*Starred Review* Every Saturday morning, Houndsley, Catina, and Bert visit the library. But one week, Trixie the librarian barely greets them and goes home early. As they leave, the three friends notice a sign indicating that the library will be closing. Determined to comfort Trixie, they visit her home, only to find her jumping joyfully on her trampoline. Newly enrolled in circus school, she's eager to retire but sad that, with no librarian, the library must close. The following week, at Trixie's retirement party, Bert asks for her help in finding a library school, so that he can enroll and keep the library open. Hurrah! The charm of this amusing beginning-reader book is that just when the plot seems entirely predictable, the turn of a page surprises readers with a wacky left turn in the story, even while remaining true to the characters. Created with watercolor, pencil, and collage, the illustrations express varied emotions, maintaining a buoyant tone overall. Kudos to Howe and Gay for the seventh satisfying entry in the dependable Houndsley and Catina series. Grades K-2. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
