Oliver and Jumpy’s 46th adventure is a longer, darker tale that those that go before, though all ends well in traditional style with a nicely appropriate punishment for the bad guys. With the fairy fields secured, number 47 takes our heroes to the humid jungle where Oliver learns it’s never good to lie. Then in number 48 our elegant cat confesses that he’s not always tidy. Oh dear. But how does his house become so clean each night?

Bright illustrations have some surprising details in this book, inviting young readers to guess what’s happening. Meanwhile there are pleasingly inclusive touches, with Oliver’s allergies and need to avoid milk, plus a nice request that we try to avoid cutting down trees. After all, Oliver does live in a tree.

I’m not sure why, but this one may be one of my favorite Oliver and Jumpy books. Enjoy.

Disclosure: I bought it on a deal. ( )
