Somehow I’ve appeared on lots of publicists’ email lists. Not that I mind; I get some great ideas for blog posts from them.
Recently I got an email touting a dot-to-dot book for adults. The topic? Animals.
What? Are you kidding me? Dot-to-dot? Who does that?
Actually, I kinda like the book. These are not simple drawings. And when you’ve finished, you’ve recreated something rather fantastic.
I know what you’re thinking: If I like it, why am I calling it tacky?
For one, the name is misleading. When I first saw it, I thought there were 1000 drawings. No, that’s the name of the series of activity books. You can find all sorts of topics of interest.
The other is that, no matter how cool this is, many people are going to react like I initially did when I saw the book. What? What kind of idiotic crap is this?
I found the book on Amazon.com for $11.32. But if you’re ordering there, do so soon. It ships in 1-3 weeks, and you’ll want it to arrive in plenty of times for holiday gift-giving.
Does the book save animals? No. Does it harm animals? Not directly (just that pesky thing of killing forests to harvest wood for paper and such). So if you’ve got someone who enjoys letting those creative juices flow but, like me, can’t draw, consider this as a fun gift!
