A big favorite in the elementary library, had to order 2 more copies because the current one is so loved but the kids. Really fun to read through, showing legos develop over the years.

This book was one of the first lego books I ever owned and listen. It blew my little 7 year old mind. I've held onto it as a source of inspiration for when I want to build something, so it's great for all ages.

Market Hampden's local dentist goes up in a tree. No one knows why he climbs it. He refuses to come down. This comical short story was supposed to be part of a series that apparently never developed. It's really a shame because I may never know what happened in the teaser thrown out by the final paragraph. I enjoyed the setting and would really love to read more stories set there.
