Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Children's story Having read the stories, not in any particular order, I fell in love the great writing of Stejskal and his characters Oliver (the elegant tomcat) and Jumpy (the kangaroo). In this first collection of stories, the reader is introduced to the Oliver and Jumpy and their other friends. Oliver joyfully states "I am refined!" In the first story, they "meet" Molly the mole. In the second story, Oliver and Jumpy help a duck, named Queck and then meet his brothers. In the third story, Jumpy has her baby "Joey." The graphics also help introduce the characters and help tell the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hop into a wonderful adventure Oliver is a very refined, gentleman tomcat and his best friend is Jumpy, a female kangaroo. Together they explore the world, have great adventures, and make many new friends. Oliver hops into Jumpy's pouch and off they go a-travelling...... This collection of three stories teaches children about good manners, morals and ethics. In Story #1 the best friends meet up with Molly the Mole. She lives in a dark hole underground and cannot see well. She offers the two delicious delicacies of worms and bugs which they politely decline because in and their hearts they know they have something even better than that....Molly as a new friend. In Story #2 we find out that poor Oliver has an allergic reaction to birds and mice, which is strange for a cat for sure. Instead he must sustain himself on crunchies, so fish can be on his menu. The friendly duo decide to go fishing and on their travels they meet up with Ducky and a family of ducks. Jumpy and Oliver turn into super heroes when the duck family is attacked by a vicious flying eagle and they save the day. This is a story of caring for others and bravery when danger comes to harm you or your new friends. Story #3 relates to us how Oliver solves a problem when he is bothered by a cigar smoking boar pig of all things. Oliver lives in a tree house in a sturdy oak tree so he boldly pours water on the boar and that makes the intruder get out of there pronto. Very clever indeed. He cleans the mess up and goes looking for his best friend Jumpy. He is very surprised to discover that a brand new baby is hiding in Jumpy's pouch. How fun will that be to have company join him when he is off and bouncing into a new adventure with his best friend in the world? The stories are age appropriate and the illustrations are expressive, colourful and engaging. The books in the series carry a very positive message of the importance of friendship and caring for those friends around you. There will be a total of seventeen books upon completion. Kids will enjoy these adventures and will look forward to reading the next release.
