Dewey's Christmas at the Library

Vicki Myron and Bret Witter, illus. by Steve James, Little, Brown, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-316-06872-7
Curiosity certainly doesn't kill Dewey the cat—it helps his library win first prize in a tree-decorating contest. So goes this schmaltzy holiday anecdote starring the feline mascot of an Iowa library, first made famous in retired librarian Myron's bestselling Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. Dewey's antics exploring paper bags, tree decorations, and bright red yarn entertain staff and patrons alike, as seen in James's quaint, slightly retro illustrations (is that a card catalogue in the children's room?!). Ages 3–6. (Oct.)
