Night night Spot: Eric Hill RIP

Eric Hill has died at the age of 86. He was the author and illustrator of the famed picture books about Spot the dog. The Guardian’s obituary shows  how much Eric identified with his famous creation:

“When he shows excitement on Christmas Day and cries ‘Yippee’, that’s me in there. I love the character, he’s my buddy and I’m at ease with him. Subconsciously, I see things from the dog’s point of view, so Spot is within me.”
