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?

"Opening the pages of Mister Got To Go, Where Are You?, a delightful picture book about the resident cat at the Sylvia Hotel, is like curling up in an overstuffed armchair and enjoying a satisfying visit with a much loved friend. Book sequels are sometimes contrived affairs which rely heavily upon the popularity of the first effort, and they often prove disappointing to the reader. This is definitely not the case with Lois Simmie's latest story. . . Cynthia Nugent's watercolour illustrations richly illustrate and extend the lost cat's experiences in strange and dangerous surroundings.

"Mister Got To Go, Where Are You? is told in gently expressive narrative form, with charming realistic paintings of the gray cat in all his adventures. The hypnotic cadenced repetitions and narrative style makes this a lovely, lulling story for older children's bedtimes or nap times."
