Description

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.

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.
