Editorial Reviews

Review

“Everyone should go out tomorrow and beat his local bookseller into submission if he hasn’t got a nice, plump display of books titled Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang.”
New York Times Book Review

From the Inside Flap

Poor Jacob Two-Two. Not only must he say everything twice just to be heard over his four brothers and sisters, but he finds himself the prisoner of the dreaded Hooded Fang. What had he done to deserve such a punishment? The worst crime of all ? insulting a grown-up! Although he?s small, Jacob is not helpless, especially when The Infamous Two come to his aid.

As an elementary teacher, I have found this fun and hilarious book to be a younger "Harry Potter". "Jacob Two-Two" is straightforward, human, and vivid. It highlights the themes of empathy, independence, and power--a strong message about the value of every individual. I would highly recommend it for any child from grades 1-4. Excellent!

Format: Paperback
Jacob Two-Two is one of the most imaginative stories I've read in a while. It reminds of being a kid in my carefree days. I have actually watered my mom's flowers an hour after she had and flooded her flowerbeds.

Basically, the story is about a 6 year-old boy who repeats everything twice just to be heard because he's the youngest out of five. Because he wants to be helpful, he wants to run an errand for the first time. He goes to Mr. Cooper, the greengrocer to get two pounds of firm, red tomatoes. After insulting Mr. Cooper (he didn't really insult Mr. Cooper, Mr. Cooper was just teasing him, but Jacob doesn't know that), he ran into Richmond Park to hide from the police. He was afraid the police might send him to jail for insulting a big person. Then, in Richmond Park he falls asleep into a crazy dream with the Hooded Fang, two super heroes, and a children's prison.

This book is about a young boy ( 2+2+2 years old) who is sentto a children's prison in the foggiest part of England. This prison isrun by a Former wrestler called The Hooded Fang. The Hooded Fang considers himself vile, vicious, and mean, but nobody agrees. The Intrepid Shapiro and the Fearless O'Toole plot to rescue Jacob and all the other children in the Children's Prison but there are a few kinks. A worker at the Children's prison called Mr. Fox leads them to the Children's Prison. After a great battle... I won't tell you the rest. S. Perry

Jacob Two-Two is 2+2+2 years old. Jacob says everything twice. So when he asks Mr. Cooper for two pounds of firm red tomatoes twice, Mr Cooper thinks he is insulted and Jacob finds himself on Slimers Isle, home of the Hooded Fang. If you like to laugh, and love to smile you'll love Jacob Two-Two Meets The Hooded Fang.

Format: Paperback
When you were really little, didn't you think that somewhere there was an awful place and if you were bad, you would have to go there? Well, this is what happened to Jacob Two Two.
The reason he was called jacob Two Two was because he was the littlest one in a big family and he always had to say everything twice to be heard. This characteristic is what started all his problems.
When he was sent to the grocery store for tomatoes, he said, "I want two pounds of firm, red tomatoes. I want two pounds of firm, red tomatoes." The grocer thought he was making fun of him and called a policeman to have him arrested for being rude to an adult. Then he was sent to the children's court where the judge sentenced him to 2 years, 2 months, 2 days, 2 hours and 2 minutes in the darkest dungeons of the children's prison for being a smart aleck.
The prison was surrounded by water with blood thirsty sharks and slimy crocodiles, their jaws snapping hungrily. The sign said, "This way to Slimers Island from which no brat returns." The jailer was called the Hooded Fang.

When Jacob Two-two is thrown in the childrens prison on Slimers Isle for mocking a big person it's up to him with a little help from Fearless O'Toole and the Intrepid Shapiro (child power) to save the kids of Slimers Isle from the mean, excrutiating,vile Hooded Fang.Read this book to find out if Jacob Two-Two, even as small as he is can save the children of Slimers Isle.
