Rick Brick and the Quest to Save Brickport by Tamony Hall Summary
Rick Brick is an architect who remembers the days when Brickport was gleaming and prosperous. Today, the city crumbles under corruption, poverty, and crime, but a powerful young billionaire has recently stepped in to run the capital. The billionaire demands that Rick design and build a magnificent structure at the center of the city, something to bring the city back to its original splendor. But the billionaire has ulterior motives. The last brick to be used to finish the building is The Onyx Brick, older than the universe and holding all evil. Once the structure is finished, it will destroy the universe. It’s up to Rick to find The Golden Brick, which holds all good, before The Onyx Brick is put into place. Rick and his friend must cross through a portal and into three different brick dimensions to search for The Golden Brick. From the land of the dinosaurs to deep space, Rick will face great challenges and overcome hurdles with his quick mind and clever brick building. Will Rick Brick save the day? Or will Brickport, and the rest of the universe, be destroyed forever? This is the perfect book for reluctant readers who love LEGO bricks.
