Overview

Creator of the bestselling The Brick Bible: A New Spin on the Old Testament and The Brick Bible: The New Testament, author Brendan Powell Smith offers a new take on American history. For more than a decade, Smith has honed his masterful work using LEGO(R) to re-create scenes from the Bible. Now, he turns his attention to unforgettable US presidential assassinations, both fatal and failed. Rediscover some of the most profound attacks that have occurred throughout US history involving the notorious assassinations on Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy. But did you also know that Richard Paul Pavlick sought to assassinate President Kennedy in 1960, though at the last minute he suddenly changed his mind? Or, that an unknown assailant desperately tried to murder Lincoln just eight months before his fatal night at Ford's Theatre? In addition, Smith reveals failed murder attempts against such presidents as Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and most recently, the 2011 attempt against President Barack Obama.

With over four hundred highly detailed illustrations, Smith captivates the authenticity of these assassinations (re-creating famous photographs and oral history) while simultaneously demonstrating a creative new medium. Whether a historian or a LEGO(R) enthusiast, readers of all ages will surely be enthralled with Brendan Powell Smith's latest brick creation!

    ASSASSINATION! THE BRICK CHRONICLE OF ATTEMPTS ON THE LIVES OF T

    ASSASSINATION! THE BRICK CHRONICLE OF ATTEMPTS ON THE LIVES OF TWELVE US PRESIDENTS by Brendan Powell Smith is an entertaining History. What this author can do with Lego's is amazing! Not only is this title entertaining but educational as well. A uniquely powerful way for youngsters to learn history using Lego's as graphics. I learned stuff I didn't know, as my grandchildren say " I am over the hill,but not too old".....I would encourage you to check out "Assassination!" I don't think you will regret your choice of reading material. If you wish to learn more on the history of the twelve US presidents who either had attempted assassinations or where assassinated, than this is the book for you. Youngsters will enjoy this telling of history as well as older children. Who doesn't enjoy Lego's,right? A very enterprising way to teach history. Please be aware some parents may have issues with the content,due to some of the graphic and gory information. But afterall, this is history! A joy to read! Well written, once again using beautiful graphics. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    RATING: 4.5

    HEAT RATING: Mild*Some graphic and gory information*
