Rest in Peace Eric Hill



I love Spot! I love all the books. I know some of them off by heart (almost). I grew up with Mum saying “What’s happening” my response was always “not a lot Spot!” I feel so saddened by the death of Eric Hill. I know I don’t personally know him but he has given myself and so many children so much joy. The stories, the lift the flaps, the other characters… all of it. Now his creator is gone. It almost feels like Spot himself has gone.

It’s all so corny and dorky what I’m saying but it’s how I feel!

Spot and his stories will live on and tomorrow I’ll dust my old Spot books off and give them a read!

(Ah – so terribly corny!)

Goodbye Eric Hill. Thanks for giving us Spot!
