More Info
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.

What do you do when your neighbors are a bunch of hit men, con men, and mad dog murderers? Well, if you're Moose Flanagan, you ask the most notorious convict of them all, Al Capone, for help. But when that convict comes through for youÑand then asks you for a favor in returnÑsuddenly it's a whole different ball game. Picking up where the NewberyÐHonor winning Al Capone Does My Shirts left off, this lively second romp featuring Moose, his friends, and some of Alcatraz's "finest" is just as satisfying as the first.

Sterling Publishing welcomes our new partnership with the legendary artist Robert Ingpen. For his first title in a brand-new affiliation with Sterling, renowned children's artist Robert Ingpen presents a lush new edition of one of the world's most famous stories: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Lewis Carroll's classic began as a tale told to a group of children on a picnic in 1862. Three years later, it was finally published, and its curious effect of half-dream, half-nightmare instantly captured the imagination of readers of all ages. This new edition brings together the unabridged text with more than 70 stunning illustrations by Ingpen, each reflecting the artist's unique style and extraordinary imagination--and the spirit of this eternally popular masterpiece.
