Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians

Alcatraz Smedry is 13 years old.  He has a strange talent of breaking things.  That includes breaking a stove handle that leads to burning down his foster family's kitchen.  When a mysterious package arrives full of magical sand and an evil librarian in disguise steals it life gets weird.   Fortunately he meets his grandfather. 

Brandon Sanderson intended to make a funny fast paced adventure.  He definitely succeeded.  This book is a lot like Fergus Crane.  Speaking of which, I am going to review another book by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell called Hugo Pepper soon.
