FC: Al Capone Does My Shirts Retail By Hayden Wooton
1: Al Capone Does My Shirts Retail. This book will tell you everything you need to know about Al Capone Does My Shirts.It tells you about the characters and what their role is in the story. Also it gives a great summary of the book and two pages about Al Capone.
2: Al Capone Does My Shirts is about a boy named Moose that moved to Alcatraz with his family. Also his sister Natalie has special needs so that makes it even harder for him to get used to living on the Rock.
3: After a couple of days of living on Alcatraz he meets a boy named Scout that is his age. After talking to Scout he finds out that the boys on the island play baseball on Mondays after school so he fits right on in. Soon on after he meets more children on the island such as Piper, Annie,Jimmy and Theresa. Piper is the warden's daughter.She is always thinking up a dangerous plans.In addition she is very smart and clever. She plays a huge rule in this book because she is the one who sets up the the laundry service. So it would not be called Al Capone Does My Shirts without her.
4: Moose is the main character and has the most important role in the story, and it wouldn't be a story with out him. He is 12 years old and huge for his age. His real name is Matthew. Also he is very kind and cares for his sister.
5: One of his favorite thing to do is play baseball. Natalie on the other hand is not very bright. She is very solitary and loves numbers. One of the only things she cares about is sorting buttons. She is autistic. This book is base in the spring of 1935. Mainly the spring but there is a bit of it is in the summer. Most of the scenes are in the day, but there are some scenes are at night.
7: Al Capone a notorious gangster from Chicago. He was born in New York. Al was know by many names big Al, Scarface and Snorky. At the time Moose lived there Big Al was locked up in prison. Him and Moose wright notes to each other closer to the end of the book. They communicate by putting letters in Moose's laundry because scarface does his laundry for him. Snorky also helps Moose get his sister into Esther P. Marinoff at the end of the book. So Al Capone has a big role in this book.
8: There are many reasons Al went to prison, But instead of talking about what he did good such as he opened the first soup kitchen in Chicago. As you can see it is a short list of what he did good.
9: as most people know Al Capone was a bootlegger, gangster and a mob boss, but yet he was only sent to jail for tax evasion. His favorite weapon is the Thompson sup machine gun. He has a wife and one son. Before he was sent to Alcatraz he was sent to prison in Atlanta. Since he was able to run his business from prison. Also he was moved to Alcatraz because he got away with bringing silk couches and a plush bed to prison with him,so he was living like a king.
10: My Favorite Scene was when Moose was playing baseball. Moose was up to bat first. Strike one. Strike two. Then on the last swing crack a ground ball right to third Moose gets to first.
11: After Moose's team strikes strikes out Moose goes into the field. Moose is playing second base right now. Crack a kid hits a ground ball right to Moose. Moose fields the ball and hurls it right to the first base man, Moose first double play! This is my favorite scene in the book.
12: If i were in AlCapone Does My Shirts I would not really effect the big picture, but I would effect a lot of the smaller things. These things are Moose would not have played second, I would have. Sense I am a lot like Scout I don't think I would change the story much. I would be a good friend of Moose's so I would have a big role in the story. I would help Moose with Natalie.Unlike Scout I would live on the island. So I would have a lot more time to support Moose with his decisions .
13: unlike Moose I would care a lot more about meeting Al Capone.
