Oh my gosh, another fantastic LEGO book. However, this one is about Medieval times. It explains history of the Middle Ages in England using, what else, LEGO scenes, which illustrate each scene or battle. Of all LEGO books I have read/reviewed, this one was or is my absolute favorite. This book takes the reader on a Medieval journey through English history using LEGO scenes.
