9780140504200: Where's Spot? (Picture Puffin - Lift-the-flap book)

In Eric Hill's classic Where's Spot? lift the flaps to find Spot!

In Spot's first adventure children can join in the search for the mischievous puppy by lifting the flaps on every page to see where he is hiding. The simple text and colourful pictures will engage a whole new generation of pre-readers as they lift the picture flaps in search of Spot. A No.1 bestseller since it was first published in 1980, this interactive favourite has stayed in the charts ever since.

This is a bigger, brighter paperback edition of Eric Hill's iconic first lift-the-flap book.

'Spot is one of the essential experiences of childhood.' Parents magazine

Eric Hill was born in North London and lived there for many years. He 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. Eric currently resides in France.

Review:

Parents magazine described Spot as "one of the essential experiences of childhood", and there can be few children who at some time or another have not encountered the boisterous puppy who has been entertaining children for more than two decades.

Where's Spot is the ultimate, must-have Spot book: with its bold illustrations, simple, large text and plenty of flaps to lift, pull and tug as the reader tries to track down the naughty little dog. Great fun for children, and just as much fun for adults who enjoy sharing a book with their child, Where's Spot is something of a classic. (Ages 2-4.--Susan Harrison

About the Author:

Eric Hill was born in North London in 1927 and, apart from a brief period of evacuation, lived there for many years. His career as an artist began when he was employed as a messenger in an art studio and was encouraged to draw. Eric's son was born in 1976 and he began to write stories about a puppy to read to him at bedtime, and so Spot was born. The family moved to California in 1983 but Eric continues to visit the UK several times a year and is very involved in developing Spot projects.
