Abandoned in a library book-drop slot in the dead of winter, the small kitten who came to be known as Dewey Readmore Books miraculously endured the coldest night of the year. When librarian Vicki Myron found him in the morning, she wrapped him in her arms, gave him his first bath, and then introduced him to his new home: the library. Dewey charmed Spencer, Iowa’s library-goers, young and old, with his ability to know just which visitors needed a friend. And as word of his heartwarming tail — or rather, tale — spread, Dewey gained worldwide fame as proof positive that one small cat could change a struggling town, one person at a time. In this adaptation of the #1 New York Times bestseller Dewey, everyone’s favorite library cat inspires a new audience of listeners with his story of courage, survival, and above all, love.

& Taylor

Follows the development of an endearing kitten abandoned in an Iowa library drop-box into an affable library mascot who made many friendships with the library staff and patrons of all ages.

My 9 year old & I completely enjoyed this captivating story. The narrators voice portrayed the story and emotions very well. Great for adults & kids who are looking for a nice story to listen to on the drive into work or to swimming lessons. There is a sad ending, but it does not drag on too long; I cried, small children may have a hard time with it.
