Dewey: a Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

I had a feeling I was going to like this book. After all, I like libraries, I like cats, and I like Vicki Myron. Still, I was a little worried that it wouldn't live up to all the hype. But I did like it. I liked it alot! I think you will too.

Dewey is the story of a cat who was dropped in a library book drop in Spencer, Iowa. When the staff found him, they decided to keep him. He became a fixture at the library and eventually became famous. The book is about Dewey and what a great cat he was, but it is also about Spencer and about Iowa. It's a bit about libraries too, and why they are important. It's all told in the direct, no-nonsense style of Vicki Myron, the former director of the Spencer Public Library.

Cats, libraries, small town Iowa... you can't go wrong reading this book!
