Synopsis

Dewey: The True Story of a World-Famous Library Cat by Vicki Myron, Brett Witter

A special adaptation for younger readers of the international bestselling Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. A heart-warming story about the library cat who inspired the lives of those around him as well as people across the world. At only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, Dewey was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. The next morning librarian, Vicki Myron, finds him and nurses him back to health, deciding then and there that he would become the library's offical pet! Dewey soon learns to love his new home, spending each day spreading his own special brand of love to those that enter the library and winning the hearts of everyone around him.
