Overview

Louie and his mother had a favorite game.
He would run away . . .
And she would catch him!
Then she would say, “Gotcha, Louie” And give him a squeeze and a tickle.

One day, while Grandma and Grandpa are visiting, Louie tires of listening to the grownups talk. He wants to play “gotcha” instead. So he runs outside with his goose, Rosie, calling, “Catch us, Mommy!” When the grownups realize Louie is missing, everyone looks high and low for him, but he’s nowhere to be found. Luckily, his mother figures out just the right way to make Louie come out of hiding.

Louie enjoys playing "Gotcha!" with his mother at the beach.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ehrlich captures the catch-in-the-throat feeling that comes with a lost child, and the exuberance of the reunion is right there too... A lost-and-found story that will work for lap sits or story hours." Booklist, ALA

"The sunny illustrations capture the mood and the setting perfectly with bright colors and simple lines." School Library Journal

Publishers Weekly
The hero of Louie's Goose and his mother have a special summer pastime: "He would run away and she would catch him." But the game takes on serious overtones when Louie feels left out of Grandma and Grandpa's after-dinner conversation and disappears into the tall beach grass in Gotcha, Louie! by H.M. Ehrlich, illus. by Emily Bolam. (Mar.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-The boy and his stuffed toy introduced in Louie's Goose (Houghton, 2000) are back at the beach for another summer of fun. "Louie and his mother had a favorite game. He would run away- and she would catch him" and say "Gotcha, Louie!" The child wants to play this game over and over again and his mom usually complies. One day they have guests for dinner and she doesn't hear her son when he takes Rosie and shouts "Catch us, Mommy!" After a while the adults realize that he is missing and set off to look for him. They find his goose in the grass, but no Louie. Finally, his mother shouts, "Catch me, Louie!" and he comes bounding out of hiding. The sunny illustrations capture the mood and the setting perfectly with bright colors and simple lines. The panic of losing Louie and the relief in finding him are handled in a comforting way and will appeal to many youngsters.-Genevieve Gallagher, New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Louie and his favorite stuffed goose return for a seaside adventure. It's summertime once again and Louie and his family are at their vacation house on the shore. The tow-headed tot whiles away languid summer days playing "Gotcha" with his mom; petitioning her over and again to catch him. When a visit from his grandparents becomes long on talk and short on play, Louie decides to take matters into his own hands. Unbeknownst to the adults, Louie, with Rosie in tow, scampers away to hide. After a thorough search fails to reveal the elusive pair, Mom devises a wily plan to draw out the duo. Ehrlich's (Dancing Class, 2001, etc.) simple tale neatly captures a child's glee in playing this much favored pastime. Even when he's missing, there's no cause for alarm as wayward giggles and other clues reassure the adults of Louie's nearby presence. Bolam's (Murphy Meets the Treadmill, 2001, etc.) sunny illustrations sparkle with the bonhomie of carefree summer days. Large, visible brush strokes in the gaily-colored paintings give the semblance of windswept sands and gusty seas. This jolly little tale heralds a welcome return for Louie and his faithful red rooster, adding a sprinkling of summer fun to brighten someone's day-regardless of the season. (Picture book. 3-6)
