On rainy days Spot and his friends always have lots to do. Every day is a play day, and there are brightly coloured stickers of all shapes and sizes for Spot fans to place on every page.
Eric Hill was born in London in 1927. He left school at 15 to work in a shipping office in the city. At 16 he joined an art studio as a messenger where he was encouraged to draw cartoons in his spare time. In 1976 Eric's son Christopher was born and when he was 2 years old Eric made up a story about a small puppy to read to him at bedtime. In 1980 'Where's Spot?' was published and the rest is history.
