Houndsley and Catina Plink and Plunk

By James Howe
Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay

The creators of the E. B. White Read Aloud Winner "Houndsley and Catina" offer a charming new tale about paddling past fears -- with the help of true friends.

Houndsley loves to canoe. Catina loves to ride bikes. But when Houndsley takes Catina out canoeing, she chatters the whole time, drowning out the sounds Houndsley loves, like the call of birds or the plink and plunk of the paddles. When Catina suggests going biking, Houndsley doesn t want to. Luckily, they discover that things you re afraid of are easier to do with a good friend or two at your side.

  • Delightful springtime setting, which rounds out all four seasons for Houndsley and Catina.
  • Reassuring take on common fears --- water and riding a bicycle.
