Publisher's Summary

On the coldest morning of the year, Vicki Myron found a tiny, bedraggled kitten almost frozen to death in the night drop box of the library where she worked, and her life - and the town of Spencer, Iowa - would never be the same.Vicki was a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm and an alcoholic, abusive husband. But her biggest challenge as the new head librarian in Spencer was to raise the spirits of a small, out-of-the-way town mired deep in the farm crisis of the 1980s.Dewey, as the townspeople named the kitten, quickly grew into a strutting, adorable 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 people all over the world fell in love with him.Through it all, Dewey remained a loyal companion, a beacon of hope not just for Vicki, but for the entire town of Spencer as it slowly, steadily pulled itself up from the worst financial crisis in its long history. Dewey won hearts and proved to everyone he encountered that unconditional love comes in many forms.

A memorable story of a country town library cat

Dewey is a remarkable cat who was rescued by the manager of Spencer public library when his little frozen body was found in the afterhours dropbox. From that moment he was adopted by the library manager and the library community and his magic awoke this sleepy little town in Iowa. How can one cat, whom you've never met, from the other side of the world, inspire and delight, warm the cockles of your heart and make you sob like he was your own? A must read for cat lovers. 5 stars
