Product Description:
"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."


What we thought: If you are a cat lover, you will love this book! If you have a cat lover on your gift list this year, they will love this book:) Myron does an excellent job of picking the best stories to share with her readers in Dewey's Nine Lives. Each cat and owner have different but captivating stories and this book beautifully ties them all together with a single theme...people and the cats that love them unconditionally:) This really would make the perfect gift book this holiday season. ABCD Diaries gives Dewey's Nine Lives an A+!

  28. I would share it with my grandbabies-Rachel alomost 4, and Raineer alittle over 1. They have a cat called Eva and Eva sleeps in Rachel's bed. The other day Rachel's Mom caught Rachel rubbing the end of Eva's tail all over her face. Raineer keeps trying to grab her tail and puts his face into Eva. Eva is a Siamese and sometimes bites them, but they love her and just won't leave her alone. They would love this book and I would love to read it to them!

  38. I'd share this adorable book with my two granddaughters. They live out of state, but when I visit them, one of our favorite things to do is to all pile into one big bed while I read to them. I am a huge cat lover, as are they, and they would love this book!
