What did you like about the book? This is a great book about a dog named Plum and a cat named Binky who moves in next door. Plum is used to be the center of attention and the one getting all the love, and is having a hard time thinking there is enough love to go around. Binky follows him around everywhere and steals the show. When Plum’s jealousy gets out of hand, he realizes there really is enough love to go around. I especially loved the illustrations in this book. Both Plum and Binky have a personality that shows through in the illustrations.
