Jesper Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem

amazon Goodreads
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’.

But this time around, it is Puffington Hill itself that appears to be jinxed. The school canteen gets shut down and children are forced to eat wild clover flowers for lunch. Horrible hairy acorns fall from the sky, targeting black cats and squirrels. An eyewitness even claims to have seen a flying antique piano.

Something utterly peculiar is going on.

And it is up to you, Dear Reader, to help Jesper figure out who’s responsible for these seemingly unrelated incidents. Could it be Jesper himself? Or Lenny and Benny, the WARRIOR MOUSE brothers? Or even you yourself, the unsuspecting Book Gobbler?

Hott Review:

It seems so horribly unfair when a child is as unlucky as Jesper that we condemn him the unfortunate events surrounding him.

As you’re reading about Jasper Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem you’ll come to find that as unlucky as Jesper is, we’re on the opposite end of that scale. We’ve been given all the luck he’s missing since we not only get to read the account of the mayhem but we didn’t have to experience any of it… though I’m feeling quite sorry for the residents of Puffington Hill.

Only one question remains at the end of Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem… is Jesper responsible for this mayhem or does he really have a jinx?

I can’t remember when I’ve laughed so hard as I have while reading Jesper Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem – even days later as I’m still thinking about this book! This is definitely a book I’ll share with the middle-grade children I adore.
