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.

I remember when the Spot books came out and my little cousins had them and watched the cartoons on telly.
Now I have bought them for my little 18 month year old girl.
They are so satisfying to the touch and the flaps are sealed very well and give great excitement to bedtime stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrating 30 years of SPOT! 16 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
Measuring in around 21.5 cm x 21 cm, this review is for the 2010 PUFFIN BOOKS anniversary paperback, lift-the-flap version and remains one of my overall favourites to wind down at the end of a busy day!

From the back cover:-

'SPOT is one of the essential experiences of childhood.' (Parents magazine)

Colourful covers open to 22 thick, shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format. Bold, easy-to-follow text on one page and a lift-the flap opportunity on the other (apart from the first and last two pages).
Overall, 9 sturdy large flaps ensure successful lifting/replacing, time and time again.

Colourfully illustrated throughout.

Example of text:-

'Time to come in, Spot.
Goodnight, Tom.
Goodnight, Helen.
Spot puts his toys away......'

and says 'Goodnight' to his favourite things, as he gets ready for bath and bed.

I bought this book for my 18 month old daughter for Christmas, she absolutely loves it, it's her favourite book. She'd have us read it over and over again, and never seems to get bored of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spot Says Goodnight 11 Oct 2012
By Diane
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This is a good quality book but my 3 year old grandaughter found it too young for her. She loves Eric Hill's Spot books but contrary to the reviews I read before buying it, I think this one is aimed at younger children (perhaps 18 months to 2 years).
