I recently finished one of my biggest Lego project thus far - a Lego version of Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham. I made 20 scenes that each represent a scene from the book.
You can watch the whole set of photos on Flickr. If you click on the first in the set, you can also browse through with the prev/next links.
Or you watch them here - pictures link to Flickr, click to enlarge. On the Flickr photopage hit 'all sizes' over the picture to view full size[/i]
I did not try to cover every page of the book. There are a few events I left out altogether (the rain, the underwater bit) because they would not be very interesting in Lego.
On the photo pages I added some text excerpts to accompany the pictures. Please not that these are only excerpts, I did not copy all text of the book.
Some final remarks:
- In the book, the third train passenger is almost never visible. In my Lego version you'll only see him in the water, but he is in the train, too, behind the rear window. He has no arms because they wouldn't fit in that narrow train...
- It is not easy to fit a train in a boat chimney. I had to do quite a big chimney, and I had to take some bits off the front of the train before I put it in.
- This was very interesting to build. It looks so different from everything I normally do, I had to keep reminding myself it was Seuss so I should not do too many details... I hope the result has a bit of the same atmosphere as this book which I grew up with.
