"Beautiful, Charming Stories for Young Children"

This children's story uses the special Kindle Text Pop-Up feature. Double tapping the text will expand the dialogue for easy reading. The stories here of Oliver the handsome tomcat, Jumpy, the mama kangaroo, and Joey, her baby, are fun filled adventures. They include "Monkey Island," "Fairy Castle," and "Treasure Hunt" which I found yummy! The characters are lots of fun as depicted in colorful illustrations. In "Monkey Island" Joey is growing to th

I highly recommend the OLIVER AND JUMPY series. These collections, containing 3 stories each, are enjoyable and entertaining, teaching important lessons such as friendship, responsibility, caring. They're good for both young readers and younger "read-to-me" kids, and will be welcomed by parents and grandparents, and teachers of early education and early reading.

This book is part of a series detailing the adventures of a cat named Oliver and his good friend, Jumpy the Kangaroo. The author does not divide his stories in books for volumes but instead gives numbers to them. While the series is targeted for children ages one through eight, there is a great deal of text so parents or teachers would need to summarize or retell the stories to a child younger than school-age.

This delightful storybook contains three stories about Oliver the cat and his kangaroo friends, Jumpy and Joey.

In the first story, the three friends take a trip to Monkey Island. It's all fun and games until some monkeys kidnap baby Joey, and Oliver has to devise a way to get him back.

The second story takes the trio cave exploring with Milly the mole. The cave is actually the entrance to fairy land, which includes a magnificent palace of silvery glass. The fairy queen welcomes them, and throws a

Stories 1-3 of Werner Stejskal’s Oliver and Jumpy stories end with the news that Jumpy is carrying a joey in her pouch. Little Joey is already peeking “over the edge of his mummy’s pouch” as story 4 begins. After packing “nappies, which are the most important item, a bottle, a dummy,” and other assorted needs, the friends take a trip to monkey island on the good ship hippopotamus. “Never drink sea water!” is a wise lesson, quickly learned, with nicely expressive illustrations. But children will ...more

I have many friends with grandchildren and great-grandchildren and I like to find new and different children's books to recommend. Let me be perfectly clear - I highly recommend the Oliver and Jumpy stories.

Oliver is an elegant tuxedo cat and Jumpy is a kangaroo. They are best friends. Joey is Jumpy's baby kangaroo.

In this, the third book of the series, there are three stories to capture the imagination of young readers. What fascinated me was the detail of the illustrations. They are fantastic

This is a very cute , very bright fully illustrated children short stories. We have Oliver who is a cat and Jumpy who is a kangaroo.

They go on many adventures together and each one tells of a new story to learn by. In the first story there is a trip and it involves monkeys who are very mischievous and the next story is a fairytale.

Quite a fun read for this old man(guess I still have that little child buried inside).

Oliver is a cat and Jumpy is his friend a Kangaroo. They are joined with her baby Joey for these adventures. They visit all sorts of intersting places in the three stories collected here: Monkey Island, the land of the Water Fairies, and a treasure hunt where they pass through such wonders as the Candy Forest, the Chocolate River, and a mountain od ice cream.

Nice artwork with bright colors that small kids will

Oliver and Jumpy are cute adventure stories for children from very young to middle school. The illustrations are beautiful and colorful and will keep young children engaged as they look at each page. Older children who read can enjoy the story by reading them by themselves. These stories will engage children's imagination and keep them entranced as the story unfolds. With Oliver and Jumpy anything is possible in their stories from fantasy to adventure.

I haven't read a kids book in a while, but when Werner Stejskal alerted me that this one was free at the moment, I decided why not.

The Oliver and Jumpy series is about Oliver the cat and Jumpy the Kangaroo's adventures, told in Oliver's voice. It's a fun read, full of pictures, with this collection taking you to Monkey Island, Fairy Castle and on a Treasure Hunt. They're light-hearted and would probably make a great read for younger kids.
Oliver & Jumpy, Stories 4 ~ 6 are fantasy stories written to appeal to upper elementary age students. The illustrations are clear and full of beautiful colors but the printed area has very small print, which I found hard to read. I can picture this book as a printed book with larger print and be far more appealing to young readers. The fantasy stories were age appropriate for the targeted audience.

In this series of "Oliver and Jumpy, Stories 4-6" by Werner Stejskal we have: Story 4 - Monkey Island, Story 5 - Fairy Castle, Story 6 - Treasure hunt. Each story can be read separately, as a short bedtime story, or all in the same night. Parents are able to read to their smaller children and children up to age 9 will enjoy it too. The individual stories give a small lesson about sharing, not being afraid to try new things, and not procrastinating. Very enjoyable.

Oliver and Jumpy are back, this time, Jumpy's son, Joey had grown up and proved to be quite the adventurer. Here's what my kids and I thought of Stories 4-6.

Story 4
Monkey Island

Joey, Jumpy's son is growing up so fast and Oliver is excited to spend the day with him and his bestfriend Jumpy. Soon they went on a trip to Monkey Island and rode on a big lady hippopotamus. They traveled the seas and saw dolphins and Oliver, the ever curious cat, drank seawater and was shocked to learn that seawater is

With three completely different stories, in three different places in the world Oliver and Jumpy will take your child on fun adventures where they will learn lessons that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Some lessons are purely educational, like camels are often called “ships of the desert”. Other lessons are life lessons such as learning to be sure to “put your priorities in the right order”. Everything is done in a fun and entertaining way.

The pictures are clear, colourful and so

Story 4: Monkey Island

Oliver and Jumpy and Joey go for a day trip to Monkey Island where Joey gets to ride a camel and gets stolen by some hooligan monkeys. Oliver bargains for Joey and the trip ends just fine. Phew!

Story 5: Fairy Castle

This is my favorite of these stories! Oliver and Jumpy and Joey help Molly the Mole in her tunnel figure out what strange things are going on. The pictures of the Fairy land are beautiful and imagine learning to fl

A great follow up to stories 1-3. The stories are good for kids, and while the language might be slightly too advanced for young readers to tackle on their own, they are perfect for reading to younger children while older children can read on their own.

Story 4 might be slightly upsetting for very young kids, as it has Baby Joey placed in some danger by monkeys but overall, these are fun, witty and engaging stories that are a pleasure to read and thanks to the beautifully colored illustrations,
Regina Foo (Queen of Bibliophile)
Great adventure stories with pretty illustrations. With added feature to double-tap on the wordings to zoom in the words, both children and adult can read through the book with ease. The only downside is the background of the words, maybe could choose transparent background instead of sharp colour background like neon blue.

Note: A free copy of this eBook is provided by the author for honest review.
