About Spot the Dog
Spot was created by Eric Hill, the author and illustrator of the children's picture books and Where's Spot?, first published in 1980. The books featured an innovative design whereby the reader lifts paper to revel the puppy character, Spot, which at that time was a unique design of the lift the flap books.
Spot is a yellow puppy with a brown spot on each side of his body and splash of brown on the tip of his tail. Spot is curious and helpful with a strong desire to learn. The series of books takes children along on his adventures as Spot plays and learns about the world around him.
Since the release of Where's Spot?, Eric Hill has published numerous other books in the series and an animated television series, The Adventures of Spot, was first released in 1987, along with Spot's Musical Adventures in 2000.
