About the Author

Eric Hill (1927-2014) started his artistic career as an art studio messenger and from there went on to become a cartoonist and eventually an art director at a leading advertising agency. In 1978 Eric made up a story about a small puppy to read to his son at bedtime and Spot was born. The success of his first bestselling lift-the-flap classic Where's Spot? in 1980 convinced him to become a full-time author, and his Spot books have been enjoyed by children around the world ever since. In 2008 he was awarded an OBE for services to children's literacy. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am a first grader in Lockport, NY. My name is Joshua. I have read all of the Spot lift-the-flap books. My favorite book is Spot Bakes a Cake. I liked when Spot helped his Mom bake the cake for Dad. I hope Eric Hill writes 500 more Spot lift-the-flap books!

Spot and his mom make a surprise birthday cake for daddy dog in this fun book. Kids love liftng the flaps and seeing what's underneath (mine liked the mouse who says "I need some cheese.")
After shopping for the ingredients and mixing them up back at home, Spot has great fun icing the cake with LOADS of chocolate--it gets all over the table as well. Festooned with multi-colored frosting and bones, the finished product is a delightful surprise for dad. You'll find this delightful as well! With 22 pages, 20 flaps, and big colorful pictures, this is a surefire hit for the toddler set!

My bookworm toddler loves Spot lift-the-flap books....but this one just doesn't catch her attention. The story is a bit long for her ateention span, I guess, and the text underneath the flaps might be a bit much for her right now (she's 17 months old). Maybe she'll warm up to it when she's a little older. The story itself is sweet; Spot trying to bake his Daddy a cake, with the usual cute messes along the way. And the cake...well, he is a preschool puppy, right? :)

My almost-2 year old LOVES the Spot series, and for whatever reason, "Cake" has been his favorite book since I gave it to him over a month ago. He loves finding the mouse in every scene, and pointing out all the ingredients Spot and the mouse use to make the cake. It has also helped him grasp the concept of blowing out birthday candles, which is good because his birthday is coming up soon! He points to the candles, says something that resembles "candles," then says, "hot," and blows on the book. Pretty cute.

My daughter likes this spot book. She is two and is big into birthdays and surprises so she enjoys this book a lot since it is about making a surprise cake for Daddy. Flaps are too thin as always with the spot books, but we are careful and always read it together so I can supervise.

We love the spot series and my son loves flipping the little tabs on each of the pages. They never get old. Our all time favorite is still Where is Spot? as the story line to me and the flip tabs make sense. This one is a little odd on what the author/publisher decided to pick as items to hide under the tabs, but oh well, it's a children's book. Still fun!

The Fun with Spot series is about the daily activities of a puppy with all the characteristics of a preschool child. In this entry, Spot and his mom set out to bake a birthday cake for his dad. From shopping for ingredients to mixing them together, from cleaning up to decorating, and finally to presenting the cake to his dad, Spot takes his readers through cooking process. Little pop up features conceal the illustrations on each set of pages, adding to the fun, and the satisfactions inherent in accomplishing and giving are unspoken but evident. Recommended for toddlers to early readers.

Spot the Dog books are a favourite with my girls. They love the simple stories that they can relate to (hiding, baking a cake, playing with others etc) and the lift-the-flaps always bring screams of delight even though we've read them many many times. As they grow I'm sure they'll be one of the books they learn to read with. The words are simple and the font easy to read. Lovely books to cuddle up with your children on your lap. They are also big enough to hold up and read to them as they sit in back seat on car trips.
