About the Author

A designer and artist, David Kalvitis has a fine arts degree from Syracuse University where he studied editorial design, painting and photography. He has operated a graphic design business in Upstate New York since 1987. David is a lifelong fan of puzzles and games of all kinds, and has spent many hours both playing games and designing them. He is pleased to release his products to the public, and hopes they will be fun and relaxing for people of all ages. A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Connect-the-dot puzzles are a fun, quiet activity that I always enjoyed as a child. As an adult, I found that all the books available were for young children just learning their numbers, with drawings that gave away the final pictures. Being a lifelong puzzle fan, I thought it would be fun to design a sophisticated and challenging dot-to-dot book for older kids. My objective was to create a magical dot-to-dot experience, not only by increasing the numbers and image quality, but also by inventing new and refreshing ways of creating pictures. Adults repeatedly tell me, I used to love dot-to-dots as a kid! One of the most satisfying surprises is that grown-ups enjoy the puzzles almost as much as the kids. It is also exciting to hear of the numerous ways that the books have been used for teaching and rehabilitation. The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Books have won multiple awards and the puzzles can be found all over the world in newspapers, magazines, catalogs, various stores and on the Internet. I'd like to think it's because I've tried to push dot-to-dots to a new and unexpected level, striving to create a modern day dot-to-dot revolution!

I enjoy all the dot to dot books for adults. They are a good way to exercise the brain in a fun, "get back to your inner child", way. Highly recommend these books.

I love doing these "dots". Did them as a child, but did not know until recently there were some for the older generation. I hope the author will continue to do them. I have books 1 through 8. Need more.

My MIL gav one of my children one of these dot to dot books for Christmas. She loved it so much, and the other 2 kids and my hubby and I couldn't stop asking her to leave us a puzzle to do, I ordered one for each of us. The kids have never been so quiet when riding in the car, or sitting in a doctor's office. It's fun to see what the dots turn into as they are connected.
Highly recommended!

When I found these Dot books, I was elated. I bought them to have fun right along with releasing stress. Even my doctor thought they were good. I'm 69 yrs old and you don't have to be a kid to like them.

I've worked several of the dot-to-dot puzzles and some of them are so intricate that they are mind boggling. You cannot do these unless you are at your very best attentive nature.
