Description
Experience the action-packed first book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson's laugh-out-loud middle-grade fantasy series like never before—now with all new covers! AN ANCIENT RIVALRY REAWAKENS. Everything I'd known about the world was a lie. On my thirteenth birthday, I, Alcatraz Smedry (yes, I got named after a prison, don't ask), received my inheritance: a bag of sand. And then I accidentally destroyed my foster parents' kitchen. It's not my fault, things just break around me, I swear! I thought the sand was a joke until evil Librarians came to steal it. You're probably thinking, "Librarians are nice people who recommend good books," but that's just what they want you to think! It turns out they're actually a secret cabal keeping the truth from you—a hidden world filled with magical eyeglasses, talking dinosaurs, and knights with crystal swords! Or so my Grandpa Smedry claimed when he suddenly showed up to rescue me. So now I have to go with him to invade the local library and get that sand back, before it's used to conquer the world. And Grandpa says how I keep breaking things is actually an amazing talent. There's no way that can all be true, right? Will I ever make it back home alive? "An excellent choice to read aloud to the whole family. Funny, exciting, and briskly paced."—NPR

        January 22, 2018
        This first of a series of young adult fantasy novels, originally published in 2007, makes excellent use of cinematic music and digital sound effects. Multiple actors voice the central characters, who are oddly named after famous prisons: there’s the 13-year old protagonist Alcatraz Smedry, his grandfather Leavenworth, best friends Sing and Quentin, and Bastille, a strong, clever, angry, and thoroughly obnoxious girl who tags along. They are fighting the “evil librarians” who are attempting to take over the world. Alcatraz, struggling with his irresolution and lack of confidence, has, like the other members of his family, an unusual talent: in his case, the ability to destroy whatever he touches. This is evoked with lots of loud and suggestive sound effects during the big battle scenes. The production includes 17 actors, most of whom seem to have very minor roles, but their variety and a remarkably good musical score contribute to the jolly mood of violent mayhem. Ages 9–up. A Scholastic hardcover.
