Description
Return to Al Capone's Alcatraz with Newbery Honor-winning author Gennifer Choldenko in this charming addition to the beloved series about the son of a prison guard.Moose Flanagan lives on a famous island in California: Alcatraz, home to some of the most dangerous prisoners in the United States in the 1930s. It's the summer before he starts high school, and Moose is going to play a lot of baseball and win a spot on the high school team. But he still needs to watch his special older sister, Natalie—and then the warden asks Moose to look after his two-faced, danger-loving daughter, Piper. In the cell house there are rumors that the cons will a strike, and that Moose's father might step up to a new job. Moose is worried: What will this mean for their family, especially for Natalie, who's had some scary run-ins with prisoners? Then the unthinkable happens: Natalie winds up someplace she should never, ever go. And Moose has to rescue her.Don't miss the rest of the Tales from Alcatraz series!Al Capone Does My ShirtsAl Capone Shines My ShoesAl Capone Does My Homework

      • content: Two things are clear to Moose Flanagan: Living near criminals like Al Capone on Alcatraz with a prison strike looming and watching his special needs sister will leave little time to get a spot on his high school baseball team. Narrator Kirby Heyborne's intuitive vocal choices channel an unforgettable summer in 1936. He exposes the story's layers of conflict using changes in cadence and tone that reflect the historical details and events. Moose cares for his sister, and the responsibility of her care weighs heavily. Heyborne gives their relationship verve and treats it with reverence. When Natalie gets lost in the cell house, Moose's mission to save her will have listeners glued to their headphones. S.H. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
