Got to Go has made his home at the Sylvia Hotel for seven years now. And it is the best home a cat could wish for! There was always a comfy lobby chair or a warm windowsill to sleep on and a nice bit of fish from the kitchen. Mister Fisher, the manager, still talks about how the hotel is no place for a cat but Got to Go doesn't worry. Then he sees a man carrying a tantalizing parcel that smells like a nice bit of fish and follows him along the streets for hours until the hotel is nowhere in sight. And nothing is going right at the hotel with Got to Go missing from his usual windowsill. The staff all come to realize, "a hotel without Got to Go is not a proper hotel." Will Got to Go be able to find his way back to his hotel home and family?

Read from the Book

"Got to Go had the best home a cat could have at the Sylvia Hotel. When he was tired, he slept on the chairs in the lobby or on the windowsill in Mister Foster's office. When he was hungry, he padded down to the kitchen to see what Cook had put in his dish. Quite often it was a nice bit of fish. Got to Go liked a nice bit of fish better than anything..."

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Mister Got to Go by Lois Simmie and Cynthia Nugent: "During a storm, a gray cat seeks shelter in a hotel, where Mr. Foster, the manager, decides to let him stay until the sky clears. The cat, however, plans to make the place his permanent home and succeeds in endearing himself to the rest of the staff. Although Mr. Foster regularly announces that the cat has got to go when the rain stops, the Vancouver weather offers one rainy day after another. By the time the feline tangles with a raccoon that is frightening a guest, Mr. Foster's affection for him is clear. A trip to the vet results in the cat's official name: Got to Go. Nugent's watercolors bring both animal and setting, the historic Sylvia Hotel, to life. Interesting use of large and small illustrations and various type sizes provides additional visual interest. Got to Go will win listeners and readers as surely as he convinced Mr. Foster to let him stay." (School Library Journal)
