My 4 year old son really loved the story - how Dewey was found and how he interacted with people. He got a kick out of knowing this is a true story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dewey makes the Dewey Decimal System fun! Sept. 13 2009
By Deborah Verlen - Published on
As an adult, you may have read the grown up version of Dewey Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. This child's version is even more charming! Dewey kind of brings out the child in one and here is a book to share with your children of the intrepid cat who becomes the Spencer Library cat.

The author, Vicki Myron, finds Dewey in the library drop box and after nursing him back to health decides he will become a library cat. My grandchildren liked the story of Dewey and liked sharing his thoughts as he rambles through the library, hits story time and generally charms the hearts of all he encounters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable - great artwork Sept. 1 2009
By N. Walker - Published on
This is an adorable book about a kitten who is found in a library's book return and is adopted by the librarian as the "Library Cat" and is named "Dewey Readmore Books". The story is very heartwarming and funny. My 5-year-old twins (as well as myself) laughed out loud several times. The artwork is also very impressive--it looks very lifelike. A great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Adorable Cat Sept. 26 2009
By Char Setters - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Because I enjoyed the first book about Dewey, I wanted to see how much of the story would be included in the children's book. As it turned out, it was just right. This is one of the cutest cats I have ever seen and the illustrations are wonderful. I have six cats that I adore and I would gladly add a cat like Dewey any day. He is truly a cat who made a difference and touched the lives of many - both young and old. He could also be named Dewey - a Cat of Peace. I am taking this book as a gift to our local library where I volunteer and I cannot wait to see the children's faces when they check in the book.

I highly recommend this book and thank you, Amazon, for letting me know that it was coming on the market.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful illustrations, fair writing Oct. 7 2009
By Keri A. - Published on
This is a beautifully illustrated story of a cat who ends up in a book drop and becomes the library's cat - based on a true story. The pictures are so well done that you will find yourself wanting to reach into them and snuggle the kitten for yourself. The story itself however is kind of choppy and doesn't really flow very well. Dewey gets petted the wrong way, he peers at a baby, he gets chased around story time and held upside down, and he cheers up a sad little girl. If you child loves cats, then this book is probably worth getting based on the illustrations alone, but if you are looking for a great story to read and re-read this is not your book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable story Sept. 22 2009
By Charity A. - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you've heard the true story about Dewey the library cat or even if you haven't, this is an excellent version to share with a child in your life.

Dewey is a kitten who is abandoned in a drop box at a library and becomes an integral part of the Library. At first, he has a hard time settling in with all the noise and strange behaviors of the patrons. Eventually, though (and with a good bit of humor while communicating with a toy mouse) he decides that it is his job to help the patrons of the library, and help he does! From working, to entertaining to reaching out to a poor, sad little girl and making her laugh, Dewey shows he is the heart of that tiny little Iowa library.

I loved this book. The story was well-written and humorous. At several points, both my daughter (4-year-old) and I laughed and giggled at Dewey's exploits. I enjoyed it so much, I am purchasing a second copy to give as a gift. The illustrations are bright and well-drawn and Dewey is a lovable character.
