Chichester Clark, Emma

Hello. My name is Plum and I'm a whoosell - that's whippet mixed with Jack Russell and poodle. I especially like swimming, leaping, catching, and croissants, and my favourite fragrance is fox poo. I live with Emma, an illustrator, and Rupert. My sister, Liffey, lives nearby. Over the last year I've been keeping a diary. Emma has helped with the pictures, but the words are all mine. Since 2012 Emma Chichester Clark has been delighting thousands of followers with her blog Plumdog, which records the day to day life of Plum, her dog, in Plum's own words and Emma's irresistible illustrations. This book collects Plum's best pages in book form
