Houndsley and Catina Plink and Plunk

By James Howe
Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay

Now in paperback, this Candlewick Sparks title offers newly independent readers the chance to experience early fiction from one of today’s most talented author-and-illustrator teams. (Ages 5-7)

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. What is wrong with Catina? And what is wrong with Houndsley? From the creators of the E. B. White Read Aloud winner Houndsley and Catina comes another adventure about a charming pair of friends.

  • A funny, emotially satisfying story of two friends who have different ways of seeing the world
  • Charming dog and cat characters illustrated by Canada's 2009 nominee for the Hanns Christian Andersen Award
  • This book completes the seasonal quartet
