Dewey: A Small Town, a Library and the World's Most Beloved Cat - Vicki Myron
Advantages: Heart warming
Disadvantages: A bit overly sentimental, no happy ending
I just had to buy this book because Dewey looks just like my cat! Now they say you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but I decided not to worry about that!
The book is about a cat who was found in a library book return box and was then adopted by the library and the town in general.
Overall it is a heart-warming story which is not only about a cat but also about the lives of the people who care for him and come into contact with him.
It is a bit overly sentimental (and I'm a cat lover) but this was to be expected really and it wouldn't make much of a story if it wasn't.
If you have a cat it will make you chuckle at their little ways - Dewey does a lot of the same things that my cat does - playing with the Christmas tree every year and such like!
I felt that the book started a little slow and the over sentimentalism is very evident but it then seems to warm up as you grow to know and love Dewey.
I was a bit upset that there wasn't a happy ending! I don't see why Dewey couldn't have lived forever!
Summary: Judge this book by it's cover
