KIRKUS REVIEW

In the fourth of Livermore's hide-and-seek picture books, three kittens dress for winter and go off to the soda fountain, library, playground, stable, grocery store, and sledding hill--dropping mittens at every spot, though Livermore doesn't drop a word about it till they've returned home. Then, after Mother Cat's ""You naughty kittens!/ No pie for you,"" Livermore urges: ""Oh where could they be?/ Can you help the kittens?/ Please will you go back/ And look for their mittens?"" Livermore makes the hidden-picture game a little easier this time, and she makes the usual one-color background mauve--an odd choice for the naive drawings and simple exercise. Otherwise diverting enough, with a hidden, Sesame Street-style objective.
