For some reason, I read Oliver and Jumpy: Stories 22-24 by Werner Stejskal, which I received free in exchange for my review, in August, but neglected to write that review. Probably just old age and senility. Like the other books in this series, this is three neat little stories of Oliver the elegant tom cat and his friend, Jumpy the kangaroo, and the adventures they get up to. Elegantly illustrated, these stories are a hit with my grandchildren, and I’m certain for kids anywhere.
From Oliver’s train journey to his fishing trip with Jumpy, they not only entertain, but contained subtly within them are good life lessons for kids. My apologies for the delayed review, and thanks for another great book. I give it five stars.
