Monuments Men   LEGO Ideas Bppl

Two movies that are widely expected to become blockbusters arrive in theaters today. However well they fare at the box office, they have already sent related books into Amazon’s top ten. For adults, there’s George Clooney’s The Monuments Men. For kids, it’s The LEGO Movie

#7 The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History, Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter, (Hachette/Back Bay)

#8 The LEGO Ideas Book, Daniel Lipkowitz, (Penguin/DK) —  Even though the Junior Novel tie-in (Scholastic) appeared on last week’s NYT Middle Grade list, it’s only at #474 on Amazon’s rankings. It seems kids, or at least their parents, are more interested in creating their own LEGO worlds, than in reading tie-ins.

Fortunately, there are many more titles you can pull out of the stacks that relate to both movies.  For Monuments Men, see our earlier post. And, of course, there are dozens of LEGO titles, including Lisa’s favorites.
