Angela Throgmorton lives with her mangy cat, the troublesome but lovable Old Tom. One morning Angela receives some exciting news: she's won an all-expenses paid luxury holiday--for one. Angela is sad to leave Old Tom, but there is plenty of food in the freezer and he needs to clean his room anyway. Angela visits museums and royal gardens, she rides on boats and trains, and she photographs everything so she can share the pictures with Old Tom when she gets home. But everywhere she goes, she sees something that reminds her of her beloved pet. The lonelier she gets, the more she misses Old Tom. Then a wonderful surprise turns Angela's solo adventure into a delightful holiday for two. Leigh Hobbs's colorful, zany illustrations capture the humor and warmth of a special friendship between two memorable characters.
