Book Review: Dewey’s Nine Lives

Don’t we all think our pet is the cutest, smartest, best pet in the world? I know for a fact that my dogs are! But, if you’re like me, even though you know that about your pets, you love hearing stories about other pets and the people who love them. For that reason, I thoroughly enjoyed Dewey’s Nine Lives: The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat Who Inspired Millions.

Dewey was a small, frightened kitten who someone had dumped in the book return box at the library in Spencer, Ohio. Luckily for him, and the whole town, the librarian who found him was a cat lover and nursed him back to health. The little kitty became a permanent resident of the library and grew into everybody’s best friend. Throughout his lifetime he touched the lives of people far from Spencer, and inspired them to share the stories of the special cats in their lives.

The stories in Dewey’s Nine Lives are from people who heard about Dewey, and then wrote to the author to tell about their cats. They’re wonderful, touching stories about cats – and each one is the best cat in the world! Every story in the book illustrates the type of bond between a human and an animal that only a true pet person can understand. And it’s because of that bond that these cats were able to bring something special to their people. So, even though you may have the best cat or dog in the world, there’s no doubt you’ll be able to relate to the stories in Dewey’s Nine Lives.

You’ll also find Dewey the cat on the Facebook Page, Dewey’s Magic.
