The Alcatraz vs. The Evil Librarians series is written by the famous author Brandon Sanderson who obviously had way too much fun writing the series. Written from a first person point of view he pretends to be a boy using the author Brandon Sanderson as a cover for his books. The tone of this series was much lighter than that of the other books that I had read by this author, as well as being his first YA series that I had read.
The person who “writes” these books is a young boy raised in a series of foster homes who has a disastrous penchant for breaking things that keeps him moving through homes and people. He has never had any contact with his parents until one day he receives a bag of….sand?
But apparently important sand, for no sooner does it appear than so do a host of people who want it, Librarians who apparently like to spread false information that keeps the world under their secret control and a group of people who live in the hidden free kingdoms who still resist their rule.
This series was wonderful comedic relief and I would highly recommend it for anyone who like to read for fun and needs something light and amusing. The writing style was easy enough for children and witty enough for any age.
