Book Review Of ” Plum” By Sean Hayes, Scott Icenogle And Illustrated By, Robin Thompson @SimonKids @SeanHayes @ScottIcenogle
Plum will not stay glum.
For as long as she can remember, Plum has lived at the Mary Fitzgerald Orphanage, wishing and hoping for a family. When a sudden snowfall threatens a delivery of presents on Christmas Eve, Plum is determined to save Christmas—even for the kids who laugh at her.
Plum’s pure heart grants her an unexpected reward. When she eats a cake left behind by a mysterious magician, she is transported into the Land of Sweets. But Christmas here is threatened, too—by a sourness that is spreading from the center of the land. Plum’s determined to help, and in doing so, she might just find the family she’s always dreamed of, thanks to a good heart—and Christmas magic!

I have to start off with this statement, I love the diversity in this Childrens book! Two daddies? I am here for it. I love that Sean and his husband Scott were not afraid to add same sex parents into this book. I absolutely adored it for there very reason.
Next I want to say that the illustrations were beautiful. I loved the muted, yet colorful images that made up this story. The cover with the swipe of glitter was a nice touch. I loved the story, I love that Plum never game up, she always saw the bright side of things, and wanted to make sure everyone around her was happy, and that they had a nice Christmas. She was a very sweet little girl, with a big warm heart. I think this whole book just sends a very positive message, and I am so excited that it is part of our personal library! I look forward to seeing the next book that this husband/husband duo come out with. This book definitely was a must read, and gave us all the Christmas feels.
