Houndsley and Catina and the Quiet Time

author: James Howe
illustrator: Marie-Louise Gay

series name:
Houndsley and Catina

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.

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.
