Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang
Mordecai Richler, illustrated by Dušan Petričić
Poor Jacob Two-Two, only two plus two plus two years old and already a prisoner of The Hooded Fang. What had he done to deserve such terrible punishment? Why, the worst crime of all — insulting a grown-up. (From Tundra Books)
Standing inside the gates of the children's prison, Jacob Two-Two stared up into the menacing face of the warden — the dreaded Hooded Fang.
"Remove this prisoner to the lowest, dampest dungeon,' growled the Hooded Fang, 'And put him on a diet of stale bread and water."
