Werner Stejskal does it again. In Oliver and Jumpy: 40-41 young readers again encounter Oliver the elegant tomcat, and his sidekick, Jumpy the kangaroo, off on more amazing adventures. Oliver and Jumpy help a family of elephants find food, and then Oliver becomes a hero as he kisses a princess and wakes her up. The final story has Sillandia being visited by an alien who wants to learn how to be silly and have fun.
Enchanting little stories with fantastic illustrations, they are perfect for reading to youngsters, or allowing young readers to enjoy all by themselves. Each story offers a subtle lesson that will not be lost on your toddlers. Great bedtime reading.
I give this book four stars.
