Plum is back with an all new adventure in Plenty of Love to go Around by Emma Chichester Clark! Life is pretty great for Plum, also known as the Special One by her humans, Emma and Rupert. She is even adored by the neighbor children, Sam and Gracie. Until the day that Binky arrives....
Plum cannot believe her eyes! Sam and Gracie are now the very proud owners of a CAT! She is certain that no good can come out of this new addition. Especially when Binky begins to follow her everywhere.
What is this poor pampered pooch to do? Is it truly possible to be friends with a cat? Is there really plenty of love to go around?
I was very excited to read the second installment in the Plum series and I was not disappointed. Clark deals with the complicated emotion of jealousy from an animal's point of view. I found this found this fresh perspective to be very entertaining as well as educational.
The illustrations are whimsical as well as adorable. I love how Plum's eyes are so expressive! I also love that the illustrations are hand drawn. I feel that more and more drawing is becoming a lost art.
I greatly enjoyed following Plum on her journey through jealousy. Children of all ages will fall in love with Plum and Binky. This would be a great story to read before adopting a second pet or for parents who are expecting another child.
