Lego has just unveiled a new Ideas set, totally different from everything, the Pop Up Book. This new concept is considerably big, eight hundred and fifty nine pieced and features a buildable book with two scenarios that includes four mini-figures (Little Red Riding Hood, Grandmother, the Wolf, and the Giant), a micro-figure and some nice details to enjoy.
