A few weeks ago as I was straightening up the library at closing time, I came across BRICK SHAKESPEARE: THE COMEDIES. I thought that this was such a fun way to read some of Shakespeare’s plays.

Then I became curious…how many other books did we have with stories told via LEGO bricks? I was delighted to find the following books in our collection!
