Format: Paperback
I am 37 years old and a father of a young Bionicle fan. While when I watch Bionicle it is still geared to a younger set that I can't really get into it with my son, I can completely understand why the 5-12 demographic are so drawn to it and I would have loved it as a kid myself. I was definitely into this type of thing in my youth as well as a book lover and loved the D&D books almost as much as playing.

I wanted to give some perspective before I gave the review. I think this is one of the best supplemental books/guides I have every come across in Sci-Fi/Comics/Toys and I have read/bought a lot in my day. First off the quality of the book is awesome. The cover, the binding, and the page quality is great. Just holding it is fun. Then you open it and it is almost 100 pages of content, cover to cover. It really is packed with a ton of text along with the pictures. Even the point of view and the style of the narrative are great. This is not one of those "Encyclopedia of xxx" books where it is mostly white space and pictures to fill a big hardcover to try and justify a $30 price tag. I read the first few pages and actually learned things that I couldn't figure out and it helped me to talk to my son. (Finally figured out that Mata Nui is the name of bionicle universe creator and the name of a place. And that he created Makuta and that they were not brothers.)

For younger readers, it is very entertaining and well written with good vocabulary for young readers (flipping through just now I found the words: dank, allying, encompassing, reckless, descending. Those are great vocabulary words for 3rd and 4th graders). Plus it reinforces the principles of Unity and Duty which are great qualities and at the center of the beliefs of the good guys in the Bionicle universe.

Format: Paperback
This book is great book for BIONICLE fans, containing the entire BIONICLE storyline from 2001 to 2008. It has the years shown in this order:2004, 2005, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, and 2008. It shows almost all of the sets, it has the storyline from Makuta's point of view, and the only map of the Matoran Universe. It is also complementary to Mata Nui's Guide to Bara Magna. Basically, I would recommend this book to all BIONICLE fans.

My 9 year-old is a bionicle lover (and loves to read) and has read this book over and over again. It really tells the history of the bionicle character and is a great resource book, especially given the price!
