Recycled Art

Every once in awhile I like to ponder the art that is hidden in the games. Surely you have noticed a few re-occurring elements placed in several games, like the golden horse statue in Stay Tuned for Danger and Message in a Haunted Mansion. But some items that are re-used often get a few touch-ups to look different, making it a challenge to identify where the item was originally located. For example, check out this cat book that was originally used in Warnings at Waverly Academy, but was given a makeover and was placed in an environment in a newer game:

Any idea where it could have made a guest appearance? Hint: it is in a place where a few old things are kept.

Looks like several super sleuths are hot on the trail to solving the weekend puzzle, but so far, no one has completely cracked it. Here's a nudge: rotation counts.

If I'm not mistaken, that book is also in CRY. In the Rube Goldberb puzzle at Lamont's store, we get a first rate view of this book in that excellent cutscene. :D
