Steampunk Lego Book Giveaway and World Book Day Giveaway Hop

World Book Day is coming up on April 23rd and we're celebrating with a giveaway of the book Steampunk Lego, and we're celebrating with a group of bloggers as part of the World Book Day Giveaway Hop. Be sure to stop by and see what books the other bloggers are offering as prizes.
Filled with dirigibles and floating cities, penny-farthings and pirate ships, curiosities and robots galore, Steampunk LEGO is an illustrated collection of Victorian-era sci-fi treasures, all built from LEGO.

Curated by award-winning LEGO builder and special effects master Guy Himber, this full-color coffee table book showcases an eclectic variety of models designed by dozens of the world's best LEGO artists.

Grab your brass goggles and join fictional explorer Sir Herbert Jobson as he travels the world cataloguing its technological wonders for Queen Victoria. His entertaining descriptions of an imaginative alternate history bring these delightful LEGO models to swashbuckling life.
The author of the book, Guy Himber, recently started a Kickstarter campaign for some LEGO-compatible accessories. Do check out the campaign. There are some cool-looking mini-fig costumes you or your kids might be interested in getting. I'm not affiliated with the campaign at al.
As with all giveaways in the hop, this one has an end date of 11:59pm EDT on 4/24, the day after World Book Day. We're open to residents of the US and Canada. If the winner is a resident of Canada , they'll need to answer a skill question before they can officially claim the prize. See Giveaway Rules for additional rule details.

  4. My gosh, it's been so long! I remember painstakingly putting together a pirate ship with my cousins, and also creating a soccer field. (But I'm pretty sure that I'm mostly created very square houses. :p )

  21. My youngest used to leave her legos all over the place and they really hurt when you step on them. Since I lost her to suicide on 10/26/15, I would love to step on them again, but each time I step on one of my grandson's, it does bring me a good memory of Heather.

  24. I remember when the first space Lego came out. The clear blue pieces were new and awesome. They also had a lot of fun new pieces I had never seen before. My brother got a couple of sets for Christmas, but I played with it as much as he did. I still love Lego and have gotten a couple of the new 'girl' sets the last two years at Christmas. I have just as much fun today as I did at 9 years old. Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity!
