Eric Hill 1927 – 2014
Eric Hill was the very talented author and illustrator who created books about the curious little puppy Spot who soon became everyone’s favourite dog. His wonderfully simple picture and board books with lift the flaps are firm favourites with pre-schoolers everywhere.
At home we have our own much-loved copies, although sadly, they do look a little worse for wear now. I even confess to owning my own Spot soft toy which sits on my bookcase.
Where’s Spot was first published in 1980 and has been in print ever since with a number of other Spot adventures.
In 2008 he was appointed OBE for services to children’s literature.
Here is Eric reading his book accompanied by his own Spot!
