Publisher's Summary

On the coldest morning of the year, Vicki Myron found a tiny, bedraggled kitten almost frozen to death in the night drop box of the library where she worked, and her life - and the town of Spencer, Iowa - would never be the same.

Vicki was a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm and an alcoholic, abusive husband. But her biggest challenge as the new head librarian in Spencer was to raise the spirits of a small, out-of-the-way town mired deep in the farm crisis of the 1980s.

Dewey, as the townspeople named the kitten, quickly grew into a strutting, adorable library cat whose antics kept patrons in stitches, and whose sixth sense about those in need created hundreds of deep and loving friendships.

As his fame grew, people drove hundreds of miles to meet Dewey, and people all over the world fell in love with him.

Through it all, Dewey remained a loyal companion, a beacon of hope not just for Vicki, but for the entire town of Spencer as it slowly, steadily pulled itself up from the worst financial crisis in its long history. Dewey won hearts and proved to everyone he encountered that unconditional love comes in many forms.

    "A nice story"

    How a cat weaves around the hearts of so many people across the world. A lovely animal story. That is, it has a lot about people too.

    "A Heartwarming & Endearing Tale"

    The story of Dewey, the Library cat, won't just appeal to cat lovers. It's actually the story of Vicki's adult life, told through the experiences that she has with this incredible cat.

    For anyone who has ever had a pet, this story will resonate with what an incredible part of your life they become, without ever realising how important they are in your life.

    Tears, laughter and a cosy familiarity are what this audiobook will bring you.
