Tell Me About It
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'.

It's Spring time in Puffington Hill, and the most unforgettable Sneezing Season ever for Jesper! In this book, packed full of new wonderfully wicked adventures, you're going to get to know Chloe, Jesper's long time future-girlfriend, and meet a Purple Buzzard from the tropical island of Buzzupurplu. Also, there's Rosie, the grinning Squirrel with an attitude and the infamous Diary Wars.

WARNING: This book causes uncontrollable laughter!

My Thoughts
I read the first book in this series a few months ago, and I have been eager to find out what mischief Jesper gets up to next. When the author contacted me in regards to reviewing Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season I did not hesitate in saying yes.
Like the previous book, Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season is split up into smaller stories inside this book. One thing I really like about this series is each book has several stories within it, making it ideal for an unwilling reader to read a quick short story without being overwhelmed by having to read the whole book. There are illustrations throughout the pages that fit with the story being told.

The intro sequence
This introduces Jesper again, but also his crush, Chloe. Jesper has a plan to garner her attention, that involves subway, and a walk along the beach. Want he didn't factor into this situation were the seagulls. This as a very quick but funny read, although I did actually feel sorry for Jesper in this one.

Jesper Jinx and the Purple Buzzard
One of the photos on Dad's camera
 to show how old it really is
Jesper, along with family and friends set off to take a photo of this illusive, rare, purple buzzard, hoping to enter the photograph into a competition and win £50. Armed with his dads ancient camera, and no tablets, Jesper is determined to win. What follows is an hilarious adventure for the whole family.


Payback with a Vengeance
This is Rosie, Payback with a Vengeance is Rosie the squirrels story about how she got revenge on Jesper. Her story is very short, but tells us why she decided to get revenge on Jesper, and how she does it. Rosie is a very sneaky squirrel.

Jesper Jinx and the Diary Wars
The Diary Wars is another boredom buster that Jesper and Oliver play in Melinda, that is quickly turned onto Jesper who finds himself with a future girlfriend with no hair. The boredom buster wasn't what I expected, but I thought it was hilarious and very sneaky.

Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season is another hilarious book from the author, Marko Kitti. It was a quick read, taking about half an hour, but did not lack in the funny department. I found myself laughing at some unfortunate circumstances Jesper finds himself in, but also at his Mum's antics.
