What was your emotional reaction as you read?       This book tells about the life of Dewey, how he came to be at the library and how he lived out his life there. This book had many funny parts about his life in the library and also a story that gripped you as you read about him.    Why? I am an animal lover and hate to see them in pain.         Who would you recommend this reading to and why?       I would highly recommend …

Nice story. I love cats, so when I read the title I just had to read the book and I'm glad I did. Cute, touching story.

You have to love Dewey. He's charming, adorable and helps to revive the spirits of a town. He makes you want to take him out of the book and give him a big hug!

About this topic


(Photo by Randy M. Cauthron) Vicki Myron shares the process involved in putting her labor of love on the pages of "Dewey: The Small-Town Libray Cat Who Touched the World."

Dewey, an abandoned kitten from the heartland, transforms a sleepy library, inspires a classic American town, and captures the hearts of animal lovers everywhere. Vicki Myron was a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm and an alcoholic husband. But her biggest challenge as the new head librarian in Spencer, Iowa, was to raise the spirits of a small, out-of-the-way town mired deep in the farm crisis of the 1980s.

Then, on the coldest morning of the year, Vicki found a tiny, bedraggled kitten almost frozen to death in the night drop box, and her life—and the town of Spencer—was never the same. Dewey, as the townspeople named the kitten, grew into a strutting, affable 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 he even ended up in a hit television documentary…in Japan! Through it all, Dewey remained a loyal companion, a beacon of hope not just for Vicki Myron, but for the entire town of Spencer as it slowly, steadily pulled itself up from the worst financial crisis in its long history.
