You might look at this on an online book retailer and thing ‘yeah, that’s one to keep the kids quiet at the weekend’. If you’re in an actual shop, you might be raising an eyebrow at the size and thickness of the book. You might even notice that the illustration on the front cover includes dots numbered in the high 700s.
This book contains 100 illustrations from the worlds of Star Wars. This is a complex, yet ultimately satisfying set of challenges. You may very well not have any clue as to what many of the illustrations are until you are a significant way through them, although a few are obvious before you’ve committed to joining any dots whatsoever. The dot sequences go to very high numbers, and there may be more than one set of dots in any particular illustration – these are colour coded so you know which set you’re supposed to be working on at any time, but we do wonder whether this might be problematic if you’re colour blind? Certainly, the dots and their numbers are very small, and we recommend excellent lighting to avoid errors.
There are hours upon hours of fun here, and if you’re on the bandwagon of adult colouring books, the ‘instructions’ do suggest that you could colour in the illustrations after you’ve completed them. There’s also an ‘Answers’ section at the back of the book if you’ve managed to completely confuse yourself. We recommend a pencil with a decent eraser to hand, in case of errors, because you’ll be gutted if you commit a mistake in ink and ruin the picture.
This then, is not a Dot to Dot for your kids, it is rather exactly the relaxing activity you have been looking for.
