Abandoned in a library book-drop slot in the dead of winter, the small kitten who came to be known as Dewey Readmore Books miraculously endured the coldest night of the year. When librarian Vicki Myron found him in the morning, she wrapped him in her arms, gave him his first bath, and then introduced him to his new home: the library.

Dewey charmed Spencer, Iowa's library-goers, young and old, with his ability to know just which visitors needed a friend. And as word of his heartwarming tail - or rather, tale - spread, Dewey gained worldwide fame as proof positive that one small cat could change a struggling town, one person at a time.

In this adaptation of the number-one New York Times best seller Dewey, everyone's favorite library cat inspires a new audience of listeners with his story of courage, survival, and above all, love.

    " Way too much about a cat. I can understand how it brought the community together though. Too cutsey! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathi | 2/17/2014

    " Excellent book ~ shows how much animals can affect our lives! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 2/17/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina Lacey | 2/12/2014

    " This is an amazing book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 2/5/2014

    " This true story was fun to read, even though I'm not a "cat" person. The small town library details and people involved who were affected by this cat kept me reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill M. | 1/25/2014

    " Well that was just **##SpoilerAlert##** Depressing! This book has an interesting story to tell, but it is written like a housewife would write in her diary and perhaps submit to the local paper for an editorial. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Candy | 1/18/2014

    " I couldnt get into this book. It seemed it was more about the woman and the surrounding area rather than about the cat and what happened with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Bonczyk | 1/16/2014

    " This was the first memoir I've read about an animal. I loved it. I have always had cats myself so it was easy to identify with the love the author had for Dewey. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caroline Adal | 1/14/2014

    " Just can't get into books about animals. Found this one quite repetitive and felt it would have been better about half the length. Enjoyed learning about the author herself and the town of Spencer much more so than descriptions of Dewey getting into a box, sitting on a shelf etc. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carlee | 11/20/2013

    " This book is certainly a tear-jerker, and one that will appeal to anyone who has a heart, but especially to anyone who works love cats. The book is one of those wonderful experiences where the story may be about a cat, but there are lessons to be learned throughout that can apply to anyone's life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joe Valentine | 11/7/2013

    " This style of writing is so elementary that I not only noticed it within the first few minutes, but I finished the book only by making it a game of rewriting it in my head in a way that would not repel the reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma Walker | 10/22/2013

    " Loved it but balled my eyes out at the end! Have read this for cats and Marley and Me for dogs and that's me done with this genre! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 9/28/2013
