Dewey Summary

Dewey: The small-town library-cat who touched the world by Vicki Myron

On the coldest morning of the year, Vicki Myron found a tiny, bedraggled kitten almost frozen to death in the night drop box of the library where she worked, and her life -- and the town of Spencer, Iowa -- would never be the same.Vicki was a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm and an alcoholic, abusive husband. But her biggest challenge as the new head librarian in Spencer was to raise the spirits of a small, out-of-the-way town mired deep in the farm crisis of the 1980s.Dewey, as the townspeople named the kitten, quickly grew into a strutting, adorable library cat whose antics kept patrons in stitches, and whose sixth sense about those in need created hundreds of deep and loving friendships. As his fame grew, people drove hundreds of miles to meet Dewey, and people all over the world fell in love with him.Through it all, Dewey remained a loyal companion, a beacon of hope not just for Vicki, but for the entire town of Spencer as it slowly, steadily pulled itself up from the worst financial crisis in its long history. Dewey won hearts and proved to everyone he encountered that unconditional love comes in many forms.

Dewey Reviews

'A HUGELY ENJOYABLE true story of how one adorable library cat touched the lives of everyone who met him on' -- Australian Women's Weekly 20081105 '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 20081113 'heart-warming' ***** -- Star Magazine 20081113 'feelgood feline biography' -- Evening Standard 20081113 'An irresistible story... It has a heroine, Vicki, who beautifully relates her own experiences... This is a wonderful book beacuse it isn't really about Dewey. He is merely the bouncing, orange, ever-loving thread that holds the story together. It is about the foibles of small-town America and the people who live there - it's Peyton Place with a cat... Dewey wins hearts and minds like George W.Bush never could.' -- Daily Mail 20081113
