Okay so right off the bat I'm going to say that this is going to be a really short review because despite the fact that the book was 96 pages very few pages had any writing. However, this in itself does not make the book any less of an enjoyable read.
You see a couple years ago my brother got me hooked on the British television show Top Gear and ever since then I've been quite amused by the three hosts, one of which is the author of this book James May also known as Captain Slow. So when I did a library search for books by him for my brother to read I had to put this one on hold.
I had an obsession with LEGO as a kid and even now if you put me near a set I'll still play with them. There is just something about LEGO that makes you want to sit down and construct something regardless of your age.
This little book chronicles the events leading up to, during and after the construction of this magnificent building which was sadly demolished not too long after its construction in 2009. 1,000 volunteers from all over the UK helped build the 20ft structure that now holds the Guinness World Record as the largest LEGO house in the world.
I enjoyed this little bit of pop culture in book form. It was fun learning about the construction of the house and his reasons for building it. I would recommend this as a gift for kids and maybe the older LEGO aficionados in the world.
