Eric Hill is the creator of Spot, the world's favorite puppy, who appeared in his first story, Where's Spot? in 1980 and quickly became one of the best-loved pre-school characters of all time. Today Spot's adventures remain incredibly popular and are enjoyed the world over.

Eric was born on September 7, 1927 in London, and educated at Pooles Park Elementary and Tollington Park Central schools until the outbreak of World War II. At 16 he joined an art studio as a messenger, 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.

In 1976 Eric's son Christopher was born; 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'. The innovative lift-the-flap concept, combined with the simple story and quirky, charming illustrations, helped Where's Spot? become an instant hit with young children and within weeks it was at the top of the UK best-seller list.

The playful puppy soon became hugely popular and a series of adventures followed, including the introduction of Spot's friends and family. Spot expanded from the original lift-the-flap books to interactive storybooks, sound books and audio books. There are currently eight series of Spot animation available on DVD and these have been broadcast and sold on video and DVD all over the world.

Spot's own website funwithspot.com was launched in 2000 to coincide with Spot's 20th anniversary. Incorporating fun and learning it has helped thousands of young children develop their on-line skills through interactive games and activities. The site receives 10 million hits and 70,000 unique visitors per month.

As well as his son Christopher, Eric also has a daughter, Jane, who works very closely with her father on many Spot projects. Eric remains involved in the development of all Spot projects at every stage. He and his wife Gillian divide their time between California and France with a varied collection of animals which provide continual inspiration for the Spot stories.

Eric was one of the 'literary ambassadors' invited to The Children's Party at the Palace to commemorate The Queen's 80th birthday at Buckingham Palace in June 2006. This highlight of Eric's career was followed with the award of an O.B.E. for services to children's literature in the 2008 New Year's Honors List.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love love love this book.
By Amazon Customer on April 11, 2017
I bought this for my niece, she loves it. My 3 year old niece loves her electronics, but if you give her the option of this book or the phone, she will choose the book. When I get tired of reading it to her, I find it on YouTube where a lady has out recorded with her reading it. Win win! She first read it at the library. She never wants to leave Spot.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 9, 2020
Great book. We have a few of these Spot the dog books and the kids love them. Perfect for bed time or for some casual story time during the day. Our oldest who is 2.5 will regularly pick them up and “read” them herself.

Good quality and no issues with torn pages or marks. They feel heavy and durable.

Really brings me back to my childhood when I had similar books as a child!
