Children's Book Review: RICK BRICK AND THE QUEST TO SAVE BRICKPORT by Tamony Hall

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge,from Skyhorse Publishing, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it



There's something about Legos  that kid's can't get enough of!

Nor can adults, hence the many unofficial books and adaptations..

This new book is perfect for a stocking stuffer, or for reading on the long road for holiday vacations!


Synopsis:

Rick Brick is an architect who remembers the days when Brickport was gleaming and prosperous. Today, the city crumbles under corruption, poverty, and crime, but a powerful young billionaire has recently stepped in to run the capital. The billionaire demands that Rick design and build a magnificent structure at the center of the city, something to bring the city back to its original splendor.

But the billionaire has ulterior motives. The last brick to be used to finish the building is The Onyx Brick, older than the universe and holding all evil. Once the structure is finished, it will destroy the universe. It’s up to Rick to find The Golden Brick, which holds all good, before The Onyx Brick is put into place. Rick and his friend must cross through a portal and into three different brick dimensions to search for The Golden Brick. From the land of the dinosaurs to deep space, Rick will face great challenges and overcome hurdles with his quick mind and clever brick building. Will Rick Brick save the day? Or will Brickport, and the rest of the universe, be destroyed forever?

Review:

This book is a bit over 100 pages, so it is short enough for kids to read over the holidays, yet you might be surprised just HOW quickly they get through it! Like all grand Lego adventures, there is a quest, friends to help save the day from the bad guy, and a hero to save the day. Pretty much the core of all great fairy tales, but don't tell the boys that, they won't want to read this fun book! The book teaches some important lessons along the way and both boys and girls will be wanting to tell their friends (and you) all about this tale! So don't forget to pick it up (or download the ebook version into the kid's tablet) and be the cool parent this Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons!
