Mister Got to Go and Arnie By Lois Simmie

Mister Got to Go and ArnieIn Mister Got to Go and Arnie, written by Lois Simmie and illustrated by Cynthia Nugent, a cat named "Got to Go" has a very comfortable existence in a hotel, until it has to share the hotel with a noisy little dog, Arnie.  Thankfully Arnie turns out to be a real pain for everyone, except for the French lady that decides to adopt him and take him to live with her.

Anna and I both enjoyed this book.  We thought the cat's name was rather funny and we got a kick out of how the cat tried to get rid of the dog.

On Cynthia Nugent's blog I found a Mister Got to Go at the Sylvia Hotel post that explains that the Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver is the setting for the Mister Got to Go books.  It's also there that I discovered that this book is not the only Mister Got to Go book.  There was one before Mister Got to Go and Arnie and there is another that they are attempting to get published.  We will be watching for both of these books.
