Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Children who love cars, trucks, and LEGO blocks will find plenty to enjoy in this colorful book…. This visually engaging book will attract little ones interested mainly in looking at cars and trucks, as well as older kids, who may actually follow the directions and build some of the projects.” —Booklist
School Library Journal
Gr 1–5—Crisp color photographs and diagrams show how to construct various vehicles with Lego blocks, including pocket-size cars and variations on an SUV. Some of the diagrams are confusing, but children with plenty of experience working with Legos should be able to follow the steps. Unfortunately, readers must scan the directions to identify needed pieces; there's no supply list at the beginning of each project. The text is limited. For example, a spread labeled "Taxis of all sizes" says, "If you don't have enough LEGO pieces to build a big car, try making the same car in a smaller size." The book is much narrower in focus than The Ultimate Lego Book (DK, 1999).—Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

My 8 yr old grandson loves these books, he has all three. Each book shows how to make new creations, using basic lego blocks that you already have. It is just like getting a new lego set. Highly recommend this book for your lego fan!

My Son loves legos so this came in handy

My son really was happy to find this at the bookstore. When Daddy came home he looked at the items and informed me; MOST of the pieces in there were not present in our extensive Lego collection. (they would have to be ordered, probably) We ended up bummed that none of the layouts were attainable for us. If you have special wind shield pieces etc, this MAY work for you!
