Dewey: The True Story of a World Famous Library Cat
On the coldest morning of the year, a tiny, bedraggled kitten is stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library in Iowa. The next morning, librarian Vicki Myron finds him almost frozen to death — and decides then and there that he will become the library’s official pet. As Dewey is nursed back to health, he comes to love his new home in this small midwestern town. He spreads his special brand of affection to the library visitors, winning the hearts of everyone around him. As his fame grows, visitors drive hundreds of miles to meet Dewey, and people from all over the world become his ardent fans. Through it all, Dewey remains a loyal companion – a beacon of hope not just for Vicki, but for the entire town of Spencer as it pulls itself up from the worst financial crisis in its history. This is Dewey’s unforgettable true story, which proves that real love comes in many forms.
“Even confirmed cat-haters would warm to the true story of Dewey… Far more than just a cute cat book, it is a real feel-good story about the whole community whose lives Dewey touched.” The Bookseller
