Houndsley and Catina and Cousin Wagster
author: James Howe
illustrator: Marie-Louise Gay
When his cousin Wagster comes for a visit, Houndsley is excited. Wagster is all adventure and enthusiasm and razzle-dazzle, and all his friends love him. Even Catina thinks Wagster is fun and good at everything, and pretty soon Houndsley is starting to feel a little bit invisible. But Houndsley and Catina are best friends, and certainly Cousin Wagster won’t change that—right? James Howe and Marie-Louise Gay have created a tender and funny story about some of the ways that friendships can change, and how they also stay exactly the same.
“A satisfying homage to friendship and self-confidence, this will make a welcome addition to the easy-reader shelf.” —Booklist
