Celebrate the 30th anniversary of childhood favourite Spot, with this colourful, brighter edition of three classic Spot stories: "Spot Goes Splash", "Spot at the Fair" and "Sweet Dreams Spot". This re-issue features rescans of Eric Hill's original artwork - perfect for toddlers and children learning to read. Have fun reading these three stories in which Spot has fun in the rain, goes to the fair with Grandma and Grandpa, and then has a very busy day at home. Praise for Spot: "Spot is one of the essential experiences of childhood". ("Parents Magazine"). Eric Hill's Spot picture books have sold over 50 million copies worldwide since Spot first appeared in 1980. A range of Spot books for children through from baby to pre-school are available from Penguin, including: "Spot Can Count", "Spot Goes to the Circus", "Where's Spot?", "Spot's Baby Sister" and "Spot's Fun-Time Colouring Book".
Eric Hill was born in North London 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.
