Plumdog: A Review
Plumdog is a beautifully illustrated tale of a sweet mutt named Plum in London. Plum's human mother, Emma Chichester Clark, has been blogging her dog's adventures since 2012. This book is a diary-like year-long tale of Plum's "discoveries, wry observations, and social engagements."
I loved reading from Plum's point of view, because I could definitely imagine Luna thinking a few of these things. It's very straightforward, but there is some definite sarcasm at times. The writing is extremely simple because it's written from the dog's point of view. I read the entire book in maybe half an hour. This would be a wonderful child's book, except for a few bits of adult language here and there. My favorite part was the stunning watercolor-like illustrations. Plum and all her dog friends were given so much personality - it's very cute.
The verdict: 3.5 stars. Plum and her thoughts are so precious and the illustrations are beautiful, but I can't find any "use" in this book. It isn't really a children's book due to language, but it's not really an adult book you would sit down and read. It could potentially be a good coffee table book, but I'm not sure. I really like it; I just don't know what to do with it.
The disclaimer: I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
