I’m really not sure what to say about this book series. The illustrations are really great but the stories are a bit strange and not your typically written children’s stories. The book is about Oliver and Jumpy – Oliver is a cat and Jumpy is his lady friend a Kangaroo. The first book is about a mole the second a duck and the 3rd Jumpy’s secret. The book is often featured for free on Amazon and I suggest that is when you check it out. I really can’t put in to words just how dumbfounded I was about how weird these books were when I finished. In fact, I wrote “very weird” as my only notes for the book…
I received a free copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Story 1: Molly the Mole
Jumpy falls over a mole and gains a friend.
Story 2: Saving Ducky

Story 3: Jumpy’s Secret
Jumpy has a surprise!
Oliver and Jumpy are best of friends and experience all sorts of adventures together. Oliver is an elegant black tomcat, who is full of himself. As a matter of fact he says: “I love myself!” quite often. Naughty, isn’t he? But his best friend Jumpy, a kangaroo lady, is aware that it is only a front! Oliver has a soft heart and will always want to help others. The great thing is Jumpy’s pouch, which Oliver loves to ride in! He calls her his kangaroo taxi! These bedtime stories or fairy tales, as you like, are great for their marvellous illustrations you can zoom into, read the overlayed storyline or simply listen to the narrative (depending on publisher!). It gives parents the choice of how involved they want to become. Several talented illustrators are essential to bring these stories to you in quick succession. Love you all! Meow!
