Lots of mischief, ridiculousness, mouth dropping situations, and simply a ton of bad luck make this into a hilarious, fast-paced read. Trouble follows Jesper everywhere but is his strain of nonsense due to bad luck or just plain mischief? It's time for the readers to decide. After learning about another one of the more unfortunate events, which happened in his life. . .and the lives of two mice. . .Jesper's real problem might be revealed. Or maybe not. This is the seventh book in the Jesper Jinx series, but it can be read as a solid stand-alone. Jesper is a nice guy with a big heart. In many ways, he's just like the kid next door. But the rest of his life doesn't reflect this, and that's what makes him so wonderful. Kids will have no problem relating to him as he goes through every day situations, which somehow run amok and then some. The ridiculousness knows no bounds, bringing laughter the whole way through. But there's a lovely sense of real life to all of it, which keeps the story planted somewhat on the ground. Although this can be read by girls too, it's definitely a favorite for boys. And even reluctant readers will enjoying diving into these pages. The story plot is pretty basic but entertaining. It isn't told in traditional story format, but rather has a lively narrator who presents Jesper's turmoil. The reader is asked to sign a form, swearing he won't tell anyone else about these mishaps. At the end, the reader is again asked to answer a few questions to decide Jesper's guilt. All along, there are fitting illustrations. Even the story itself is broken down into different points of view, interviews and a diary form. In other words, nothing about his tale is boring. Summed up, this is another great addition to the series and one readers are sure to enjoy. I can highly recommend this especially for boys ages 8 and up. I received a complimentary copy from the author but am more than happy to leave my honest thoughts, since I truly believe that this is a great series.

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!

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Jesper Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem is the seventh book in the hilarious Jesper Jinx series, written and illustrated by Marko Kitti. Eleven-year-old Jesper Jinx of Puffington Hill seems to have bad luck follow him at every turn. A simple act of taking his two new pet mice, Lenny and Benny, to school ends in disaster and mayhem of hilariously huge magnitude. Unexplained events leave the neighborhood puzzled, as squirrels rain from the sky, furry fruits fly through the air, antique pianos crash into trees, the school cafeteria catches fire, and an adult woman stands atop a police car, uttering total gibberish. Jesper hasn’t a single clue what any of these things have to do with him, but you will have the chance to decide on his possible guilt after you read the facts and check witness statements for yourself. You’d be amazed at how many things can go wrong with the simplest of intentions. A bonus story appears at the end of the book, with my laugh-o-meter shattering into many pieces as it ties into the previous story. The very first lesson I learned while reading a Jesper Jinx book is never to read it in bed when your husband is trying to sleep. Never have I laughed so hard in my life ... and that is even before the story began! Marko Kitti’s incredibly funny tale of a boy who got more than he bargained for, while doing everything he can to ensure nothing goes wrong, turns the lives of many on their heads. One would think that a simple plan of ‘Show and Tell’ with two new pets couldn’t possibly go awry. The book is so cleverly pieced together, telling the story from Jesper’s point of view before all of the people and animals interviewed give their own version of events. On reading all of the information given, the reader is then asked to decide for themselves whether Jesper is guilty or innocent of the carnage caused. Well-written, easy to follow, and with each page a sheer delight, Jesper Jinx and the Mouse Mayhem has found a definite spot in my bookcase-of-rare-gems. I recommend this book to all readers, young and old, who enjoy a hearty laugh, while solving the mother of all mysteries.
