Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron

On a very cold day, the workers at a library in Spencer, Iowa found a surprising item left in their after-hours book return slot, a beautiful ginger cat. The poor thing was cold, hungry and very scared. The author of this book, Vicki Myron, had been the library director and chose to take the cat in and care for him. It wasn't long before this kitty became the center of the library and touched everyone's lives. They named him Dewey Readmore Books.

Ms. Myron particularly grew attached to Dewey. As a single parent and suffering from her own illnesses, Dewey brought something special to her life. Dewey wasn't only part of the library's family, but part of Ms. Myron's as well.

She tells us of the people who traveled miles to see this beautiful cat and the lives he touched along the way. Ms. Myron gives us heartwarming stories, as well as a few inspirational ones as well. If you are a cat lover, even if you're not, this story will touch your hearts. It touched mine.

For reading challenge...
