Where’s Spot?
35th anniversary edition

Eric Hill
Penguin Puffin
ISBN: 9780141359915 [Board Book]
RRP: $19.99

This special edition is four times the size of the original but everything else is the same – just bigger. This timeless story for toddlers of a little dog hiding from its mother is of retrospective interest: it is the only Spot book in which he is not the main character - that is his mother, Sally; the other characters she finds in hiding places along the way are never named – only the hiding places are named; and they all appear in later Spot stories. An ideal gift for a newborn.
