More like "from the book," actually. At this school year's first LEGO Club meeting, we built creations inspired by scenes from books. Some were classics, like The Night Before Christmas.
Or this race (if only we could remember the name of the book . . .)
Others were new favorites, such as Louis Sachar's Newbery Award-winning Holes. (With an assist from Dr. Who's TARDIS--what better way to escape juvie in the desert?)
Or Clariel, part of Garth Nix's Old Kingdom series.
A couple were mash-ups--hey there, Dr. Who!--with one many-tentacled monster from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea menacing a jail.
And, finally, one can only be termed a "future bestseller" since it may not have come from a book (yet).
But of course, the most important part of any book is the pages and pages and lines and lines of words. So, here's to you, written text!
Have a great holiday weekend!

This was such fun! Around 70 people danced, watched and otherwise and enjoyed the rousing talents of the Walker Family Band. There's nothing like swinging your partner and do-si-do-ing in the early evening light. We hope to make this an annual event--maybe you can come next time!
We had a great time at the Barn Dance on August 26th. About 70 people came to do-si-do and swing their partner and promenade around the library courtyard. We had a great house band, the Walker family! (Yes, the walkers taught us to dance!). Below are some pictures of what we hope will be an annual event.
