Breakout! – Book Review


On an island in the middle of San Francisco Bay sits the toughest prison in the world – Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary.

Breakout! Escape from Alcatraz by Lori Haskins, Illustrated by Janet Hamlin, with photographs

STEP into Reading - Step 4 book for Grades 2-4

For twenty-eight years no one escaped from Alcatraz alive. Three men are now going to try to do the impossible: Frank Lee Morris and John and Clarence Anglin. They have been planning this for more than a year- will they be successful?

On June 11, 1962, at 9:30 P.M. the guard is coming down the hall and as he comes he makes a head count. They pretend to sleep, but they don’t because tonight is the night they are going to escape!

Some of their techniques in the escape plan: making a hole in a concrete wall, fashioning 4 fake heads with painted faces to place in the bed to buy time from the guards, using a concertina minus the keys to inflate their raft and making paddles from their wooden shelves from their cells.
.
Were they successful?
