Abandoned in a library book-drop slot in the dead of winter, the small kitten who came to be known as Dewey Readmore Books miraculously endured the coldest night of the year. When librarian Vicki Myron found him in the morning, she wrapped him in her arms, gave him his first bath, and then introduced him to his new home: the library.
Dewey charmed Spencer, Iowa’s library-goers, young and old, with his ability to know just which visitors needed a friend. And as word of his heartwarming tail - or rather, tale - spread, Dewey gained worldwide fame as proof positive that one small cat could change a struggling town, one person at a time.
In this adaptation of the number-one New York Times best seller Dewey, everyone’s favorite library cat inspires a new audience of listeners with his story of courage, survival, and above all, love.

Looking for characters to fall in love with and stories that will blow my mind!
I haven't read the print version.
Yes, I would not humanize Dewey, I mean, the parts where the author pretends Dewey is talking as if he were saying something to her. I'd use more what I thought he was supposedly thinking.
The one where he(Dewey) finally climbs on Cristal's wheelchair and for the first time in years, this handicapped girl is able to express something, she "squeals", as the author describes, in joy and she gets this expression on her face, it's like she finally was able to express something that has been inside her forever. It is amazing what that cat did for the people.
The one I mentioned above.
LOVE HIM & the story! But I think every cat person would be drawn to this story anyhow...but you don't have to be a cat lover to enjoy it!
How he brought the town together
I never have time for that - but I did want to hurry up and finish it!
I hope this book brought Vicki some income as well as the town since it sounded like they could use it!
I could SO relate to many of the Dewey stories as I rescue a lot of kitties and they ALL have such amazing personalities! I was so happy to hear someone write about them!
