The cat that captured America's hearts returns, to share more of his special brand of magic.

Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World was a blockbuster bestseller and a publishing phenomenon. It has sold nearly a million copies, spawned three children's books, and will be the basis for an upcoming movie. No doubt about it, Dewey has created a community. Dewey touched readers everywhere, who realized that no matter how difficult their lives might seem, or how ordinary their talents, they can-and should- make a positive difference to those around them. Now, Dewey is back, with even more heartwarming moments and life lessons to share.

Dewey's Nine Lives offers nine funny, inspiring, and heartwarming stories about cats--all told from the perspective of "Dewey's Mom," librarian Vicki Myron. The amazing felines in this book include Dewey, of course, whose further never-before-told adventures are shared, and several others who Vicki found out about when their owners reached out to her. Vicki learned, through extensive interviews and story sharing, what made these cats special, and how they fit into Dewey's community of perseverance and love. From a divorced mother in Alaska who saved a drowning kitten on Christmas Eve to a troubled Vietnam veteran whose heart was opened by his long relationship with a rescued cat, these Dewey-style stories will inspire readers to laugh, cry, care, and, most importantly, believe in the magic of animals to touch individual lives.

Review:

"Dewey Readmore Books, the cat discovered in the book return slot at the Spencer, Iowa, public library that rose to fame in the bestseller Dewey, returns with his latest adventures. A preternaturally charming and lovable cat with a knack for knowing which people need comfort, Dewey touched the hearts of countless readers, many of whom wrote to Myron about their own pets. This book includes the stories of Myron's correspondents and their pets' antics and remarkable feats: we meet a 'church cat;' a Florida resort populated by 28 feline guests; the 'pantherlike' Spooky who survives an encounter with an owl; and Barbara Lajiness, who battles cancer with the emotional support of her companion, Mr. Kittens. We meet Glenn Albertson, who, after a long string of romantic bad luck, befriends--and later falls in love with--the author, their bond a shared love for cats. Captivating and uplifting, these personal stories will appeal to the legions of Dewey's fans who will be glad for another chance to make his acquaintance. (Oct.)"
