Houndsley and Catina Plink and Plunk

By James Howe
Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay

A charming 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. And when Catina wants to go biking, Houndsley balks at going, even though Bert says he wants to come along. What is wrong with Catina? And what is wrong with Houndsley? Luckily, with Bert’s help, they discover that the 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.
