Brick Fairy Tales & Myths

I thought the Brick Shakespeare was brilliant! What a great way to get young readers introduced to the Bard! Apparently I am not alone, as now we have even more Brick books to enjoy. The books are large hard cover story books done in a comic-book style with captions. But, instead of an illustration, you have a photograph staged with LEGO mini-figures and building bricks. The effect is like the movies. Faces are expressive and the scenery follows the dialogue. It just makes you want to read the entire thing!

Brick Fairy Tales include versions of Grimm's tales including: Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Hansel and Gretel, the Frog King, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Clever Hans, Godfather Death, Sweet Porridge, the Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces, and King Thrushbeard. (262pp) In the Greek Myths book, you are first introduced to the characters as you would find in a play. A portrait of each character is shown with a brief description. This is a useful page to flip to when the names get confusing. You will find the following stories (I shortened the full titles): Zeus, Prometheus/Pandora's Box, Phaeton, Hades/Persephone, Eurydice/Orpheus, Athena/Poseidon, Arachne, Perseus and Medusa/Atlas/Andromeda, Artemis and Apollo/Orion/Actaeon, Atlanta, Minotaur, Daedalus/Icarus, Tantalus, Sisyphus, Marathon, Narcissus, Heracles and Eurystheus/ 12 Labors/Admetus/Eurytus/Omphale/Deianira/Nessus/Iole, and Jason and the Golden Fleece. (259pp) The boxed set includes both books and a poster in a shiny, cardboard, vertical box for your shelf. Your children may even recognize some of the characters if they have LEGO playsets. These are just so much fun to look at, the literature is almost a bonus! ~ Sara
