Alcatraz Smedry has an incredible talent...for breaking things! It generally gets him into a lot of trouble, but can he use it to save the day? In this second Alactraz adventure, Alcatraz finds himself on a mission to save Grandpa Smedry ...until he gets swept up by a flying glass dragon filled with his unusually usual yet mouthy Smedry cohorts.
Their mission? A dangerous, library-filled one of course! This time they are on their way to the ancient and mysterious Library of Alexandria (which some silly people think was long ago destroyed!) where they must find Grandpa Smedry, look for clues leading to Alcatraz's potential undead dead father, and battle the creepy and dangerous soul-sucking Curators who await them.
Praise for Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones
"Sanderson gives due weight to his characters’ dangerous situation and its emotional implications, balancing absurdity, action, and character growth for a thoroughly thrilling read. At the same time, he goes to town with narrative games and metafictive whimsy, all couched in Alcatraz’s utterly accessible, wiseacre voice" — Horn Book
