Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians is the first action-packed fantasy adventure in the Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians series for young readers by the #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson. These fast-paced and funny novels are now available in deluxe hardcover editions illustrated by Hayley Lazo.
On his thirteenth birthday, foster child Alcatraz Smedry gets a bag of sand in the mail-his only inheritance from his father and mother. He soon learns that this is no ordinary bag of sand. It is quickly stolen by the cult of evil Librarians who are taking over the world by spreading misinformation and suppressing truth. Alcatraz must stop them, using the only weapon he has: an incredible talent for breaking things.
"In this original, hysterical homage to fantasy literature, Sanderson's first novel for youth recalls the best in Artemis Fowl and A Series of Unfortunate Events." -VOYA

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
