Get caught up in the two most famous scary stories of all time depicted in LEGO bricks! Creep your way through the shadowy sets of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Bram Stoker’s Dracula in this amazing brick adaptation. With one thousand color photographs, these stories and their monsters come alive in full plastic horror!
Stare in awe as Dr. Frankenstein brings his brick monster to life in a risky science experiment, and brace yourself as the creature steps out into the world. Travel to Count Dracula’s giant brick castle in Transylvania, and beware as he taunts his prey in the night. Watch brick Van Helsing discover the cause of poor Lucy’s illness, and follow him as he prepares his plot to save her.
These classic horror stories are retold with a classic construction toy, staying true to their original forms in this modestly abridged collection. For young readers, LEGO adorers, and devotees to gothic literature, Brick Frankenstein and Dracula is a mesmerizing new take to the founding tales of fright!
