More About the Author

Born in 1927, Eric Hill is the creator of Spot, 'the world's favourite puppy'. At 16 he joined an art studio, where he was encouraged to draw cartoons in his spare time. He particularly enjoyed drawing aircraft, and it was the markings of planes that later came to influence the design of Spot, reflected in the spots on his body and the tip of his tail. Eric also spent time in the air force, and worked in a large advertising agency as a graphic designer. In 1976 Eric's son Christopher was born and by the time he was two, Eric was making up stories about the adventures of a small puppy to read to him at bedtime and Spot was born!

The design of the books was inspired by an advertising flyer Eric had devised involving a flap covering an amusing picture. When Eric showed this to Christopher he saw how responsive he was to the idea and incorporated it into his book. Although initially created just as a story to please his son, Where's Spot? was actually published as a children's book in 1980 and started a new publishing concept of 'interactive books for babies'.

Eric Hill was awarded an OBE for services to Children's Literature in 2008.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Flaps 13 Jun 2010
By In Search of Value - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
My Son's favorite thing about the Spot series are the flaps. Where's Spot? (Lift-the-flap Book) is one of his favorites and I was looking for other flap books to add some variety. This book is an okay. It's a very basic board book with a simple going to bed story that's good for younger toddlers, but there are no flaps. If you're looking for another Spot flap book like I was, keep looking. This book is fine but I can already tell that it's not going to be a favorite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goodnight Spot 8 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
This a wonderful book to use as a bed time story. Children can see that even Spot has to go to bed when he is tired. It will help them see that they need to get into the habit of going to bed when they are tired.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic good night puppy story 1 Jun 2001
By Heather Walton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
My 9-month-old has loved this book since she was a newborn. It is short and simple, but the pages have bright colors with the cute puppy preparing for bed. He plays, baths, picks out a book and his parents read him to sleep. A classic that all babies should have in their library.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for young readers too 20 May 2007
By Robin Lapre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
My children loved spot board books as toddlers. I am so glad we saved them because now that my son is in kindergarten, I have found that these books are great "early reader" books. They have a nice story and nice pictures and simple sentences with commonly used words. They are great for building confidence. In contrast, I have been very disappointed by the Scholastic early reader series and the Step Into Reading series because the sentences are often too long or complicated and I find the word choices much too difficult for early readers. And the Bob book series is OK for easy words but the stories are mediocre. I instead am just going to get more Eric Hill books as they are fun to read and instill confidence in my young readers.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book is tiny 25 Sep 2012
By petite mommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
In the search for more "Spot" books, I came across this one, and thought it'd be a nice little book to read to my toddler before bed. "Little" is right! This book fits in (practically) the palm of my hand, and the story is the same as all "night-night" books; play the day away, take a bath, pick a book, go to sleep. I guess I thought it'd be a lift-the-flap book (but that's my fault for not reading the product description correctly). It's okay...it hasn't gotten rave reviews from my dog-loving bookworm of a toddler either.
