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!

What People are Saying About This
Since the first time I did a David Kalvitis dot-to-dot book, I was hooked. I have even done most of these books two, or even three times. These are the very best dot-to-dot books that I've ever seen, and this latest one is the cream of the crop. I love the way the pictures are all part of a theme, a story if you will. And having two 3-page and one 4-page fold out puzzles put the cherry on top! These are not just mindless connect one dot to the next. You have to think on most of these, or the picture won't come out right. As far as I'm concerned, David Kalvitis is the king of dot-to-dot, and I will continue to purchase his books. Can't wait for the next one!
Previous Greatest Dot-to-Dot Super Challenge Books versions have been quite the superlative item of entertainment, skill development, and challenge. The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure - Book 1 is a culmination of everything learned from the responses of consumers and other sources of independent feedback and suggestion...and more.
With The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure - Book 1 you are setting out an entirely new journey. With most other Dot-to-Dot puzzle books you can select any page at random to work with. David Kalvitas has re-invented Dot-to-Dot puzzle books with a different approach of your needing to start at page one and work through each page consecutively.
The twist to the progress of working through each puzzle page is that you gain clues with the successful completion of each page in succession. These clues are necessary to solve the mystery awaiting you in pages that are soon to follow. Your are welcome to try and complete pages at random, but no clues equates to no completion of a puzzle.
As you will soon see in some of the paraphrased excerpts from our independent evaluator's reports, as each puzzle page is completed, an ever-developing storyline begins to become more evident subtly merged within the "...progressive numerical and shape sequence sets which have never before been presented."
Other companies may be able to create knock-offs of the creative concepts so perfectly infused within the progressive structure of the puzzles in this book, yet nothing is like the real deal. David Kalvitas, the masterful creator of this book and all other Greatest Dot-to-Dot puzzle books, has his own unique signature of design and quality that makes buyers continue to keep wanting to come back for more.
I just completed the 4 page 2,685 dot puzzle in the new book...did it all in one day while sitting by the lakeside, and let me tell you, you are my hero David Kalvitis! That was the most spectacular dot to dot puzzle I have done in my entire life!
