"Oliver and Jumpy", are best of friends and experience many adventures together. (68 pages) Oliver is a black-and-white tomcat, 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. Oliver loves to ride in Jumpy's pouch. He calls her his kangaroo taxi! There are lots of fairy tales and bedtime stories around and many of them are quite violent and unsuitable for young children. 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 to her first story. This inspired Werner as well and the first stories of the series made their appearance. This is the seventh book in the printed series, combining Stories 37-42. Story 37: Rescue in a Picture - What a way to travel! Check this out! Story 38: Wet Cat - Oliver has a wet accident. Story 39: Down River - Dangerous boating on a wild river! Story 40: Elephant Heaven - The elephants need Oliver's help. Story 41: Waking the princess - Oliver gets to kiss a princess. Story 42: Space Ball - An alien visits Sillandia. These stories are beautifully illustrated and short enough as bedtime stories. The text is NOT very simple picture book style, but more demanding. So, while little children will enjoy the sometimes complex pictures and have a parent telling them the stories in his own words, older children will do their own reading and use this book as a first reader. Therefore I believe these books will attract children from a very early age until about eight years old. Author Peter Frederick is writing about this series: Here are 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 oRne 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.

The Olympic Games have had two lives—the first lasted for a millennium with celebrations every four years at Olympia to honour the god Zeus. The second has blossomed over the past century, from a simple start in Athens in 1896 to a dazzling return to Greece in 2004. Onward to the Olympics provides both an overview and an array of insights into aspects of the Games’ history. Leading North American archaeologists and historians of sport explore the origins of the Games, compare the ancient and the modern, discuss the organization and financing of such massive athletic festivals, and examine the participation ,or the troubling lack of it, by women. Onward to the Olympics bridges the historical divide between the ancient and the modern and concludes with a thought-provoking final essay that attempts to predict the future of the Olympics over the twenty-first century.
