Brandon Sanderson won instant acclaim with young listeners for the first volume of his humorous and action-packed Alcatraz series, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians. In his second adventure, Alcatraz has his hands full with a Scrivener's Bone-a half-human, half-machine assassin-pursuing him. And if that's not enough, Alcatraz receives word that his father is in mortal danger. Now it's up to Alcatraz and a quirky band of his relatives to mount a daring rescue.Show more

But their fight is made all the more harrowing when the Librarians unleash their army of giant killer robots onto the battlefield.Show more
A whole army of evil Librarians! And Alcatraz Smedry has only his friend, Bastille, a few pairs of glasses and an unlimited supply of exploding teddy bears to help him defend the island of Mokia. Even Alcatraz's extraordinary talent for breaking things may not be enough to defeat the evil Librarians' giant robots. Can Alcatraz find a way to save the Free Kingdoms?Show more
The author of the Mistborn trilogy and Elantris, Brandon Sanderson is winning abundant praise for this rollicking-and unusual-tale. Alcatraz Smedry can't exactly be described as someone who doesn't break things. In fact, he breaks lots of things. The truth is, he's a major klutz. Breaking things, however, might just be the ace in the hole he needs when he goes up against a cabal of nefarious (gasp!) librarians.Show more
