Book Description:

Her first thought upon hearing a strange sound coming from the book drop one frigid January morning was “this can’t be good.” In fact, for both the tiny kitten found shivering in the metal box’s corner and for Myron, director of the Spencer Public Library, the discovery was the best thing that ever happened to either of them, and to the tiny Iowa farming community beset by an unrelenting string of economic challenges. Filthy and frostbitten, the kitten was in dire need of massive doses of TLC; fortunately, the library staff, patrons, and townspeople had plenty to spare. The story of how a bedraggled orange fur ball became "Dewey Readmore Books," an enchantingly irresistible library mascot capable of bringing international attention to a small midwestern town and melting the heart of even the most curmudgeonly visitor, is uplifting enough; but woven among the cute-cat anecdotes are Myron’s own inspirational stories of enduring welfare, the abuses of an alcoholic husband, breast cancer, and single motherhood. 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.

My Review:

This was a great book! I am a big animal and especially a cat lover, so it was quite a touching book. I think that some cats are angels sent to us to help us when we need them. I have seen it in person, so I believe it.

I do recommend reading this in the privacy of your own home since you might be moved to tears like I was! Keep the kleenex handy.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This is a great book for people who have known a really special cat. I gave Dewey to a person who owned a Himalayan who was such a cat. I think he will be touched by Dewey's story.
