Like most of the things No Starch Press does, I love this book. The photos are gorgeous and the book itself is a nice square hardback. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. My five year old son and I easily built the gingerbread house together (pictured above, with a few color swaps). I’d say a typically eight year old could do most of the models with only minor assistance.
My only complaint, and really this goes for most of the LEGO books, is the challenge of getting the right pieces. Most models in the book require at least a couple of specialty pieces, in most cases multiples and in specific colors. The average child simply won’t have enough of these pieces to build a model. Even I (an adult with decades of LEGOS) had to substitute a few pieces for ones I didn’t have.
In short, few people have the exact pieces to build these models without specifically ordering them for the project from a website like BrickLink and BrickOwl, or the rare times that a LEGO Store’s Pick a Brick wall has what you need.
Chris McVeigh has amazing skill and artistic ability in creating Lego creations that are sturdy and beautiful. No Starch Press makes beautiful books for the AFOL who has a Lego Book Library.
This book is amazing and just in time for the holiday Lego prep! Now to bricklink to get the bricks and plates needed to make some of these amazing ornaments.
My only wish is that No Starch Press and Chris McVeigh team up for even more great Lego books!
