The World Loses Eric Hill

I'm sad to report that I just read on Facebook that Eric Hill, the author of 'Spot the Dog' books from the early 1980's has passed away aged 86 in California.  He suffered from a brief illness before he died and was made famous for his simple design of a dog called Spot and how his books entertained children in 1980.

'Spot' is still very much a favourite amongst children from all over the world.  And the books are translated into over sixty languages.  I wasn't much of a fan of this author when I was a child, however I found a link to an article about him.
