A superb example of a Dorling Kindersley special! We loved reading this book from start to end, and with an exclusive 60th anniversary printed brick included to add to the LEGO collection. Creative Steps I thoroughly adored The LEGO Book, and the great thing is it isn't just a 'read and put back on the bookshelf' type of book - this is a coffee table book; something you WANT to display and have out, and look through regularly. Watch as your friends and family pick it up and discover something they remember from their past - it's lovely to see! Toys World Reviews This is the perfect gift for anyone, big or small GQ online
