Trainboy read it aged 11
My son read this when he was around 8 years old and I wanted to encourage him to read longer books than the 'easy readers' he was used to. The quirky style, hilariously unrealistic storyline and many illustrations really appealed to him. My 7 year old is now reading it and, being a fan of Tom Gates style books, is excited to have discovered this new series. A brilliant book to read to your child, or for them to enjoy alone. Definitely recommend.

I read it to Trainboy aged 11 & to Pokeboy aged 7
I received this book for my 11 year old who is a huge Lego fan, although it was actually enjoyed more by my 7 year old. They both loved the quizzes, and were inspired to build by the fantastic quality photos throughout. My younger son enjoyed reading about the characters in the film, although my older son was not so interested in the descriptions, and would have liked there to be more building suggestions/ideas included. Perhaps more easy to follow for those who have already seen the film.

This is one of my boys' all time favourites. We used to regularly borrow it from our library, and even bought it when the library had a sale to clear out old stock! The story line is amusing but the pictures even more so. It tells the tale of a boy who receives a construction kit (not dissimilar from a few available on the market currently) and he just keeps collecting more of it and using it for very real purposes that benefit all his family. Wonderful for budding engineers or just boys who love building. The surprise ending has wonderful detail which my boys poured over for ages. Brilliant entertaining book that many families will relate to.
