Jacob Two-Two - Main Characters

X. Barnaby Dinglebat - On the surface he's a mild-mannered gas meter-reader, but he's really an international spy! Barnaby is the only adult Jacob knows who treats him as an equal.
Buford Orville Gaylord Pugh - Despite his unfortunate name, Buford is one mellow dude. He is the new kid at school (just like Jacob) and the two become fast friends.
Renée "Rattlesnake" Ratelle - Renée is the hotheaded French girl in Jacob's class. The two don't get along until they team up to solve a mystery together.
The Family - Jacob's dad writes adventure books, his mom is a master of organization, and his sibs (Daniel, Marfa, Emma and Noah) are all too busy to make time for Jacob.
Principal Greedyguts - Principal Greedyguts is a chubby, materialistic man with a serious dislike of children.

What's not to like? Its got a story, its got artwork which gets better every year and it's a lot of fun. You can get attached to the characters, feel emotion, etc. Its the same with reading a book, watching anime or even a movie. It just happens to be in a different format.
[This may seem weird but when I'm reading a manga I can hear the sounds]
