I’ve had such fun dipping in and out of this the past few weeks — a joyful graphic novel that will make any dog lover laugh. It’s a collection of a year’s worth of posts from illustrator Emma Chichester Clark’s blog about her dog, Plum.
I can’t recommend it enough: the illustrations are beautiful and Plum’s narration is hilarious (like Plum advising her friend from out of town that in London “[dog]-coat wearing is absolutely de rigueur”). It’s also heart-warming because the love between owner and dog is so perfectly rendered.
Thank you to my wonderful sister for the perfect January present.
