Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

Tim Gallagher/Sioux City Journal

Title: Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World
Author: Vicky Myron
Pages: 288
Yearly Count b: 88

Dewey was a little cat that had been placed in the night deposit book box at the Spencer Library in Iowa, on the coldest night of the year. This is a true story! The library staff nursed him back to health and he was forever grateful, his whole life he lived to please people because these people were the ones that saved him.

Vicky Myron writes about her adopted cat friend Dewey (short for Dewey Readmore Books).It is the story of one cat, not just any cat, but a cat who believed in he was there to change Spencer Iowa. This is the story of how he touched not just those in Spencer folks from around the world. He proved himself to not be just any cat, but a cat who deserved all the attention he received.

I enjoyed listening to this book from Hachette audiobooks, in the winter when I have tons of Christmas projects to finish I enjoy multi-tasking by listening to a book and knitting or sewing little gifts for my family at the same time. Dewey was a read cute for sure. However I would recommend to you only if you are even a little of an animal lover, but for sure if you hate them this book will be a little much. If you can't get enough of your pets and other people's furry friends, and think they are talking to you and asking you for things....this is for sure the book for you! It was great!

I've been on the fence about this one since I'm not an animal lover. I think I've made my decision now. Thanks! :)

After I read this book, I wished my local library would get a cat.

I enjoyed this book. It's about much more than Dewey. It's also a story of empowerment for the author.

I've been waiting for a few weeks for my turn to come up on the wait list for this book at the library...I'm not getting it any time soon!

This sounds like a book up my alley! I've seen some great reviews. I think I need more audio books so I can keep up with the TBR pile!
