oliver and jumpy-31-33
Oliver and Jumpy: 31-33 by Werner Stejskal is another fascinating romp with Oliver the elegant tomcat and his friend, Jumpy the kangaroo. An excellent book to read to youngsters, this one has three new adventures. In the first, the crockery comes alive and has a fancy party for Oliver and his friends. It’s followed by a hair-raising adventure when Oliver and friends go boating and encounter a hungry shark, and finally, Oliver becomes tiny and explores the world of the garden.
Colorful illustrations and captivating stories will keep your young ones wanting to hear more.
Another five-star book from Stejskal.
I have enjoyed Werner Stejskal’s Oliver and Jumpy books. They’re favorites of my grandchildren, and always contain little lessons of value for young people, in addition to being entertaining. I get free copies of these books in exchange for my unbiased reviews.
Stejskal hits another one out of the park with Oliver and Jumpy: 31-33, a series of stories featuring the elegant cat, Oliver, and his kangaroo friend, Jumpy, as they engage in adventures. In the first story; on New Year’s Eve, the crockery and cutlery comes alive and prepares a feast for all the creatures. A cute little story that’s just fun to read. In story 32, the whales come to visit, and everyone enjoys playing them, but sharks also come, and they pose a danger. Using his wits, Oliver saves his friends. In the final story, Oliver becomes very small so that he can explore the small world among the flowers of the garden.
Interesting stories and superb illustrations make these books a hit with early learners and first readers alike.
I give Stejskal five stars for this one.
