Description
He was an abandoned kitten who would one day become world-famous. Stuffed into the returned book slot at the public library in Spencer, Iowa, the filthy, frostbitten ginger cat was found the next morning by library director Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. He was immediately adopted by Myron and the rest of library staff and named Dewey Readmore Books. For the next 19 years he never stopped charming the people of Spencer with his enthusiasm, warmth, humility (for a cat), and, above all, his sixth sense about who needed him most. In this inspiring, moving story, Myron tells how Dewey became more than just a friend; as his fame grew from town to town, then state to state, and finally worldwide, he became a mascot and source of pride for the farming town, which was slowly recovering from the greatest economic crisis in its history.

"Myron's beguiling, poignant, and tender tale of survival, loyalty, and love is an unforgettable study in the mysterious and wondrous ways animals, and libraries, enrich humanity."Booklist (starred review)
