that will keep young and young at heart mesmerized.  The pictures are very colorful which attracts your attention  It is a fun and humorous learning book.
 This book has three short stories.

1.  Crockery Party
will make you and your young ones smile and laugh the entire time. Kitchen items come alive on New Year's  Day and prepare a big meal for Joey, Jumpy and Oliver. Everybody has fun dancing to the music of the pots and pans.

2. Shark Frenzy is about whale watching, when all of a sudden sharks appears.  The characters have to find a way so they don't become lunch for the sharks.  Will they come up with a solution?

3. Small World has a door which is magical and as Oliver enters his entire world changes.  This story has a lot about insects and the adventure Oliver has as he travels through this interesting world of nature.

This book was fun, interesting, a learning tool and something for the entire family.  This is a book that your child can add to the many books about Oliver and Jumpy.

 I received a complimentary copy of OLIVER and JUMPY, Book 11, from the author, Werner Stejskal for my unbiased review of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
