Summary

A whole army of evil Librarians! And Alcatraz Smedry has only his friend, Bastille; a few pairs of glasses; and an unlimited supply of exploding teddy bears to help him defend the island of Mokia.

Even Alcatraz's extraordinary talent for breaking things may not be enough to defeat the evil Librarians' giant robots. Can Alcatraz find a way to save the Free Kingdoms?

Like Sanderson, but not this

I like Brandon Sanderson’s work, but sadly this was aimed at too young an audience for me.
