Cool Robots ($12.99) shows kids how to make new things out of the LEGO bricks that they already have. Turn cars into hovercrafts and trucks into robots. Make your own robot family - and pets! - and build a home for them. And when you're ready for an adventure, take your LEGO spaceship for a flight. Learn how to do it all in Sean Kenny's wonderful, hands-on book. Children of all ages will let their imaginations run wild as they learn that there are no limits to what can be created with LEGO.

Sean has created a great website for LEGO fans too: www.mocpages.com. (MOC stands for My Own Creations.) On the website, fans can share pictures and descriptions of their own creations!  Try it!
