After many inquiries, Oliver and Jumpy is now available as ebooks for downloading. Currently there are Stories 1-21 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play (not for Apple devices), Ibooks and Kobo. These are seven Ebooks with three stories each. The books have full illustrations, text and audio included (audio only depending on your device). Print books will be available on Amazon in a while. Please follow the direct links below for each book. These are US links. You may have to change to your country's site. The Ebook version allows children to do what they like best, play with screens on tablets and phones. The high resolution pictures can be enlarged with two fingers and many details will become visible in this way.
Please click on the link of your device below each book to download the file. You will find more details at the store or you can watch some free Youtube clips first (links to YouTube clips and written stories are on top of this page. Clips 1-5 are full length without banners).
Please make sure you email me if you have any problem with the downloads!
There are lots of fairy tales and bedtime stories around and many of them quite violent. This made me decide to try writing something quite different. On a flight from Europe to Australia I watched the movie "Magic on Belle Island" starring Morgan Freeman. He teaches a little girl to find imagination and write her first story. It was an inspiration to me and during the sleepless nights following the flight, my two characters, Oliver the cat and Jumpy the kangaroo, made their appearance. There is hardly any violence but enough adventure to keep little people interested. Several artists are illustrating my stories successively. I usually publish a new story every fortnight on Youtube. Just search "Oliver and Jumpy" on Google or YouTube or watch them conveniently through this site. The ebooks allow much better access to the pictures though. Kids just love the new tablet technology which allows them to enlarge details with two fingers or just touch the sound button for audio if they cannot read yet (depending on your device!). Please enjoy and let others know about my stories. Your support is extremely valuable in keeping this project going. I would be very grateful if you could review the books. Thank you! Regards Werner
