Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Is Spot an institution among the preschool set? If not, he should be. Originally published in 1981, this colorized edition is as fresh now as it was then. In this story, Spot goes exploring. It is the first time Spot's mom, Sally, has let him go for a walk all by himself. Spot takes advantage of this chance to play outside to find all kinds of exciting new places and things. Along the way he looks behind a fence, in a tool shed, in a chicken coop, up a tree, behind a gate, in a vegetable garden, under a flower, and in a pond. In each case, the reader and/or child gets to lift-the-flap and find a new friend along with Spot—a snail, cat, chicken and her chicks, woodpecker, flowers and bees, rabbits and fish. The simple text encourages the child to discover along with Spot, while the colorful drawings and interactive design keeps them engaged to the very last page. 2005 (orig. 1981), Putnam/Penguin, Ages 2 to 5.

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.
