Description

Got to Go is a large gray cat that lives in an old vine covered hotel across from the beach. One fateful day, Got to Go's pleasant life at the Sylvia Hotel is turned upside down when Arnie -- a very small and very noisy Yorkshire Terrier -- arrives. No more afternoon naps on the warm, wide windowsill; no more brushing his whiskers against the hotel manager's toothbrush; and no way of escaping the constant barking of Arnie! After a series of misadventures, the hotel manager, Mr. Foster, comes up with a plan: Where else would a mischievous dog be happy but in the company of Madame LaTour, Mr. Foster's dear friend from Paris, and her lovely dog Fifi?
First published by Raincoast in 2001, Mister Got To Go and Arnie is another successful collaboration by award-winning author Lois Simmie and renowned artist and art teacher Cynthia Nugent, creators of the much-loved bestseller Mr. Got To Go: The Cat That Wouldn't Leave. Simmie's and Nugent's first book was a Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice Award winner, the Saskatchewan Book Award's Best Children's Book, and the Alberta Book Award Best Illustrated Book. Nugent and Simmie once again bring to life the world of the spirited cat Got To Go and the splendour of the Sylvia Hotel in this delightful and engaging sequel.
