Dewey Book by Vicki Myron Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*


DEWEY's back with a new cover for the holidays!!

DEWEY~ The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

by Vicki Myron

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 loved this book~it was so touching and even gave me a warm feeling when I was reading it. Of course me being a cat person~I had to read it. But I do believe that even if you are not in love with cats you will love this book!

    Plagued by a small mouse day after day, my good friend lent me his cat. It was on a stake out, saw the mouse, and in twenty minutes had it cornered. Good cat!

  45. The book Katie Up and Down the Hall by Glenn Plaskin sounds great. Books about animals are always wonderful. I'm sure Jon Stewart's new book will also be worth buying.

    I also liked you on Facebook and followed you on Twitter.
    Thanks.

    Right now, one of my cats is obsessed with the rubber cement strip that attaches a credit card to the paper it's mailed on. He's been scratching at the paper for 2 days. I finally put it under the laptop & he's trying to flip the laptop in order to get at it.
