Dewey the Library Cat :: Book Review

You’ve probably heard of an alley cat, a Persian cat and maybe even a Chinese hairless cat – but have you ever in your life heard of a Library Cat? Meet Dewey – the real-life library cat who made a very big impression on the members of his small town library – and left a very big hole in their hearts when he passed away after almost 20 years at the library.


Drop-box Dewey

On the morning of the one of the coldest days of the year, Spencer, Iowa librarian Vicki Myron found a tiny orange kitten nearly frozen to death in the library’s book drop. She saved the kitten’s life and named him Dewey Readmore Books. Little did Vicki know Dewey would go on to become one of the town’s most popular and famous residents ever!


Dewey’s Digs

After Vicki decided that Dewey’s home would be [kwlink 16139 ]the library[/kwlink], the residents of the town of Spencer got to know him – and his crazy antics – pretty well. Dewey loved to play with his ball of red yarn, sleep in the smallest of boxes and hitch rides on the library’s book cart. But what Dewey loved most was people, and whenever someone needed him, Dewey always seemed to be there.


Dewey Mania

Once the word started to spread about the library’s special cat, people couldn’t seem to get enough of Dewey. He appeared in tons of papers, as well as TV shows and [kwlink 20155 ]documentary[/kwlink] films. And now he has his own book for kids - Dewey the Library Cat - so that children all over the world can learn more about this special cat.


Dewey Dies

We’re not giving much away by telling you that [kwlink 17896 ]Dewey does die[/kwlink] at the end of the book (the good parts about his life and friends are all in the middle). After all, cats only live so long and Dewey actually had a particularly long and healthy (not to mention extraordinary!) life. He lived to be almost 20 years old. After he died, Vicki didn’t think she would ever replace her dear library cat – but then she met another kitten in distress that just seemed to fit the role as Dewey’s successor purr-fectly! Dewey, however, will always be remembered – he’s even been honored in the town monument!
