Plumdog

26 Aug

I recently discovered Emma Chichester Clark’s Plumdog Blog. It amazes me how she captures such little slices in the life of her dog, Plum.She started the blog in 2012 and last year, some of her best blogposts were collected into Plumdog, published in 2014.

Beginning in January, the book moves chronologically through Plums year, with each page covering one day. Some are funny, some poignant, just like her blog. Plum is quite a poet and philosopher.

Every bordered page has a marvelous illustration with a small amount of text.

Her picture book, Love is My Favorite Thing,  came out the following year, though I prefer the British cover where things are spelled correctly!

This one is definitely written with younger readers in mind, but maintains Plum’s voice. Plum loves many things, but occasionally makes some poor choices. Thank goodness for unconditional love! It looks as though a few more Plumdog picture books are coming out later this year and early next year.

I will certainly keep an eye out for them and hope you pick up some books about this wonderful dog and her Emma.
