Spot celebrates 40 years plus giveaway | Mum's Grapevine

He’s the lovable, mischievous pup adored by generations and now Spot’s all grown up. And what better way to celebrate turning 40 years old by showering one lucky Australian family with gifts.

We’re pulling out the party poppers and birthday cake and marking this very special anniversary by teaming up with Penguin Random House to give away a Where’s Spot prize bundle worth almost $400. It’s bursting with books and more – perfect for every young pup!

‘Where’s Spot’ 40th-anniversary edition

Can you believe it’s been 40 years of fun, friendship, first steps and lifting the flaps with Spot, our favourite fictional puppy? To celebrate this momentous occasion, a special edition of Spot’s very first book ‘Where’s Spot’ is being released. The classic hide-and-seek story is now available with a ruby foil cover (because it’s Spot’s ruby anniversary!) and in a new large format.

Eric Hill first dreamt up the story of a small puppy to read to his son in 1978. Just two years later, his best-selling first book ‘Where’s Spot’ was published, and it’s been loved by millions of children around the world ever since. Eric’s books have now been translated into more than 60 languages and have sold over 65 million copies.

As part of the celebrations, little book worms can head to the Penguin Books Australia YouTube channel to hear Australian Author Kathy Lette read a Spot book.
