How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library  save a classic American town  and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books  the beloved library cat of Spencer  Iowa. Dewey's story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old  on the coldest night of the year  he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. He was found the next morning by library director Vicki Myron  a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm  a breast cancer scare  and an alcoholic husband. Dewey won her heart  and the hearts of the staff  by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love. For the next nineteen years  he never stopped charming the people of Spencer with his enthusiasm  warmth  humility (for a cat)  and  above all  his sixth sense about who needed him most. As his fame grew from town to town  then state to state  and finally  amazingly  worldwide  Dewey became more than just a friend; he became a source of pride for an extraordinary Heartland farming town pulling its way slowly back from the greatest crisis in its long history.
