“Spaceships, pirates, dragons & more!”

Brickbot and Megs are back, and they’re bringing with them a whole host of new ideas for your current Lego collection in The LEGO Adventure Book: Volume 2. Half Lego building guide, half comic book adventure, this sturdy hardcover volume is sure to be a fast favorite for the Lego fan in your life.

The book is set up to be read from cover to cover, with an ongoing storyline that coincides with the various models featured. Told in comic book style panels featuring actual Lego bricks, the storyline features the main characters from Volume 1, Megs and Brickbot. Megs (based on author Megan H. Rothrock) is a Lego Idea Lab builder, and Brickbot is her trusty robot pal. When one of Megs’ creations (the Transport-o-lux) accidentally opens a rift to another dimension, Megs must take off after the evil Destructor who passed through.

Much like a Creator creates new items, a Destructor is set on destroying. Megs follows the Destructor’s trail of destruction around the world in her quest to send him back where he belongs. As she meets new Lego creators in all different genres and nations, she helps to put the destroyed collections back together, and learns a bit about their creators as well. As she helps rebuild, she collects plans for these imaginative Lego models as well, giving readers step by step instructions and handy tips for making those and other creations at home.

These models are sure to be a favorite features for Lego builders young and old. Ranging from the very simple, such as a cute little wheelbarrow, to the very complex, like a massive electric dragon train, they really jumpstart your imagination and broaden your expectations of what you can do with a pile of bricks. There’s a really nice range of types of models as well, making sure there’s a little something for everyone, regardless of interest. There are cool flyers, a sweet retro car, a massive cargo ship, an adorable gingerbread house, and even a movie camera, all with those easy to understand instructions included.

The LEGO Adventure Book: Volume 2 is a winning combination of cool Lego action and some killer building ideas. Packed with almost forty different sets of step-by-step instructions for some really imaginative models, it’s a great choice for the Lego creators in your life.
