Hott Review:

This review is a bit hard to write. I really liked this book and I LOVED the images. The plot was sound and fun, perfect for children of all ages.
But…
The grammar is off. I think it’s because English isn’t his first language, but some of the sentences are out of sequence or grammatically incorrect. It bothers me but I still will enjoy reading these stories to the little ones.

Author Bio:

Werner StejskalBorn 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. Eventually there will be 17 books with three stories each in English, before being translated into several other languages. 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. Currently seven illustrated ebooks with three stories each are available on most platforms. The first book called “Oliver and Jumpy, Stories 1-3” is available free of charge for a limited time. Please download and review. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
