Who knew that libraries were centres for all evil? Alcatraz Smedry, practically the world champion of breaking things, never thought his most boring birthday present - a bag of sand - would get him into this much trouble.

Yet now he's fleeing from evil Librarians, releasing dinosaurs to create a diversion in the Fiction section, and learning that clumsiness can be a powerful talent!

Review by

This was an entertaining book. It felt kind of like a mix between Harry Potter and the movies ‘The Librarian…’ and something else. I don’t know. It was interesting. The humor is not something I necessary think is funny, but there was a quirkiness to it that grows on you. I can tell that this is a book that younger kids would like but I also liked it alright. It’s a fit-all kind of book. I liked how the character was writing the book as if everything was real and the reader was in the dark. It draws the reader in, the way he narrators as if he is the author as well as the character. This book doesn’t have any phenomenal philosophy in it, or life lessons, or inspiring quotes, it’s not even a very high four star - but it’s a good read. It’s great to see that even Sanderson’s early works were pretty good.
