Houndsley and Catina and the Quiet Time

By James Howe
Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay

The creators of the E. B. White Read Aloud winner Houndsley and Catina offer a charming sequel about taking time out from the hustle and bustle.

The first snow of winter has fallen, and Houndsley is very happy, as he loves the quiet time. Catina does not like the quiet time, however, and she does not enjoy being snowed in. What about all her plans for the day? What if their evening concert has to be canceled? With a bit of pretending, a few books and board games, a flourish of creativity, and some time to dream, Houndsley helps Catina let go of her worries and enjoy the snowy day, wherever it might take them.

  • "Using language appropriate for new readers, Howe crafts a knowing paean ... to the care and feeding of friendship," Kirkus Reviews on "Houndsley and Catina".
