The story of Dewey the celebrated library cat is now available for the youngest of readers in this new, fully-illustrated picture book adventure. 
When Librarian Vicki Myron finds a young kitten abandoned in the Spencer Library return box, she nurses him back to health, deciding then and there that he will be their library cat, and naming him, appropriately, Dewey Readmore Books. Dewey loves his new home, but once he discovers the littlest library visitors-who like to chase him, pull his tail, and squeeze him extra tight-Dewey begins to wonder if he's truly cut out for the demands of his new job. In the end, he is triumphant as he realizes that helping people big and small is what he is meant to do, and that by sharing his special brand of Dewey love, he can be the best library cat of all.

Overall, I found this to be a cute story. I like that it is based off of real life.  Dewey: There's a Cat in the Library is a story about a cat that someone has dropped off at the library on a really cold night. The librarian finds the cat the next morning and takes care of him. She instantly falls in love with the cat and decides that it will be a library cat. 
Dewey starts off doing what normal kittens do but in a library. He interacts with the people and likes it when they pet him, but only when they do it the correct way. After walking in on Story Time filled with children who all went crazy over there being a cat in the library, Dewey decides it is time for him to do his duty as a library cat. Helping patrons that come to the library and helping shelve books. He even helps cheer up a sad child. 
This story is cute. It kept my girls very entertained. They loved reading it. I really liked the different aspects of the library that the book included. I also really loved his full name. I would recommend checking this story out, especially if you have a child or children that love cats!
