Dewey's Nine Lives: The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat Who Inspired Millions

Vicki Myron and Bret Witter, Dutton, $19.99 (320p) ISBN 978-0-525-95186-5
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.)
