Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Mordecai Richler is a funny man, a good writer, and everyone should go out tomorrow morning and beat his local bookseller into submission if he hasn’t got a nice plump display of books titled Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang…. It is ghastly and funny…an unbelievably believable unbelievable place with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives.”
The New York Times Book Review
Julia Whedon
Mordecai Richler is a funny man, a good writer, and everyone should go out tomorrow morning and beat his local bookseller into submission if he hasn't got a nice plump display of books titled Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang. It is suitable reading for book reviewers in their late thirties and also young children and their grandmothers.
—The New York Times Book Review
Children's Literature - Jackie Hechtkopf
Jacob Two-Two says everything two times. This is because he is the youngest son in a large British family and no one hears him the first time. Jacob Two-Two has two older brothers, two older sisters, and his age is two plus two plus two years old. When he goes to the greengrocer to buy two pounds of firm red tomatoes, he inexplicably lands in court where he is sentenced to two years, two months, two weeks, two days, two hours, and two minutes in the dungeons of a children's prison. This whimsical adventure is reminiscent of Roald Dahl's books in its humorous portrayal of a young child's view of an adult world. An especially funny chapter describes a toy saboteur who removes pieces from puzzles, batteries from boxes that advertise their inclusion, and English instruction sheets from complicated models. The Hooded Fang that Jacob Two-Two encounters in this story happens to be a prison guard who pretends to hate children while carrying around pockets full of candy. Jacob Two-Two can be found in two other books by the same author. 1997 (orig.

Meet the Author

Mordecai Richler was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1931. Raised there in the working-class Jewish neighbourhood around St. Urbain Street, he attended Sir George Williams College (now a part of Concordia University). In 1951 he left Canada for Europe, settling in London, England, in 1954. Eighteen years later, he moved back to Montreal.

Novelist and journalist, screenwriter and editor, Richler, one of the most acclaimed contemporary writers, has spent much of his career chronicling, celebrating, and criticizing the Montreal and the Canada of his upbringing. Whether the settings of his fiction are St. Urbain Street or European capitals, his major characters never forsake the Montreal world that shaped them. His most frequent voice is that of the satirist, rendering an honest account of his times with care and humour.

Richler’s many honours include two Governor General’s Awards and innumerable other awards for fiction, journalism, and screenwriting.

Mordecai Richler died in Montreal, Quebec, in 2001.
