> Houndsley and Catina
> By James Howe
> Print/braille edition, $5.00
> In contracted braille
> Ages 4-8
> This early chapter book is an intimate look at friendship, in the
> tradition of Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad. The subtle dance of
> friendship - from holding your tongue to knowing what to say - is played
> out in three sweetly humorous tales about an unlikely, likable pair.
> Catina (a cat) and Houndsley (you guessed it, a dog) are best friends,
> and they encourage each other as best friends do. But what should
> Houndsley say about Catina's terrible, seventy-four-chapter memoir, Life
> Through the Eyes of a Cat? And can Catina find the right words of
> comfort for Houndsley after the big cooking contest fiasco, where he
> forgets to add the beans to his famous three-bean chili? In the end,
> Houndsley realizes that he is happy to experience the joy of cooking; he
> can live without fame. When Houndsley suggests that she can be famous
> for something else - like being a good friend - Catina purrs, "Being
> your friend is better than being famous."
