Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A charming tale about paddling past fears with the help of true friends.Houndsley loves to canoe. Catina loves to ride bikes. But when Houndsley takes Catina out canoeing, she chatters the whole time, drowning out the sounds Houndsley loves, like the call of birds or the plink and plunk of the paddles. And when Catina wants to go biking, Houndsley balks at going, even though Bert says he wants to come along. What is wrong with Catina? And what is wrong with Houndsley? Luckily, with Bert's help, they discover that the things you're afraid of are easier to do with a good friend or two at your side.

Horn Book Review

After Houndsley the dog admits to his best friend Catina, a cat, that he's scared to ride a bike because he doesn't know how, he discovers that Catina is also afraid--afraid to go canoeing with him because she can't swim. Appealing watercolor, pencil, and collage illustrations provide the perfect backdrop for this reassuring tale of learning new skills and conquering old fears. (c) Copyright 2010.
