Jacob Two-Two's First Spy Case
Mordecai Richler. Illustrated by Norman Eyolfson.
Grade 3 - 5 / Ages 8 - 10.
"Yikes," said a terrified Jacob Two-Two. "He's heading our way. What should I say? What should I say?" Mr. I.M. Greedyguts stopped immediately before their table. "I beg your pardon," he said to Jacob Two-Two, "but would you happen to be related to the World's Best Midget Photographer?" "My friend here doesn't understand English," said Mr. Dinglebat. "It's just that he looks so familiar," said Mr. I.M. Greedyguts. Is it possible that I have met the kid at the White House, where I am frequently invited?" "He's no kid," said Mr. Dinglebat, pretending to be insulted. "My companion here is seventy-two years old." "Holy smokes," said Mr. I.M. Greedyguts. "Let me introduce you to Jacob Zweizwei, the World's Most Celebrated Shrinking Man...."
Readers who have met Jacob Two-Two in his previous adventures -- Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang, and Jacob Two-Two and the Dinosaur -- will love his new venture into the world of spy-craft.
