Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–4—Jacob Two-Two and his family are moving to Canada from England and have embarked on the SS Spring-a-Leak, along with other passengers who are various types of actors or entertainers. Unfortunately, Jacob finds that things are not all shipshape onboard as he and Cindy, a girl traveling with her mother, soon uncover some devious plans that result in them being captured by pirates. They were after what they thought was gold on the ship, but it turns out to be Cindy's pet mouse named Treasure. The two children end up on an island and are rescued by other passengers who put on a performance. The writing and plot are uninspired and even young readers will see how silly it is that the pirates decide to become actors. Part of a series that was originally written by Mordecai Richler and that has also been made into a cartoon series, this book has high adventure and black-and-white line drawings interspersed throughout. It might appeal to reluctant readers and those already familiar with the series.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA

“… Fagan crafts a zany tale that kids (in the spirit of Jacob’s doublespeak) will want to read at least twice. Petricic, whose line art complements the story’s humor…” 
— Publishers Weekly

“A delightful, imaginative tale of the incorrigible Jacob Two-Two…. Cary Fagan has woven a wonderfully silly, child-like adventure of ridiculous characters…. This story is a great yarn and hooks the childlike imagination in every reader regardless of age. An excellent use of a character…. Cary Fagan’s adventure story will be a hit with children and adults alike, an excellent chapter book for late primary and junior grades….”
