Andy's cat, Olive, likes to play hide-and-seek. So Andy goes searching for Olive in every room of his house. ""Here, kitty, kitty, kitty,'' he calls as he peeks under the sofa, inside a shoe box and into a wastepaper basket. Andy keeps missing Olive, but readers can join in the fun and find her in the illustrations, camped in the laundry basket, under the bathtub, and in other, almost impossibleand funnyhiding places. Andy's ingenuity, and a tuna fish sandwich, finally bring Olive out of hiding. The full-color pictures are brimming with life; readers and listeners will linger over each page, searching for That Olive! (3-6)
