Jesper Jinx and the Turkish Pepper (book #3)

“This story gives children something that they can relate to and be able to daydream about as if they, too, were a part of the story.” Vernita Naylor, Readers’ Favorite


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 the third book of his wickedly funny adventures, Jesper goes camping and develops a taste for Turkish Pepper. (WARNING: Turkish Pepper might not be what you think it is!) You’ll also get to know Jesper’s 99-year-old neighbour. Oh, and a fox called Frank. Finally, there’s a huge concert coming to town starring local rapper Horrid Porridge.

Can Jesper rise to the occasion with another Boredom Breaker or will the Turkish Peppers get to him?

Some truly splendid antics are in store for you, lucky reader!

“This is an absolute Do-Not-Miss series for middle-grade boys!” (Review)

“Ah, Jesper. How you make me laugh! Jesper is forever getting into a pickle (or should that be a pepper?!)” (Review)

“As a reader familiar with Jesper’s antics, I sat in suspense anticipating the unfortunate events that are likely to occur to Jesper even though he was trying to do right. Well, of course, it appears everything will go badly for Jesper but then gets turned around and goes remarkably well. I loved this ending.” (Review)

“This story gives children something that they can relate to and be able to daydream about as if they, too, were a part of the story. It is daydreaming and adventure that helps children maintain their creativity.” (Review)

“This book is a must read for all Jesper fans out there and a book that everyone will enjoy.” (Review)
