Enter the magical world of fairy tales retold through LEGO bricks! Filled with creative and whimsical settings built from this universally celebrated toy, this book presents an all-new retelling of the original Grimm's fairy tales of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Hansel and Gretel, and more! With one thousand color photographs, this inspired adaptation uses intricately designed brick sets to present some of the most cherished and widely told stories of all time. Watch the clock strike twelve as Cinderella leaves her glass slipper behind at the ball, and see just how long brick Rapunzel's hair can grow as she waits in her tower.

Watch the seven dwarfs plot against the evil Queen and her brick looking glass, and try to find your way home with Hansel's path of brick breadcrumbs. This imaginative take on these age-old fairy tales maintains the authentic text of the Grimm classics but shines a creative new light with fun brick construction! Fairy tales in brick will be a welcome addition to your picture book collection, bringing a creative twist to readers both young and old.

Comments about Brick Fairy Tales:

Awesome book for my lego loving 6 year old. He loves the illustrations but finds the text a bit too small to read on his own. A lovely book nevertheless for bed time reading
