From the Publisher
He's back! The late Mordecai Richler had planned more adventures
for his small hero and now, with the full support of the Richler
family, award-winning author Cary Fagan carries on the tradition in
a hilarious story for a whole new generation of Jacob fans.
After Jacob Two-Two's father writes a very important novel, the
family makes plans to move to Canada.
They board the SS Spring-a-Leak for a journey across the
ocean. Jacob Two-Two makes some new acquaintances - the
unbelievably handsome Captain Sparkletooth, the acrobatic Bubov
Brothers, the failed toy inventor Mr. Peabody, and the giant but
gentle Morgenbesser. Most important, he makes friends with young
Cindy Snootcastle, who keeps a secret treasure in her pocket.
But something is wrong on the SS Spring-a-Leak. A series
of clues - a black eye patch; a parrot who squawks "Apple sauce in
your underpants!"; and a sailing ship flying the Jolly Roger - can
only mean trouble. Will the intrepid Shapiro and the fearless
O'Toole really be left on a desert island? Will Jacob Two-Two be
made to walk the plank?
Jacob Two-Two on the High Seas is a treat for
those who know Jacob and for those who are about to meet one of the
most endearing characters in children's literature.
