The Lovereading4Kids comment

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


Plenty of Love to Go Round by Emma Chichester Clark

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.

About the Author

Emma Chichester Clark

Emma Chichester Clark studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, where she was taught by Quentin Blake. She has worked as a freelance illustrator for various magazines including New Scientist, Cosmopolitan and The Sunday Times, for publishers and advertising agencies as well as teaching art for several years, and has also illustrated numerous book jackets.

In 1988 she won the Mother Goose Award for her first book, Listen to This!, an anthology compiled by Laura Cecil. She also won the Kate Greenaway medal in 1988. Since then, she has become internationally known, illustrating writers such as Roald Dahl, Peter Dickinson, Anne Fine and Margaret Mahy. Emma was the first winner of the newly created Grinzane Junior Award for I Love you, Blue Kangaroo.

Emma was born in London but raised in Ireland. She started drawing "just about as soon as I could hold a pencil. But I could never find enough paper and my mother wouldn't let me use her Basildon Bond. So secretly I used to tear the blank pages out of her grown-up books and draw on them and make my own little books."

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
