A Book Review: Alcatraz versus the Scrivener's Bones

Title: Alcatraz versus the Scrivener's Bones
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
Length: 322

Quality Rating: 9
Content Rating: PG

This book continues the hilarity and wonderfulness of the Alcatraz series. Alcatraz, Grandpa Smedry, and Bastille all come back as well as new characters. We learn more about the Librarians and the different factions that exist within them, and we feel a foreshadowing that perhaps there is a reason why Alcatraz Smedry thinks he is such a bad person. I read this book in a morning instead of doing homework I really should have been doing, so I highly recommend it to everyone! Especially if you want a quick, enjoyable, and hilarious read. Just don't start with this book. Start with the first book, Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians. Don't say I didn't warn you.

This is rated PG because of fantasy violence and deceptive undead librarians who are trying to convince them to give up their souls. However, it's definitely good for older elementary schoolers who have read beyond their shelves and those of us who still have young hearts.
