I'm at the part where you have to jump on the hook handed man. What character should I use, and how do I beat it???

Much nastier... not only can he only be harmed at certain times; he can also
damage you (i.e. your Misery Meter will rise) if you attack at other times!
Again the clue to beating him is in his challenge when you first meet:

So you kids think you're pretty smart, huh? Well, I
bet you won't get the JUMP on me!

In this case, you have to JUMP over him and attack from behind. However,
there's a slight complication in that you MUST NOT TAKE DAMAGE as you jump
over him (i.e. your character mustn't flash white). If you do this
successfully, his head will droop -- this indicates that it is safe to attack.
Some tips:

o Every now and then, he bends down and sparks a hook on the floor before
throwing it at you -- this is obviously the best time to try jumping over
him (although it CAN be done when he's standing).

o I generally found Klaus the best to use when dealing with a Hook Handed
Man (he doesn't seem to be AS affected if you attack at the wrong time).

o The first time you meet him, I found practising as Violet helps -- if you
attack with Apple Cores when you didn't get the jump right (i.e. when he
won't take damage) you can see them bounce back towards you much more
easily. If they don't bounce back, you did the jump right and he's taking
damage. Once you have the "rhythm" for jumping OK, I would switch to
Klaus from then on.
