When Binky the cat moves in next door, Plum can't understand why everyone likes him so much. But she soon learns that there's no need to be jealous and there's plenty of love to go round.
Inspired by her hugely popular Plumdog Blog, this charming story explores how to deal with feelings of jealousy.
'Among the many flavours of children's books, that of Emma Chichester Clark's - funny, elegant
and delicious"- Quentin Blake
Oh I am partial to Plum, he’s a very special dog—he has his own marvellous blog, and now his own picture books. Emma Chichester Clark’s beloved ‘whoosell’ (whippet, Jack Russell and poodle cross) is the subject for these books, all written in the first person by Plum himself. In Plenty of Love to go Around, Plum has a new neighbour—a white cat named Binky. Plum’s nose is out of joint, he simply can’t see what all the fuss is about. Binky may be a very appealing little cat, but not to Plum. With absolute compassion and humour, Emma Chichester Clark deftly describes, through Plum’s words and her pictures, the terrible sense of self-defeating jealousy that many children feel when there’s a new small person around. This book joins the ranks of brilliant picture books like Charlotte Voake’s Ginger, and Jenny Wagner’s John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat. High praise indeed. Louise
