Children’s Book Review “Jesper Jinx” by Marko Kitti

Summary from 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’.

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.


This was a fun read. From the beginning the book is written like someone is talking to you. It has a very informal tone that I think would easily appeal to the target age for this book.

I especially liked the “form” the author asks the reader to sign. It’s a cute idea that gives the book a secretive appeal. Great idea to draw in readers.

The collection of stories are humorous and fun. Each one will have you laughing out loud at the antics of Jesper. He is a crafty fella. 

The stories are clever and witty. They have just the right amount of action, plot, description and pacing needed to grab a young kids attention. 

All in all the author did a great job. 

I grant this book the full 5 stars.
