This is NOT the Dot to Dot book from your childhood--it's a modern version with complex pictures (some are 2 page spreads!) and ideas. These puzzles are ADDICTIVE--they are not just follow numbers, oh no--they are so much more. Not only do you have to count, but you must also search for the next sequence of numbers. Some use ABCs, some use symbols while others have no dots! There are picture puzzles that require drawing series of lines on a grid, too. Some puzzles are drawn following directional arrows, so not all of these are simply dot-to-dot.
If you are looking for a child's dot-to-dot of less than 100 dots, this is not the proper book. I have given these challenging puzzles to people from elementary school to age 75 (and beyond) and they have all LOVED these puzzles. The pictures cover a wide range from animals to people, but don't expect to solve one in 5 minutes, either!
I highly recommend this dot-to-dot challenge puzzle book to anyone who enjoys keeping their mind active. Just one look and you'll be hooked! Buy this book for yourself, your kids, as a birthday gift, for someone laid up, for your mother or your grandparents--they will ALL LOVE IT!

Lots of different kinds of dot-to-dot challenges - much more than the kind you experienced as a kid. Challenging enough for adults to enjoy.

I have purchased all the books in this series and I hope there are many more to come. This is definitely the best of the bunch, followed closely by number 5. I am over 40 and am disabled, so this is an excellent way for me to keep my mind active. Not to mention that 3 of the puzzles cover 2 pages with numbers well into the 1000's! ! ! Be warned, once you start, it is VERY hard, almost impossible, to put it down. I find it an enjoyable addiction and am thinking of purchasing the series again just for the fun of it. In my opinion, this is a must have book!

I'm not sure who had more fun with this, the kids or me. Seriously addicting. [My 5 yo was able to do it, with concentration and a little help.]

This is a great dot-to-dot book. It provided hours of fun and I recommend purchasing it for those older people who are still kids at heart. It might be a little difficult for 3rd grade and under.

I have never bothered to come back and review any products here, but this book has been such a hit with my students, I thought I ought to. I teach ESOL students of all ages and abilities and we use puzzles from the book for a break or diversion and for number practice. The puzzles are challenging, but light on language, so my students can succeed and be proud of themselves. Since the book includes a wide range of puzzles, with some that only go up to 184, and others into the thousands, students at every level can be challenged and experience success. There are also some that help my students practice even and odd numbers and some that test alphabetizing skills that my older beginner students especially like. A number of the puzzles help practice using coordinates, and lots of students benefit from that.

I am impressed!

My finacee is 20 and loves doing dot to dots so I got here a group of these books and she really likes them. The only con I can give them is I know on one puzzle so far the picture when completed wasn't very great, the others she as done are fine, but one so far was not to her liking.

Interesting pictures on quality paper. I always loved dot-to-dot when I was a child. Now finally there are puzzles large and detailed enough to occupy an adult! But don't fret if you are buying for a young one. The age range is 8 years and up.

I love the Dot to Dot books. This is the 4th book I have done. I get the same enjoyment I remembered as a child trying to guess what the picture is before it is completed.
