Did you like "Mysterious Benedict Society," "Series of Unfortunate Events," and the titles of Pseudonymus Bosch? This might be right up your alley. Alcatraz is not just the most famous prison in the United States, but the name of the main character, who has a talent for breaking things--every thing he touches, in fact. Good, or bad? The evil librarians are on his trail, and they Rule the World. Alcatraz's birthday gift of a bag of sand will provide them with dominionthat they seek, and he has only two weapons and a very little bit of time.
