Hello, My name is Margaret. I am just a girl who loves to read and review books for fun. I do accept books for review but this does not mean that I will give the book a positive review. Whether bought or sent I will always share my HONEST opinion on a book.

Book Promo | Werner Stejskal | Oliver And Jumpy
and Jumpy”, are best of friends and experience many adventures together in this
extensive series. Oliver is a tuxedo cat, who is very self-assured. As a matter
of fact he says: “I love myself!” quite often. But his best friend Jumpy is
aware that he is only putting up 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!
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 in the printing
industry for many years and later for the United Nations in Vienna. Now
retired, after a full and eventful life, he began to write children’s stories.
He found illustrators through Odesk (now Upwork) and finally took the next step
by publishing the series "Oliver and Jumpy".

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!" - Peter Frederick, Author
There are lots of fairy tales and bedtime stories around and many of
them are quite violent and unsuitable for young children. This made me decide
to write something different. On a flight from Europe to Australia I 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 me as
well and the first stories with the two main characters Oliver, the elegant
tomcat, and Jumpy, his kangaroo lady friend, made their appearance. It was my
full intention to create something quite different and maybe even controversial
at times. I prefer to treat children like adults within reason. Goodreads Amazon
