Oliver and Jumpy: Stories 28-30 (Oliver & Jumpy, the Cat Series Book 10): Bedtime stories with a cat & a kangaroo, written by Warner Stejskal. I gave these stories five stars.
These are fun to read children's stories for ages one to ten. Oliver is a tomcat & Jumpy, the kangaroo is his best friend.
Story 28: Letter in a Bottle written by Warner Stejskal & illustrated by Vinil Raj is where Foxy was being punished by being sent to his room for sweeping crumbs under the rug. He wrote a note & placed it into a bottle plugged with chewing gum & threw it into a river. Oliver, Joey & Jumpy found the bottle with the note where he described being held prisoner.
They came to rescue him & discovered it was only a prank. They had tea with him after Foxy's mother invited them in to the house.
Story 29: Oliver Meeting Jumpy written by Werner Stejskal. Oliver & some of his friends went on a safari looking for a rare flower which could be used for brewing tea & was good against a cough.
They found a kangaroo with a broken leg. They made Oliver made a splint with tree branches. They made a sleigh & took her to the hospital. After her leg was mended, Oliver took rides in her pouch. Even though it wasn't a great start, they became good friends.
Story 30: Enchanted Forest written by Werner Stejskal & illustrated by Anahil Aleksanyan is a good introduction to the characters. Jumpy has a son, Joey. They decided to visit Ghost Castle. There were tales of it being haunted but they were not afraid. They passed through a rotten door & discovered a green enchanted forest. The trees had been soldier before Cassandra the witch put a spell on them. Oliver took out his magic wand & they resumed their former shapes as meerkat soldiers.
They met the witch Cassandra who was ready to turn Oliver, Jumpy & Joey into frogs. They had the many meerkat soldiers overcome her & take away her magic wand. They turned her into a donkey who now had to carry the gear for the army as a payback for all the time they had spent as trees.
They found other creatures that Cassandra had bewitched & also returned them to their former shapes. Then they had a celebration.
I received a free kindle copy from Amazon in exchange for a fair review. That did not influence my opinion.
