Описание: The Newbery Honor Book and New York Times Bestseller that is historical fiction with a hint of mystery about living at Alcatraz not as a prisoner, but as a kid meeting some of the most famous criminals in our history. Al Capone Does My Shirts has become an instant classic for all kids to read Today I moved to Alcatraz, a twelve-acre rock covered with cement, topped with bird turd and surrounded by water. I'm not the only kid who lives here. There are twenty-three other kids who live on the island because their dads work as guards or cooks or doctors or electricians for the prison, like my dad does. And then there are a ton of murderers, rapists, hit men, con men, stickup men, embezzlers, connivers, burglars, kidnappers and maybe even an innocent man or two, though I doubt it. The convicts we have are the kind other prisons don't want. I never knew prisons could be picky, but I guess they can. You get to Alcatraz by being the worst of the worst. Unless you're me. I came here because my mother said I had to.

Описание: 1935 "I want to be on Alcatraz like I want poison oak on my private parts. But apparently nobody cares, because now I m Moose Flanagan, Alcatraz Island Boy all so my sister can go to the Esther P. Marinoff School, where kids wear their clothes inside out and there isn t a book in sight. Obedient Moose. I always do what I m supposed to do. " When Moose s family moves to Alcatraz Island so his father can work as a guard and his sister can attend a special school in San Francisco, he has to leave his friends behind. But it s worth it, right? If his sister, Natalie, can get help, maybe his family will finally be normal. But on Alcatraz his dad is so busy, he s never around. His mom s preoccupation with Natalie s condition (today, it would be called autism) is even worse now that there s no extended family to help. And of course, there s never enough money. When Moose meets Piper, the cute daughter of the warden, he knows right off she s trouble. But she s also strangely irresistible. All Moose wants to do is protect Natalie, live up to his parents expectations and stay out of trouble. But on Alcatraz, trouble is never very far away."

When Moose meets Piper, the cute daughter of the Warden, he knows right off she s trouble. But she s also strangely irresistible. All Moose wants to do is protect Natalie, live up to his parents expectations, and stay out of trouble. But on Alcatraz, trouble is never very far away.
