Product Description

From Amazon

Poor Jacob Two-Two! Miss Sour Pickle, Jacob's mean geography teacher, calls on him whenever he daydreams in class, and Mr. I. M. Greedyguts, the new headmaster of Jacob's school, hired Loathsome Leo Louse to prepare monstrous meals that Jacob and his classmates must eat down to the very last bite. Luckily, Mr. Dinglebat, world-renowned spymaster, just moved in next door and has concocted a plan to help Jacob. Packed with colorful characters, secret spy tricks, and lots of fun, Jacob Two-Two's First Spy Case will enthrall and excite children's imaginations. For more Jacob adventures, kids should check out Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang and Jacob Two-Two and the Dinosaur, the first two books in this series of three from Commonwealth Book Prize-winning author Mordecai Richler. (Ages 7 to 10) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5. The star of this spy story has been featured in Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang (1994) and Jacob Two-Two and the Dinosaur (1995, both Random). Here, the eight year old deals with an unpleasant situation at his exclusive private school. When headmaster Mr. Goodbody retires and is replaced by Mr. I. M. Greedyguts, things look bad. When Mrs. Bountiful, the school cook, is replaced by Perfectly Loathsome Leo Louse's catering service, things become decidedly worse. Jacob takes action. With the help of a wonderfully wacky new neighbor and master spy, his supportive family, some spy tricks, and many unusual disguises, the boy defeats the villains and emerges triumphant. Richler's story brings to mind Roald Dahl and Daniel Pinkwater, as characters are drawn with bold and silly strokes, word play abounds, and kids are the heroes. Jacob Two-Two's fans will enjoy spending more time in the boy's world. Humorous black-and-white cartoons help to capture the intrigue. With its simple but satisfying plot and tongue-in-cheek humor, this pleasant read-alone or read-aloud will attract youngsters not quite ready for Dahl but past David Adler's "Cam Jansen" books (Viking).?Jody McCoy, Lakehill Preparatory School, Dallas, TX

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars Nov. 18 2009
By 1morechapter.com - Published on Amazon.com
"Poor Mr. Dinglebat was in a state. He had, he told Jacob Two-Two, recently invested a good deal of money in buying Canadian military secrets, and now he was stuck with them. 'No customers,' he said."

This clever children's book by Mordecai Richler was written for his children and modeled after the same, and it was just simply a delight to read. Featuring not only Jacob Two-Two, but also I.M. Greedyguts, Miss Sour Pickle, and Perfectly Loathsome Leo Louse, this third installment of the Jacob Two-Two series made me laugh out loud at several points. I really, really enjoyed it.

Even if I did have CABLE or whatever. Read online stuff, etc, it's nice to have a book that's not a big deal. Pick up anytime!!
