School Library Journal - 11/01/2016 PreS-Gr 1—Plum, an adorable black shaggy dog with a definite terrier look, is back for another adventure. As in the first book, it's all about love—Plum's favorite thing!—plus a bit of naughtiness, which she can't seem to control. Plum's best friends, the kids next door, bring home Binky, a cat. As he follows Plum around and mimics her every move, the pup's annoyance changes to jealousy, especially when Binky seems to rise to status as the new Special One. Full spreads and panels present colorful images that coordinate exceptionally well with the text. The font is dark gray, with emphasized words in black. The simple watercolor and pencil figures are full of expression, especially the large eyes, which show a range of emotions: happiness, dubious concern, and even some anger. VERDICT The large format makes this offering ideal for preschool storytime, and the message is a reassuring one. Recommended for all picture book collections.—Gaye Hinchliff, King County Library System, WA - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
