Jacob two-two is the youngest. No one ever listens to him so he has to repeat himself two times. This becomes a problem when he has to get two pounds of tomatoes from the grocer and is thrown into children's prison for insulting an adult. I was surprised at Jacob's ingenuity as he devices a plan, with the help of Child Power, in order to escape from prison. I especially liked the character of the Hooded Fang, who certainly isn't as he appears to be. A book recommended for children in grades 3-5 as this is a primarly text based chapter book with a few illustrations throughout. ( )

Old Children's Book. Liked it as a kid, but haven't read it in years. ( )

A young boy, Jacob repeats everything twice. Wanting some independence, his father agrees to let him run an errand to pick up some tomatoes. At the store, mistaken for insulting a grownup by repeating himself, he is imprisoned by the Hooded Fang and other big people. Jacob Two-Two and hundreds of other children are then set free by Child Power superheroes. ( )

A little kid that gets ignored all the time - and has to make himself heard once again (hence the name), gets thrown in the slammer for the horrible crime of an insult.

Supervillains to overcome, superhero friends to have help you out, etc.

A funny kids book.
