Houndsley and Catina by James Howe
Friendship between a hound dog named Houndsley and a cat named Catina is beautifully captured in this book. Houndsley aspires to be an award winning cook and Catina aspires to be a famous writer. Each find their goals a challenge. However, the supportive friendship between Houndsley and Catina are a role model for us all. They find a way to encourage each other which is an important part of friendship. This book is most appropriate for first grade children transitioning into chapter books. Beautiful illustrations by Marie-Louise Gay help the reader fit into the world of Houndsley and Catina.
