DEWEY: THE SMALL-TOWN LIBRARY CAT WHO TOUCHED THE WORLD by Vicki Myron and Brett Witter

I was prepared not to like DEWEY: THE SMALL-TOWN LIBRARY CAT WHO TOUCHED THE WORLD. That’s possibly because it has been so sickeningly popular and possibly because, as an old writing teacher once warned me, "animals are hard." But when my sister gave it to me for Christmas, I felt obligated to read it, even more so when her husband berated her, saying, "A whole book--about a cat?!" Yes, and about a librarian who loved the cat and a town who loved the cat. It’s a fine biography of all three. It’s even made me want to visit Spencer, Iowa.

How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa.
