Jesper Jinx (book #1)

“A charmingly old-fashioned sort of set-up which will appeal to young readers who have outgrown Horrid Henry.” Rebecca Davies, The Independent
Jesper Jinx

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.

What harm would it do to have a little fun?
