Houndsley and Catina at the Library

author: James Howe
illustrator: Marie-Louise Gay

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

It’s 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 doesn’t tell a joke or recommend a book like she always does. That’s when the friends find out the news—the library is closing! With Trixie retiring and enrolled in circus school, there’s no one to take her place as head librarian . . . or is there? James Howe and Marie-Louise Gay once again enchant with a love letter to the library, good friends, the joy of learning, and self-reinvention.

“The charm of this amusing beginning-reader book is that just when the plot seems entirely predictable, the turn of a page surprises readers.” —Booklist (starred review)
