The charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa. The story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat, starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the book return slot at the Spencer, Iowa, Public Library. He 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. Dewey won her heart, and the hearts of the staff, by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love. For the next nineteen 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.--From publisher description.… (mais)

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. ( )

Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron is a heart warming book and is the best book I've read in a long time.

Let's be real: The world is full of negativity these days. How to cure it? Pick up a book as heartwarming and lovely as Vicki Myron's Dewey. This orange library cat will cure all of the hatred in your soul for crappy and garbage people. Vicki and her library staff taking in a fluffy, little, frostbitten fur ball is incredible, but then seeing the good he put into the world... That really made my heart sing.

Is it a literary masterpiece? No. I doubt people are going to pick apart themes and act like this is the new 1984. But it is a positive story that will make you feel good inside. I needed this book so desperately in my life, and it's honestly one of my new favourites.

Five out of five stars. ( )

Ok, a touching, feel good, pet story can be an enjoyable read -- I've read a few in my days. Unfortunately, there's a thin line between touching and corny. And in my opinion, the author crossed that line way too many times. The story takes place in a small, corn surrounded town in Iowa so perhaps that's the effect she was going for. Dewey himself, is quite the character. You gotta love him ! ( )

One frigid Midwestern winter night in 1988, a ginger kitten was shoved into the after-hours book-return slot at the public library in Spencer, Iowa. And in this tender story, Myron, the library director, tells of the impact the cat, named DeweyReadmore Books, had on the library and its patrons, and on Myron herself. Through her developing relationship with the feline, Myron recounts the economic and social history of Spencer as well as her own success story—despite an alcoholic husband, living on welfare, and health problems ranging from the difficult birth of her daughter, Jodi, to breast cancer. After her divorce, Myron graduated college (the first in her family) and stumbled into a library job. She quickly rose to become director, realizing early on that this was a job I could love for the rest of my life. Dewey, meanwhile, brings disabled children out of their shells, invites businessmen to pet him with one hand while holding the Wall Street Journal with the other, eats rubber bands and becomes a media darling. The book is not only a tribute to a cat—anthropomorphized to a degree that can strain credulity (Dewey plays hide and seek with Myron, can read her thoughts, is mortified by his hair balls)—it's a love letter to libraries. (Sept.)
