Summary:

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.

    Great light reading, needed more cat stories. Almost like an abridged story.

    Such a nice story! Just went on a bit too long and I did not listen to the last disk.

    A pleasant and true story about Dewey, a small town library cat who becomes world famous due to his friendliness, affection and antics. It's a fairly short story as it should be because if you're a cat owner like myself you know that they don't do alot on a day to day basis. I enjoyed listening to this story on my commute to/from work though it was a little slow in parts. If you're looking to relax and escape a little while dealing with your daily travels, this is a good book to get.

    Dewey was an easy "read". Having a cat and dog, and being a pet lover, this story touched my heart. I wish my library had a cat! I would recommend this for anyone who needs something from the warmer side of life to enjoy.
