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?
Emma Chichester Clark (www.emmachichesterclark.co.uk) began her website, Plumdog Blog (emmachichesterclark.blogspot.com) to chronicle the real-life adventures of Plum, her lovable “whoosell” (whippet, poodle, and Jack Russell cross). Emma soon had thousands of loyal Plumdog devotees, and a book of the blog is published by Clarkson Potter. Love Is My Favorite Thing is the first Plumdog picture book for children. Emma has written and illustrated numerous picture books, including the Blue Kangaroo series. She grew up in the Irish countryside, where she began making books with sewn-up spines when she was five years old. She studied graphic design and later attended the Royal College of Art. She lives in West London, England, with her husband, three stepsons, and their beloved Plum.
