DK Publishing’s LEGO Build Your Own Adventure (BYOA) series turns the classic best-selling LEGO building blocks into building books.

Currently, the BYOA series includes six themes:

  • LEGO Friends

  • LEGO City
  • LEGO NEXO Knights
  • LEGO Star Wars
  • LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes

Each hardbound is 80 pages and comes in a slipcase that protects the book and provides space for a box of related LEGO parts. The books provide a fully immersive experience into their featured worlds. For example, the LEGO Friends BYOA offers fan-sourced building ideas and bricks to build an exclusive model that appears throughout the book. Not to be outdone, the LEGO Star Wars BOYA offers more than 50 build ideas and includes a rebel pilot minifigures and exclusive Y-Wing Starfighter.
