Alcatraz Smedry doesn't seem destined for anything but disaster. On his 13th birthday he receives a bag of sand, which is quickly stolen by the cult of evil Librarians plotting to take over the world. The sand will give the Librarians the edge they need to achieve world domination. Alcatraz must stop them...by infiltrating the local library, armed with nothing but eyeglasses and a talent for klutziness.

BRANDON SANDERSON is the author of the Mistborn trilogy and Elantris, which Orson Scott Card called “the finest novel of fantasy to be written in many years.” Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians is Brandon's first book for kids. He writes and plays with swords in Provo, Utah.From AudioFile:
Without its excellent narrator, ALCATRAZ would be farfetched, even ludicrous. Thanks to Charlie McWade, however, the improbable autobiography of Alcatraz Smedry is a smart-aleck fantasy that listeners will relish. SmedryÕs special gift, breaking things, helps him battle the evil librarians who hold society captive. The unique voices McWade creates for each character keep the dialogue crisp, as do his superior timing and delivery. In particular, the unreliable AlcatrazÕs sarcastic asides arrive with snort-out-loud humor. When the story gets crazy, McWade pulls listeners back in with a witty crack that will have them searching for missing continents, British dinosaurs, and librarian conspiracies. This is an original offering for the adventure-seeking. C.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
