Children's Book Week: Jesper Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem by Marko Kitti

Synopsis: "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?"

My Review: I have loved this series since it began, but I think this might be one of the best books (I think I may have said this before). It is up to the reader to decide if Jesper is actually jinxed or if he is completely innocent . The way this one is set up really gets young readers thinking, it is a fun way to integrate reading retention into a fun book. Of course the antics in this book are off the charts funny, but what else can you expect when Jesper gets himself a pair of Norwegian Warrior Mice! This is a great continuation of the series (though each of the books could be read as a stand alone), that readers young and old will enjoy.
My Rating: I have so enjoyed this series and I think it improves with each book if that is even possible. I really liked how this one sneaks in some learning without a reader even knowing.  I give this one a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
I was sent this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
