Dewey is a small town library cat living in Iowa. His “mama” librarian Vickie Myron found him one morning, half frozen. In the book return box, Dewey lived for a number of years – 18 to be exact – at the library. He is one of those cats who instantly knew who needed comfort, is having a bad day, needs a hug, or for him to set in their lap.. Dewey created a community. Vickie wanted the library to be more than a place to check out books. She wanted it to be a place where people could come. Read, relax, fellowship or do absolutely nothing. With Dewey’s magic she did exactly that. Dewey has passed away, but his love lives on in the lives he touched.
Dewey’s Nine Lives
The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat Who Inspired Millions
by Vickie Myron with Bret Witter
There are some interesting stories in the book about Dewey, but for the most part is comprised of nine inspiring stories about other amazing cats told by their owners to Dewey’s Mom. These stories come from all over the world as Dewey touches the lives of so many people in many different places. You will thoroughly enjoy reading about Tobi, Mr. Sir Bob. Christmas Cat, Marshall. Church Cat and all the other cats and what effect they had on their “Mamas or Daddies”. Dewey wasn’t an angel but he came mighty close to being one.
Dewey’s stories will inspire readers to laugh, cry and believe in the magic of animals to touch and change individual lives.
Highly recommended. This is the second book in the Dewey Series. Also recommend you read the first book – Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat that Touched the World – and learn more about Dewey and his magic. A delightful read.
