Dewey: The True Story of a World-Famous Library CatDewey: The True Story of a World-Famous Library Cat by Vicki Myron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this a really charming little book and genuinely enjoyed reading it.

The story of Dewey the Library cat, kitten rescued from a freezing alley and given home in a public library, has been adapted specifically for younger readers. As such it’s a light and lovely read and the language used is very accessible and clear.

Although the obvious happens at the end (cute-cat-death alert people, be prepared), I still can imagine this being shared well between adult and child.

It’s also one of the most effective pieces of #savelibraries propaganda I’ve read. Really lovely.

And I really want a library cat for my library now.
