The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide offers children and fans insight into the full range of exciting The LEGO Batman Movie sets and minifigures, launching to tie in with the film’s release. The book also includes images from the movie, inviting readers to learn all about their favourite characters and relive the story time and time again. From Robin to Batgirl, this must-have book showcases the Super Heroes from the film, along with facts and trivia on LEGO Batman’s foes including The Joker and Harley Quinn, and information on the film’s exciting vehicles and incredible locations...

For fans of the new LEGO The Batman Movie, DK have published a handful of fun and informative books. LEGO The Batman Movie The Essential Guide is a 68-page hardback release that packs quite a lot into its pages.

Like the LEGO movies, this book has tongue placed firmly in cheek, as it explores the light and humorous side of the Batman universe. It also gives us a look at the some of the LEGO Batman minifigures including Glam Rocker Batman (which includes an electric guitar), Vacation Batman (complete with goggles and rubber ring); and the pink Fairy Batmother (equipped with tutu, wings and magic wand).

For those wanting to see what LEGO kits are available, there's also a nice collection including the vehicles, and playsets - although I doubt the giant Wayne Manor and Arkham Asylum are actually real kits you can buy.

The book also runs us through the villains, including the weird and wacky ones like Orca and March Harriet. And provides more facts and amusing information than any one mind can handle.

It's a beautifully presented book which will keep young fans engrossed for hours.
