SYNOPSIS: DEWEY-The Small Town Cat Who Touched The World
My Review will follow soon!
How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa. Dewey's story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer 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. As his fame grew from town to town, then state to state, and finally, amazingly, worldwide, Dewey became more than just a friend; he became a source of pride for an extraordinary Heartland farming town pulling its way slowly back from the greatest crisis in its long history.

I don't have a pet now, but I used to have two dogs, Friedrich (a dachshund) and Pookie (a Manchester Terrior Toy). It was a while ago now, but I still miss them very much!

Thank ya'll for entering. ngmars, I used to have a basset named Arthur but when he died I couldn't bare it. My BINGO BOOK BUDDY you always see on the right column is a dachshund mix from the rescue and is my "grand puppy" and the best little doggie! I am tempted to get a new one now that I am retiring but can't make up my mind! They are such a great source of joy and comfort! I hear this kitty cat DEWEY is quite the same..did you watch the video?

We are down to just one old dog named Kona. She had a brother named Hilo but we lost him two years ago. Kona doesn't have too much more time as her back legs are going but she still loves to play for short periods of time. Would love to win this book as I enjoy anything about animals.
