Looking for your next read? We’d like to recommend Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicky Myron.
The heartwarming nonfiction work tells the story of an abandoned orange tabby who changed the lives of everyone he came in contact with at the Iowa library where he lived. The author, Vicki, found Dewey almost frozen to death in the drop box at the library where she worked one night in the 1980s. She decided to adopt him as the Spencer library’s very own pet.
Dewey, who died in 2006, became so famous that there was even a documentary made about him in Japan! It’s not surprising, given how many lives he touched.
So if you’re a kitty-lover, this is one book that’s definitely worth reading.
