Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season by Marko Kitti Review

Jesper Jinx Series #2


Jesper Jinx is back in the second volume in this fantastic collection of Jesper’s troubles in this hilarious children’s series. Sneezing shouldn’t cause any problems, but it is about to ruin Jesper’s day!

11-year-old Jesper Jinx is the world’s unluckiest, mischievous prankster!

Readers of the previous Jesper Jinx book Jesper Jinx Volume One will be aware of the Secrecy Agreement the author Marko Kitti asks every reader to sign (as Jesper is not allowed to know of the existence of these books as the stories were told to the author in the strictest of confidence. If for some bizarre reason you haven’t read the first book, the Secrecy Agreement is in this one ready for readers, young and old, to sign!

If you are new to the Jesper Jinx series here is a quick recap. Jesper is 11 years old and lives in Puffington Hill on the South Coast of England with his Mum, Dad, 12 year old sister Melinda and Snowy the cat. He has a very vivid imagination and hates being bored. To relieve his boredom he, along with his best friend Oliver, play lots of pranks but they have a tendency to backfire and get him into trouble.

In this collection of stories Jesper ignores his parents and doesn’t take his allergy pills (hence Sneezing Season). We also see sandwich stealing seagulls, a purple buzzard, a vengeful squirrel that costs Jesper £50, diary wars between Jesper and Melinda and 2 very extreme haircuts!

Overall, this is another collection of Jesper Jinx stories that children from the age of 8 (and adults like me!) will love. No matter what Jesper plans or attempts, things just never seem to go right, but in among the turmoil some things do work out OK in the end for him.

At around 150 pages the stories are relatively short but are hilarious, fun and expertly written. Simple, fun stories that children will relate to and engage with. The author writes these books as though he is having a personal conversation with the reader, which is engaging and makes the reader a conspirator in keeping the book secret from poor Jesper (maybe I shouldn’t be writing a review of the book, hopefully Jesper won’t see it!).

Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season is a fun collection of stories that children will love to read and want more!
