Illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith.

When Ned loses his cat Pistachio on Page 1, he begins a search that will take him straight through the book until he finds her "in the end." A mystery, a hide-and-seek game, and a counting book all in one, children will have great fun tracking Pistachio from page to page and discovering her ultimate hiding place. A re-illustrated version of a book originally published in 1973 and long out of print, this re-issue will delight young detectives.

Look inside the book!


"This is a book that belongs in every child's collection…a wonderful teaching tool for both parents and teachers."

Children's Literature

"This jaunty picture book offers plenty of fun for eagle-eyed readers."

Publishers Weekly

"The fun is in the detail and children will enjoy the mischief as they count and find the cat."
