Dewey, by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter, is an adorable nonfiction book about a small-town public library in Spencer, Iowa. This book is written for adults, but is appropriate for any age reader.

The story begins with a kitten being abandoned in a public library drop box. The staff and town adopt the kitten as their library cat. They name him Dewey Readmore Books.

Dewey is a perfect library cat. He loves people and has instincts that guide him to the library patrons that need him the most. The town and its people suffer many loses and tragedies, but Dewey remains a bright spot in their lives throughout it all.

I recommend this book to cat-lovers of any age!
