My 7yr old son like most boys loves Lego, I love the fact that Lego is bringing out books to capture this audience as well as it's so hard to get my son to read voluntarily. Tonight he didn't bring home a reader from school so suggested he may like to read this instead he jumped at the chance. He read this book really easily and was so proud of himself that he could read a book that didn't come from school. At the end of him reading I asked what he liked about the book he stated he like the pictures they are big, bright and colourful and he enjoyed seeing the characters he has in his Lego sets in the book as well.

This book is about a group of 3 crooks who want to break out of jail and their journey trying to carry this out and trying to avoid the police. The book is 32 pages long and would be loved by kids of all ages advanced readers from 6yrs old would be able to read this book quite easily and younger ones would love to just look through the book as the pictures are so vivid and explain the story very well.

I love Scholastic books they are always really good quality, I would not hesitate to get more in the series when I see them in the Lucky Book clubs the kids bring home from school.

My youngest has been claiming any Lego books coming into our house. This makes it difficult to get my eldest's opinion on books that are effectively readers for her. This book was no exception. I brought it home and when I next went to look for it, I could not find it. I asked both girls and my youngest said "Oh yes, I loved it. So it is mine". She wouldn't give up the location of the book.

Luckily for me, she has one hiding place in her room and that is exactly where the book was. So I was a bit sneaky and I took it back to show my eldest daughter. She was able to read the story, as it is written quite simply. There were a few story specific words that she stumbled with, but otherwise she got some good reading practice and she got to feel successful doing so.

I then went and re-hid the book for my youngest. A while later, I could hear that she was in her room so I crept up and peered around the corner. She was sitting on her floor looking at all the pictures in this book. The pictures are nice and clear and show the figures and the Lego world setting. When she finally noticed me, she looked quite sheepish about having the book.

We sat together and I asked if she would like to know what the story says. She then sat happily to find out what was happening in each of the pictures. She was thrilled with the story of the escape and all the dangers that the crooks face along the way. She liked all the modes of transport used too.

Recently I have seen this Lego set available for purchase, so I think this book would be an excellent companion piece to the Lego set. However, it's also a good story for Lego fans. It is simple enough for a new reader, and interesting enough for younger kids too. It would be great for summer holiday reading practice.
