PreS-Gr 1-Ollie seems to know absolutely everything. He can fasten the seat belt on the airplane when the family takes a trip to New York City. He reads long words like ``hamburger'' from the menu, and even knows all about Ellis Island. His younger brother, Herbert, becomes quite discouraged with Ollie's store of knowledge, and wonders if he will ever be as smart. Story-line excitement builds as the older rabbit becomes lost on a crowded subway train, and a frantic family search begins. The fright turns to joy and relief when they find Ollie in the hotel lobby, and Herbert thoroughly agrees with Mother that, "`It's so good to have Ollie back.'" The energetic watercolor cartoons deftly capture all of the emotion and action. They are eye-catching, with pen-and-ink crosshatching lending detail and an infectuous, witty charm to each page. This is an entertaining choice for individual reading, or to use with a small audience. Many youngsters can (and will) empathize with Herbert's ``big brother'' syndrome.-Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
