Houndsley enjoys canoe rides so quiet he can hear the plink and plunk of the paddles. Unfortunately, whenever his best friend Catina climbs into the boat, she spoils it by talking nonstop. Bike riding is one of Catina's favorite things to do, but when Houndsley receives a bicycle as a gift, he is reluctant to go for a ride with Catina-even though the two have never ridden together. Why do these friends behave in such puzzling ways? After a bike ride, a picnic, and some time to talk, the two friends discover the reasons. Full-color watercolor, pencil, and collage illustrations.
