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 this first book of Jesper Jinx’s wonderfully wicked adventures, you’re going to meet Jesper’s family and Snowy the Cat.

Also, there’s a mysterious new classmate with a moustache. And it’s up to Jesper to launch his famous Boredom Breaker.

As Jesper so frequently says, ‘What harm would it do to have a little fun?’

Humorous middle-grade fiction from author Marko Kitti.

Hott Review:

Oh my! I loved this book! I sat down sad one evening and promptly starting laughing my way through this great book! It’s perfect for those reluctant readers you can’t get to pick up a thing or the children who love to have you read to them!
Jesper is a fun middle-grade boy whose antics and bad luck get him into more trouble than he’s able to handle. What sets this apart is that it’s told by his neighbor who stole the stores of Jasper’s life to alleviate his writers block. The whole premise is fun – especially the keeping fun secrets part!
