Plumdog is back in her second adventure - and this time there is a pesky cat to contend with.
Emma Chichester Clark is one of Britain's best loved children's authors and illustrators. She is the author of the immensely popular Blue Kangaroo series and many other books, and has illustrated books by Roald Dahl, Kevin Crossley-Holland, Peter Dickinson, Michael Morpurgo and, most recently, Quentin Blake.
Plum the shaggy little dog is an irresistible character, exuberant, lively and loving. But her big-heartedness is sorely tested when a new cat moves in next door. In Plum's eyes he's a show-off, clever-clogs cat, and she's jealous of all the attention the cat gets. Only a heart to heart with Emma after Plum has done something decidedly mean proves to the little dog that of course there's enough love to go round. The illustrations bring Plum to life in all her bouncy glory, and Emma Chichester Clark captures her feelings perfectly in the angle of her head, roll of her eye or twitch of her tail. A book to be read and enjoyed over and over again. -- Andrea Reece, Lovereading4Kids * http://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/book/13233/Plenty-of-Love-to-Go-Round-by-Emma-Chichester-Clark.html *
