An unofficial LEGO novel

Rick Brick is an architect who loves – and is loved – by his city. But Brickport just isn’t the town it used to be. As Rick wanders the streets of his crumbling city, he dreams of what he could do to revitalize the city, if only he was given the chance. Unfortunately, it looks like Rick and his partner Rita will soon be out of business…until a billionaire named Dr. Dubloon makes him an offer he can’t refuse. For one million dollars, Rick and Rita will build a giant tower at the center of the city.

Of course, Rick is overjoyed at the prospect of both being able to stay in business, and helping to bring Brickport back to its former splendor at the same time. But right from the start, things seem a little off with Dr. Dubloon – and it isn’t just his substandard villainous laugh. Rick isn’t allowed to hire any workers, and the builders that Dr. Dubloon brings on board are like zombie shells. Something truly odd is going on, and it’s up to Rick to figure out what it is – and how to stop it – before it’s too late.

Kids love LEGOS – heck, adults love LEGOS too. Rick Brick and the Quest to save Brickport blends the coolness of LEGOS with an adventuresome story that kids will love. Rick Brick is a great main character – he’s smart, he’s kind, and he really knows his way around LEGO bricks. As he works to figure out the evil scheme, and does everything he can to stop it, Rick needs to work with friends old and new, and his knowledge of brick building gets him out of many a scrape. Though the book is pretty brief at just over a hundred pages, it’s a story that young readers will enjoy. It’s a great way to transfer a love of their favorite toy into a lifelong love of reading.
