Dot-to-Dot Scene Puzzle Sample from The NEW Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure Book 1
The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure, (the 17th book in the Greatest Dot-to-Dot series) by David Kalvitis, carries on his tradition of skillfully utilizing dots to create the most amazingly complex and artistic dot-to-dot puzzles to ever hit the market.
The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure - Book 1 begins following a guide, an imaginative young boy searching for the missing pieces of a mysterious gift. Together, visitors will navigate challenging puzzles and unearth secret clues to discover new species of dots and spectacular views. One can even challenge themselves by scaling the 'Everest of Connect-the-Dots', a four page foldout puzzle comprised of a record breaking 2,600 dots.
Kalvitis' goal was to raise the connect-the-dot bar even higher with his new 'Adventure' series. A simple story line that follows a boy around his home town looking for clues is a continuing theme in Adventure Book 1. The variety of images expected in Kalvitis' previous books are still present in this new offering, in addition the images of what the young boy sees 'connect' as the story begins to unfold.
Speaking of unfolding, the new Adventure Book also contains two triple page foldouts, and one jaw dropping four page foldout with over 2,600 dots, the largest Dot-to-Dot in print to date. Kalvitis' new book also boasts a couple new puzzle styles as well as puzzles that give clues to other puzzles in order for you to solve them. Because of these interacting puzzles in addition to the new story line (both of which have never been done in an activity book of this type before), The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure Book is even more interactive and exciting than ever before.
Join us on the Adventure, because Dot-to-Dots aren't just for kids anymore! Ages 8 to 108.
I got very confused when my order came in because I ordered from your site and somehow the order was filled through Shopatron?
Yes, our orders from our webstore are fullfilled by our small retailers around the country. They buy the books from us and fill the orders that are closer to their zip code. The stores earn revenue and you get your books faster. You also may have the opportunity to pick up your order at the store and save on shipping.
Wish it wasn't so long in between getting new books out as I really enjoy doing them...
This is not in a question form, but we get the question ALOT. It takes David (the only one making the books) a long time to plan an idea for a book, think of images of a book, invent a new way of doing a dot-to-dot, put the image with the puzzle type (not all will work together), layout the image, lay out the dots, rework the image with the dots so there a no crossing lines (unless it is required) and no touching dots. The pages that have 2 or more connected, those pages have to be designed with a gap in the middle. The instructions have to be placed or written, the pages have to be placed in numerical order, then the testing of each puzzle begins. After all is ready it has to go to the printer. David takes pride in the increasing detail of each puzzle with the progression of the books.
I think your Dot-to-Dot books are the greatest!! When is your next book due to come out?
