Houndsley and Catina

By James Howe
Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay

This charming trio of chapters implicitly testifies to the adage that opposites attract. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Catina wants to be a famous writer. Houndsley is an excellent cook. Catina thinks Houndsley is a wonder. Houndsley thinks Catina is a very good friend. So what should Houndsley say about Catina’s seventy-four-chapter memoir? And can Catina find the right words of comfort for Houndsley after the big cooking contest fiasco? The subtle dance of friendship -- from holding your tongue to knowing what to say -- is played out in three sweetly humorous tales about an unlikely, likable pair.

  • Ideal for teaching children about the value of friendship and honesty.
