Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 This new book about the adventures of Spot will be eagerly greeted by his fans. The clear, simple color illustrations of objects will be easily identified by toddlers, and the ``lift-the-flap'' sections are fully integrated with the text and illustrations. In this story, the engaging puppy chases his toy ball as it bounces into and through a circus tent. Youngsters will delight in lifting the cleverly disguised flaps each time Spot believes he has found his ballonly to discover that he has mistaken it for the clown's nose, the elephant's balloons, or the bareback rider's ball. He continues his search until he finds it balanced on the end of a seal's nose. The ending has a nice twist: the seal teaches Spot to balance the ball on the end of his own nose. Story hour participants as well as beginning readers will love to explore the big top with Spot. Louise M. Zuckerman, formerly at San Francisco Public Library

Meet the Author

Eric Hill (1927-2014) started his artistic career as an art studio messenger and from there went on to become a cartoonist and eventually an art director at a leading advertising agency. In 1978 Eric made up a story about a small puppy to read to his son at bedtime and Spot was born. The success of his first bestselling lift-the-flap classic Where's Spot? in 1980 convinced him to become a full-time author, and his Spot books have been enjoyed by children around the world ever since. In 2008 he was awarded an OBE for services to children's literacy.
