Publisher Description:

LEGO builders, rejoice! The celebrated author of Brick History, Brick City, Brick Wonders, Brick Flicks, Brick History and Brick Vehicles is back with this new title that offers 40 original, ingenious, and unique buildable projects to make from LEGO pieces. In Brick Animals, anyone with a drawer full of LEGO bricks will be able to build and customize cute animal models, including a cute cat, wild swan, big polar bear, friendly monkey, and more. Based on the brick selection found in some of LEGOs Classic series, each project is a great way to test out unusual building techniques or to mix up pieces from existing kits that have already been broken up. Free your inner architect with these fun projects that really get your creative juices flowing. You can follow the instructions to the letter or go off in your own directionits your choice! Many of the designs in these books use fewer than 100 bricks, so you dont need a lot of bricks to get started. Discover loads fun projects showcasing advanced techniques that are perfect for every LEGO enthusiast.

I remember many hours spent with my brothers around a large communal bin of building bricks, building anything that came to mind. I also remember wishing that there were instructions to follow for building cool designs, but new sets only came with directions for one model. Problem solved! These books each contain 40 designs to build. Flipping through the book, I found myself thinking how neat it was to see traditional pieces being used in inventive ways. Some building idea books hinge on having very specialized pieces from licensed sets, but as I flipped through these, I saw only one especially unique piece. Everything else was built from pieces I know I can easily find, even in slightly older bins of bricks. The step by step directions are computer-generated illustrations, just like the ones that come in brand new sets. Choose from 40 animal designs like a horse, lion, and fox; build 40 things that go like a tow truck, concrete mixer, model T, or moon buggy; create 40 mythological and fantastical beasts like dragons, ogres, or sphinx; build 40 different buildings like a gingerbread house, lighthouse, or ice castle; or create 30 pet designs like a canary, goat, or bulldog. Breathe new life into that big box of bricks with these fun, colorful books. 96 pp, sc. - Laura
