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.
