"One of Britain's best-loved children's authors and illustrators, Emma Chichester Clark hardly needs any introduction - and, to many, neither does her dog... Written in Plum's own words and delightfully illustrated, this collection of thoughts has something for everyone. It's funny, witty, heartwarming and occasionally heart-breaking, but it is ultimately uplifting; the way dogs can be, even on the dreariest of days. Most of all, it's relatable: all dog owners will find something of their own beloved friends in the canine characters in this book, as well as something of themselves in Emma's daily life and struggles with one very stubborn, strong-willed, but irresistible little dog." * Dogs Monthly *
