This book on Lego building was a huge hit at our house. It is pretty straight forward in it's description and is exactly as the blurb describes it. The book is pages and pages of building ideas and instructions for building various types of cars and trucks. I spent quite a bit of time looking through the book and I was impressed with all of the variation.
My boys are eleven and they spent hours putting together ideas from this book. (The Model T was a big hit). Some of the directions are a little more advanced and I don't know if children younger than 8-9 would be able to do these. Especially since they are not sets and you have to put them together from the miscellaneous Lego pieces laying around. The graphics and pictures are nice and the directions easy to follow (at least for the above mentioned age group).
I am glad we picked this book up as it was a good quality book and it has provided numerous hours of entertainment for my children.
