Book Review: Oliver & Jumpy Stories 13-15

Oliver and Jumpy, Stories 13-15 (Oliver and Jumpy, the cat series)Oliver and Jumpy stories 13-15 consists of Baby Sitting, Good Deed Day and Magic. I had previously read stories 1-3. Oliver is an elegant tomcat and Jumpy is his best friend. They are always looking for new adventures.

Story 13: Baby Sitting

Oliver is baby sitting the Bears little bear, Bearly. They play hide and seek. At first, Bearly is using his same old hiding spots and Oliver has no trouble finding him. But on round 2 of the game, Oliver cannot find Bearly. Bearly fell in a hole in a tree and couldn’t get out. Rubber, the snake helped them get him out of the hole and Bearly had a bath and Oliver decided to not tell his parents what happened.

Story 14: Good Deed Day

Stripy is Oliver’s friend who lost her newborn baby. Oliver asks Mrs. Piggy to give one of her piglets to Stripy for her to look after to make her feel better. Stripy taught the piglets to hunt. Then Mr. Tiger came home and wanted to eat them! Then Stripy found out she was expecting another baby!

Story 15: Magic

Jumpy’s son Joey is going to learn magic, and Oliver and Jumpy tag along on a trip to the castle to meet the wizard. Oliver jumped out a window and was able to fly with the magic wand.

I still find these books to be a bit different and I’m not sure they’re really appropriate for all kids. (Jumping out windows, the guy answering the door at the castle calling them “dummies”) but I do love the illustrations. If you have small kids you might want to read the books first to see if they are appropriate for your child.  They are often listed for free on Amazon for you to buy.
