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.
James Howe is the author of the first two books about Houndsley and Catina. He has written more than seventy books for young readers, including the much-lauded BUNNICULA and its sequels. He lives in Yonkers, New York.
Marie-Louise Gay is the illustrator of HOUNDSLEY AND CATINA and its sequels, as well as the author and illustrator of many other award-winning
children’s books, including RAINY DAY MAGIC and the Stella and Sam series. She lives in Montreal.
