Abandoned in a library book drop slot in the dead of winter, a remarkable kitten miraculously endured the coldest night of the year. Dewey Readmore Books, as he became known, quickly embraced his home inside Spencer's public library, charming the struggling small town's library-goers. As word of Dewey's winning tail, or rather his tale, spread, the library cat gained worldwide fame as a symbol of hope and proof positive that one small cat could change a town, one reader at a time.

The kitten was abandoned in the library’s book return box. Named Dewey Readmore Books, he became one of the most important members of the library staff in Spencer, Iowa.

My 9 year old & I completely enjoyed this captivating story. The narrators voice portrayed the story and emotions very well. Great for adults & kids who are looking for a nice story to listen to on the drive into work or to swimming lessons. There is a sad ending, but it does not drag on too long; I cried, small children may have a hard time with it.
