Greatest Dot-to-Dot Super Challenge! Book 8
Books Five and Six in the Greatest Dot-to-Dot Book in the World series, these amazing puzzle books are just as fun as the rest of the line, but perhaps even more challenging! With new dot-to-dot variations like arrows, compass, sequence, alpha dots (not your typical ABCs), double-page puzzles and old favorites like fields of dots, no dots, crazy dots, and stars, this could well be the most difficult, diverse, and fun dot-to-dot book we carry. No clues are given about the final images, many of the puzzles have over 1000 dots, and the completed pictures are amazingly detailed.
Book 7 includes the same great challenging puzzles as books 5 and 6 with the addition of a new variation. Numbers is a puzzle which begins with 001 and ends with a designated circled number. Connect the numbers in sequential order, passing through extra numbers along the way. You will have no clue what the picture is going to be since the page is literally covered in columns and rows of 3-digit numbers. This new puzzle is among some of the most challenging the author has created. In each book, 42 puzzles are included. 48 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
Now, I realize that a lot of you teens and parents have probably moved on from dot-to-dots. Those are for kids, you probably think. Well, I bet you just might change your mind and grab a pencil yourself if you pick up one of these! Each of these books contains 48 pages of fun, complex, and rewarding dot-to-dots. They're not just your basic 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 and so on. Nope, after warming you up with a few "ordinary" dot-to-dots, they change it up. Some dot-to-dots will ask for only specific sets of numbers to be connected (or odds and evens), while others give stop signals at specific points to pick up your pen and start a new line. Others ask for a line to connect letters and a separate line to connect numbers, while still others are hidden in a grid, and only by following the grid directions will you "unmask" the dot-to-dot solution. Whatever the rule, most dot-to-dots features over 100 dots, and often the "finished product" is not obvious from the dots alone. Final pictures include animals, vehicles, buildings, insects, and much more. Tips are offered along the way on such difficulties as drawing straight lines and using the right type of pen tip. I can't recall doing a dot-to-dot in years, but I have to admit, I'm really tempted to start marking up this sample copy! - Jess
