I'm a sucker when it comes to books about animals.  I'm a dog-lover at heart, but I'll read just about anything about just about any animal.

So when I saw a book on display at the library that featured the face of a beautiful orange cat, I knew it was for me. I didn't even read what it was about.  It didn't matter, I knew I would love it.


So maybe it's not fair then to call this a book "review."  After all, I'm a sucker for a good tear-jerking story about a beloved pet, and "Dewey" did not disappoint.  Dewey was a cat in Iowa who was shoved down a return book drop at at library, and was rescued by the librarians there.  He lived there for 19 full years.  The entire community loved him, and he actually became rather famous - apparently people would drive long distances just to meet him.  He had more character as a cat than even most dogs, and that's coming from a true dog lover.

I won't say anything more about the book, since I think you should just read it for yourself.  Especially if you're an animal lover, and even if you're not.
