A few weeks ago when we were shopping in Costo, we did our usual and looked through the book section. One book in particular caught our eye. It was called Dewey and is the story of a cat who lived in at Spencer Public Library in Iowa. I don’t normally read factual books, I’m more a fantasy or sci-fi fan.
Anyway, I started briefly glancing at it that evening and before I knew where I was, I was into the book. Dewey was adopted by the library staff after he was dropped in the book return one cold January night. It is a great book, with many funny antics and also a bit of an emotional roller coaster. The town was suffering during the downturn of the 1980′s and the arrival of Dewey proved to be a turning point for the library and the town. The writing is easy and very descriptive; you are just there in the story.
A book that I would most definately recommend. It took me a week, because I was busy and couldn’t get back to it, but I could easily have sat and read it all day.
