This full colour coffee table book is styled as a diary of the fictional Victorian-era British explorer, Captain Herbert Jobson, as he catalogs the wonders of the world for the Queen and combines brick-built marvels with a swashbuckling narrative, fascinating historical trivia and authentic 19th-century detailing to bring this fantastical story to life.

This book is similar to Beautiful Lego in one aspect, it is not an instruction manual, but rather an idea book. First, the author explains a little bit about what steampunk is. Then there are sections by type such as trains, cars, and mono wheels. On each page is an explanation of each item using very big words and some history. Some of the pictures are blurry which is unacceptable and causes it to lose a star.

This book does have a lot to offer for junior high age kids and up. It is too complicated and the language too difficult for the younger crowd. There is tons of history about the Victorian era. The Lego creations are interesting and inspiring. I would recommend this for die hard Lego fans. I would also highly recommend this for the classroom library as a high interest book that teaches about a fascinating time in history.
