“Jesper Jinx is eleven, and probably the unluckiest person in all of Puffington Hill. Everything he touches seems to end up in sweet disaster. Hence his nickname ‘Jinx’.
In the third book of his wickedly funny adventures, Jesper goes camping and develops a taste for Turkish Pepper. (WARNING: Turkish Pepper might not be what you think it is!) You’ll also get to know Jesper’s 99-year-old neighbour. Oh, and a fox called Frank. Finally, there’s a huge concert coming to town starring local rapper Horrid Porridge.
Can Jesper rise to the occasion with another Boredom Breaker or will the Turkish Peppers get to him? Some truly splendid antics are in store for you, lucky reader!”
Marko Kitti, a.k.a the Scribbler as he calls himself in the stories, is back with yet another installment in the Jesper Jinx Series. Once again the story begins with the usual request to swear an oath of silence. After all Jesper is not aware that we are reading his stories.
We have had some interesting adventures with Jesper previously and this new installment doesn’t fail to delight. It has all the elements typical of a classic Jesper story. The stories are amusing and will have the reader in splits. Though this is termed as middle grade fiction, I am sure that the stories will appeal to readers of all ages.
Right from fighting with his sister and plotting revenge against her, to making up fun things to do, Jesper is as mysterious a kid as ever and perhaps one of the most entertaining ones I know. His adventures though sometimes unbelievable at first end up being so outrageous that ultimately even the reader is convinced that such things can happen. Frank the fox’s version of events and the way he plays a prank on JEsper and his friend is a wonderful addition to the story. I particularly enjoyed Jesper’s foray into the music world and his experience with the Turkish Pepper. He cannot say that the scribbler did not warn him!
This book is a must read for all Jesper fans out there and a book that everyone will enjoy.
