Houndsley and Catina at the Library

author: James Howe
illustrator: Marie-Louise Gay

series name:
Houndsley and Catina

Itís Saturday, and Houndsley, Catina, and their friend Bert are looking forward to their weekly visit to the library. But when the trio arrives, they find that Trixie, the librarian, seems different. She doesnít tell a joke or recommend a book like she always does. Thatís when the friends find out the news ó the library is closing! With Trixie retiring and enrolled in circus school, thereís no one to take her place as head librarian . . . or is there? James Howe and Marie-Louise Gay have created another engaging tale about what it means to be a supportive friend and how itís never too late to learn something new.

The charming duo returns with a love letter to the library, good friends, the joy of learning, and self-reinvention.
