In, In Dear Spot

The Penguin Blog reports that Eric Hill, author of the Where's Spot books, has received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for services to Britain. While I can't speak to the movies, my kids loved the books in their toddler days. The top favorite is probably Spot Goes to School. The books are light and cheerful and they make frequent use of the lift the flap (according to Penguin, Eric Hill created the lift the flap book in fact), which in our house means the books have a short life expectancy. No matter, they are worth it.
