Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones

By: Brandon Sanderson

In this, the second of Alcatraz's adventures, Alcatraz finds himself crashing a glass-mechanical-flying-dragon while on his way to find the Library of Alexandria. Along the way, Alcatraz catches up with Bastille, and meets up with an uncle and cousin he didn't even know he had. Once again, Alcatraz is up against some very evil librarians who want to keep all the information to themselves. And, on top of all that, Grandpa Smedry is missing!

Mrs. Senechal says:
Be sure to read Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians before you read this book, it will really help you understand the characters and plot! I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first one. The author does a great job of keeping you in suspense and making you laugh. I think it's very interesting to think about all the things we assume are true, and how our world might be different then we expect. Thankfully, we don't have to worry about librarians actually being evil!
