There’s a new pet in town!
Based on the adventures of Emma Chichester Clark’s real-life dog, Plum, this delightful romp gently tackles feelings of jealousy and the difficulties of sharing, in endearing, dynamic illustrations that readers will love.
Plum the dog loves being her family’s Special One. So when Binky the cat moves in next door and everyone showers him with attention, Plum feels left out. Cats are not her favorite thing! Binky follows Plum everywhere, even to the park, which everyone knows is not for cats. And on top of that, Binky is so annoyingly clever. Is he the new Special One? Or is there enough love for both of them?

Praise For Plenty of Love To Go Around

“Sweet-natured sequel to Love Is My Favorite Thing (2015). . . . Displaced older siblings will readily identify with Plum’s fears about losing her spot as her family’s ‘Special One,’ and the dog’s emotions are plainly apparent in Clark’s watercolor-and-pencil artwork.”Publishers Weekly

“Plum, an adorable black shaggy dog with a definite terrier look, is back for another adventure. . . . Colorful images that coordinate exceptionally well with the text. . . . The simple watercolor and pencil figures are full of expression, especially the large eyes that show a range of emotions: happiness, dubious concern, and even some anger. The large format makes this offering ideal for preschool storytime, and the message is a reassuring one. Recommended for all picture book collections.”School Library Journal
