Book Review for Oliver and Jumpy

Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 1.02.19 PM

This is a wonderful series of short stories with full colorful and detailed illustrations. The main character is Oliver, an animated child cat; he is the sole narrator of his stories. The first story is about Bearly a bear who accidentally fell into a tree hole and finally was saved by a snake. The second story is about Stripy the tiger mom who lost her baby learned to take care of three piglets. The third one is about Jumpy and Joey, a mother Kangaroo and her son, their adventure magic journey with Oliver. The stories are cute and the adventures are full of fun and imagination. The illustrations are colorful and full of details, truly bringing the story to life. Highly recommend, and I’ll definitely grab other books in the series.

Also, The ebook currently is on sale. The free download will be available for another few days. Afterwards it will revert to paid. Click Here to download.

About the Author:
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! The graphics, outstandingly created by the artist, have their hues and shapes completely adapted to the respective situation and so contribute to the emotional absorption of each picture. Text and message. sombre feelings and cheery situations are being created and masterly entertain the little readers. One can only recommend this series of children’s books to all adults who wish to keep their little ones occupied in a positive, entertaining and learning environment!

BLU DOG Home Alone

Super excited to announce that our new book BLU DOG Home Alone was released today on Amazon! Teamed up with Todd Grey, we had so much fun making this book possible.  Interactive children’s activity section inside and a free coloring book included. Click here to purchase the book on Amazon.

You have often heard the age old question; if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? BUT have you ever thought about this one; if a dog is home alone and no one is around to watch him, does he have more fun than we think?” Christopher Anderson is your typical kindergartener whose imagination runs wild when asking himself that very same question. Young children and parents alike will truly enjoy reading this book and discovering what Christopher thinks his beloved dog Blu is actually doing while he is attending school. The Blu Dog Book series aims to encourage your child to develop and expand their imaginations in both a unique and fun way. At the end of the story, we offer an interactive section which allows parents to help their children express themselves in their own words and illustrations, just like Christopher Anderson.
