Clay likes to do things by the book- by the Knights’ Code book, to be exact. Clay practices his knightly skills for hours every day. He wants to be the best of the knights! Lance, on the other hand, would much rather play video games than study a book full of rules.He thinks a true knight goes with his gut. Who needs to practice?

One thing’s for sure: The other NEXO KNIGHTS(R) team members are sick of them arguing! Can Clay and Lance work together long enough to take down Jestro and his Magma Monsters?

Packed with techno-medieval adventure and LEGO-memorable characters, this book is perfect for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-graders who may still feel a bit intimidated by heftier chapter books.

Teamwork is the central theme of this particular Knights tale. The book holds 32 pages of story and still-shot imagery from the NEXO Knights television show, breaking down text into bite-sized paragraphs with manageable but not overly simplistic vocab. The origin of The Fortrex is also touched on with somewhat humorous flair (for readers and show enthusiasts who may not have known that it actually began as Ye Olde Royal RV.)

Fast-paced action and a wide variety of character personalities come together in a story that will likely hold the attention of any child between the ages of 6 and 8. And for those fans who happen to have the free Merlock 2.0 app, there are shields within this book that can be scanned to unlock various powers.

Another engaging story for LEGO enthusiasts of all ages.
