Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched The World...Giveaway

There is a touching book out that I am really excited to tell you about, Dewey:  The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched The World by Vicki Myron with Brett Witter.  This book combines two things most people love...books and animals.  Read on....

How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa.

Dewey's story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. He was found the next morning by library director Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. Dewey won her heart, and the hearts of the staff, by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love. For the next nineteen years, he never stopped charming the people of Spencer with his enthusiasm, warmth, humility (for a cat), and, above all, his sixth sense about who needed him most.

As his fame grew from town to town, then state to state, and finally, amazingly, worldwide, Dewey became more than just a friend; he became a source of pride for an extraordinary Heartland farming town pulling its way slowly back from the greatest crisis in its long history.


How cute is this cat's name...Dewey Readmore Books??  Adorable!  I can't wait to read this heartwarming true story!  I think we could all use an uplifting story wouldn't you agree?   This is going on my reading list and on my gift list for animal and book lovers alike!  You can purchase your own copy on Amazon..

I would want to win this for myself--I've never heard of Dewey, but he sounds like a real gem! I would also consider it for a book club suggestion, if I thought my group would like it.

Thanks for the chance to win!
