Marvelous story of the little boy who is sent to the Children's Prison for "insulting behavior to grown-ups." The prison is run by the infamous ex-wrestler "The Hooded Fang," who is not exactly what he seems....This book will be enjoyed by children and adults alike; it is very funny and touching as well. However, I recommend the slightly abridged version recorded by Christpher Plummer which is a masterpiece (he does all the voices and is simply killing.) Jacob Two-two's siblings come to the rescue and the ending is quite exciting.
My 10-year-old grandson, Simon, loves the Jacob Two-Two television program. When I told him it was based on a real series of books, he begged me to get them for him. Now he can't wait for the next book to arrive. This story takes place before the family relocates to Canada and Jacob is sent to Children's Prison on Slimer Island, run by the Hooded Fang - his crime? Insulting a grown-up!
