Jesper Jinx Goes Fishing in more than ways one!
Jesper Jinx has had some amazing adventures in his previous three books; Jesper Jinx, Jesper Jinx and the Snezing Season and Jesper Jinx and the Turkish Pepper and they continue in this fourth instalment; Jesper Jinx Goes Fishing.
11 year old Jesper lives with his stay-at-home Mum, travelling soap salesman Dad, 12 year old sister Melinda (his arch-enemy) and Snowy the cat in Puffington Hill on the South Coast of England. His best friend is Oliver. He loves playing pranks on people, especially at his sister’s expense. Jesper gets bored easily but relieves boredom with his Boredom Breakers, the only problem is that if it can go wrong, it will go wrong for Jesper and others around him. He is the unluckiest boy in the world when it comes to his pranks.
The Silly Old Scribbler still hasn’t told Jesper that he has already published the stories that Jesper told him. Marko had agreed to write the stories for Jesper alone but they were too good not to be shared with us, the reader. So as in the previous books, you need to sign the Secrecy Agreement to continue to read this book. But remember DON’T TELL JESPER! He cannot know of existence of these books, under any circumstances. Not only could he sue the author but we would have no more stories involving Jesper and his adventures.
In the fourth outing of the Jesper Jinx series Jesper goes fishing, in 3 more tales – and in more ways than one! In this volume Jesper becomes a detective. He goes fishing for information when his sister and Melinda and Oliver are keeping something big a secret from him. He then continues his investigations with fishing for something furry that isn’t a fish and finally, actually goes fishing for fish but catches something much, much larger.
We also have Fernando Ferret telling his own story and a bonus story about Melinda’s Stinky Night-night where Jesper gets his own back on Melinda after being pranked by her earlier in the day.
Overall, Jesper Jinx Goes Fishing is another excellent, well-written, quirky and funny collection of Jesper’s adventures. It is written as if the author is just talking to the reader and involving them in something special (especially as by signing the Secrecy Agreement you become complicate in naughty Mr Kitti’s crime!).
If you haven’t read any of the Jesper Jinx series you are in for a treat, whether you are 7 or 107 they are fun and enjoyable.
