In the 1980s, the farm crisis hit Spencer, Iowa, hard and to support her family, single mother Vicki Myron took a job as the sleepy little town’s head librarian. But she soon had an unauthorized helper. One frigidly cold morning, Vicki came upon a tiny, half-frozen kitten in the night drop box. Dewey, as he came to be known, grew into a people “person” whose rascally antics provided laugh-out-loud entertainment for library patrons, and his sixth sense about those in need made him famous, drawing people from hundreds of miles around. The story of how Dewey came to be a beacon of hope for Vicki, the town of Spencer and for all those whose lives he touched, will capture the hearts of animal lovers everywhere. Photos.

I am a cat person. Vicki's memoir of Dewey was fun and heart warming. Some animals have extremely strong spirits. Dewey may be gone but his spirit lives on in the lives he touched, even second hand via this book.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Its a beautiful thing when one small creature can bring such joy to so many lives. Dewey will be an alltime favorite for me. This book touched me in so many ways.

Dewey may be gone, but his story lives on, understand it will be made into a movie starring Meryl Streep. It is one of the most heartwarming books I have ever read. The ending is very sad, have the kleenex ready.
The book tells of all of Dewey's adventures from being dumped in the library's box return on the coldest night of the year to international star. It also tells the story of small town Iowa & the many people Dewey befriended.
