A lovely story about the impact a cat had on a community. Dewey was dropped into a library book return box as a kitten where the staff found him in the morning, nearly frozen. He was adopted by the library and went on to impact the lives of the library staff, its patrons and the whole town.

I suppose if one likes corn pone (there's lots about corn in this book), this book might go over well but I had a very hard time reading it. This was a huge best seller, right? Cats--OK. Libraries--OK. In the search for a highly undemanding ebook, how could I go wrong? The book took me back to the Reader's Digest, a staple of my childhood reading.

Precious, heartwarming, well told story. As a cat lover I really appreciated the descriptions of our felines quirky behaviors.
