This book is from my own personal library.
A kitten was only a few weeks old when he was stuffed into the Spencer Public Library’s book slot. The library director Vicki Myron petitioned the library board for permission to keep the kitten. The petition was granted and the kitten had found itself a home. The kitten was then given the name Dewey Readmore Books and the cat won the hearts of the town. For nineteen years Dewey charmed the town and the world with his personality as he ruled over Spencer Public Library.
I enjoyed this book so much that after I had finished reading it I did a search for Dewey Readmore Books on the internet and spent time watching videos of a cat who knew he was king of a library. I liked how the author Vicki Myron shared the town’s history and her personal trials and triumphs. It made understanding her attachment to the cat easy to see.
I recommend reading Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron, especially if one is a cat lover. It’s good light hearted reading that can make the reader chuckle at some points and cry at others.
