" The Lego scenes were an interesting illustration idea, but the text was dull. " said.

" It's not just a collection of super cool Lego builds, it's also a *surprisingly decent* children's medieval English history book! " said.

" British Medieval history, with help from Legos. " said.

" Fun! I didn't know that when King John got excommunicated, people had to hang coffins from trees until they could bury them--for years. Or that Cambridge started with three hangings at Oxford. There's a few boring pages concerning who fought who politically that I think would lose a child reader, but otherwise the facts are written in a way a kid could understand. " said.

"It is a simple introduction to the medieval history of England and my personal opinion is that it would be helpful if you already had some knowledge of what happened during the medieval times in England. For instance, I already knew some things about the War of the Roses, had some knowledge about Jerusalem, Wales, Ireland and Scotland. I had also heard about the Battle of Hastings, William the Conqueror , Robin Hood, Roger Bacon, Richard of York and William Wallace. What this book did for me was present these things in a neat timeline to understand the sequence of events. The book does omit a lot of information but out of necessity. Personally, I find the LEGO setups to be of no real use other than to liven up the book with vivid colours without which I suspect the reader would find it another dry reading of a history book even though presented in short summaries." said.

"Whoever said you can't make history interesting or accessible to young readers obviously doesn't like Lego. Actually, you don't even have to like Lego to like this book. Greyson Beights has assembled an all star team of historians and Lego Builders to make this book happen, and it's a pretty quick and pretty fun read. There isn't a lot of depth but then, you really don't want all the nitty gritty of the entire period the book covers. As a jumping off point, it will attract readers of all ages and create some interest in both how the larger scenes were built as well as the story the scenes tell. Overall, a good book that, yes, glosses over a lot, but is, ahem, well constructed for the most part.

Note: book received via Amazon Vine in exchange for review.
