Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson
Alcatraz has lived in a series of foster homes his entire life. He seems to have a talent for breaking things which tends to annoy his foster parents. But on 13th birthday a man shows up claiming to be Alcatraz's real grandfather. Grandpa Smedry reveals that Alcatraz is part of a family with a long history of fighting against the evil librarians who are working to control all of the world. Furthermore, he tells Alcatraz that his ability to break things is actually his talent which will be very helpful in defeating the librarians. Alcatraz is armed only with his eyeglasses and a pack of very small dinosaurs as he heads off to fight the librarians.
