Transcript of Al Capone Does My Shirts
The story takes place in 1935 on Alcatraz Island which is located just off the coast of San Francisco. Alcatraz is small island with a very large prison for all the worst criminals . . .
Including Al Capone, the most
famous criminal of all.
Moose Flanagan is a 12 year old boy who just moved to the island of Alcatraz. Moose has a sister named Natalie and he loves baseball. At first Moose didn't want to move to Alcatraz but over time he adjusts to his surroundings.
When the story began
When the story began, Moose had just moved to the island of Alcatraz with his family. He is looking looking around his new home and describing what he thinks life will be like on Alcatraz Island.
My favorite quote from the book
My favorite quote from the book was in the very first paragraph: " ~ so close to the city of San-Francisco I can hear them call the score of a baseball game on Marina Green. Okay, not that close. But still." ~ Moose Flanagan
I liked this quote because it shows that shows that Moose has a funny personality and tells us about his love of baseball. It caught my attention and made me want to read on.
Piper is the Warden's daughter. She is very mischeivious and is always trying to break the rules. Piper is also a straight "A" student. She and Moose are the only two kids who attend school off the island.

Natalie is Moose's "ten year old sister". She is actually 16 but her mother says that she is 10. Natalie has a mental disability and is trying to get into a fancy school to help her get better. Natalie enjoys counting, lemon cake and books with large indexes.
A interpersonal conflict example throughout the book was between Moose and Piper. Moose had a lot of conflict with Piper because it always seemed like she was in his business and trying to get him in trouble. Moose didn't really like Piper because she was so nosey and could cause trouble.
A internal conflict example from the story was when Moose saw his sister Natalie holding hands with a convict. Moose was debating if he was going to yell out at the convict or wait for him to go away.
A external conflict example from the story was when Moose moved to Alcatraz and he was having a hard time adjusting to his new surroundings.
One resolution was to get Natalie away from the convicts and to make sure that she got into the school in San-Francisco.
The conflict was resolved in the book. The conflict was resolved when Moose made friends and started to play baseball again.
The conflict was resolved was resolved when Moose finally stood up to Piper and tells her to stop being so nosey.
Best and worst parts of the book
The best parts of the book are when the book has action and conflict. This makes it exciting. The worst parts of the book are when there isn't much action and it gets boring.
I would recommend this book to anyone 10 and up. This book is exciting because it has lots of action and conflict. As well, the characters are very interesting.
