    Symbol of Spencer

    This book is for everybody. Whether you are a child or an adult, whether you like cats or not, even whether you like reading or not! It is a really heartwarming story that reads very easy and that will fill your heart with great affection. It is a story of an extraordinary cat, a librarian, and their lives in a small Iowa town. It's a story that brought the little town of Spencer onto the world map. The Japanese television filmed Dewey, and after he died, his obituary ran in over 200 papers. But most of all, this isn't just another cat story; it's a story of survival, endurance, trust, and hope. Finally, it is a story about love and living a good life. You will understand all that after you read the final few chapters. <BR/><BR/>I highly recommend this book! You will fall in love with Dewey after reading the first few pages. I promise you that! For more heartwarming stories about another ginger cat I suggest the series of "Why Some Cats are Rascals". Read them all - you will want to share the stories with your loved ones.

    Dewey is Delightful

    This book is a treasure! As an animal lover, I really got a lot out of the touching story. Also, the information about what it's like in a small town library was very enlightening. You'll laugh, you'll probably cry, but you'll go away with a greater appreciation for our furry friends.

    Sweet, sensitive, realistic and honest account of Deweys life...including the positive and negative aspects. These are real life, too.

    I read the book in a day, not being able to put it down. Even though I knew what the outcome would be, I allowed myself to cherish the story, day by day; year by year. I so appreciate the honest, realistic and, sometimes, commonplace depictions of Deweys life; representing the wonderful, warm moments he shared throughout his life in the Spencer library; as well as the descriptions of his physical ailments. These are what happens to a kitty body; just as our own human bodies. My only hope is that some of the financial gain earned from this book and a possible movie, as well as other outcroppings of Dewey's life, is used to create a no kill shelter for all the abandoned kittens and animals in need who are not as furtunate as Dewey was. The three kittens since which were placed in the Spencer library drop box, as well as the hundreds purportedly offered to the Spencer library need homes, care and love just as Dewey did. I hope Vicki Myron sees to this and expands Dewey's influence to others of his species who are in need.

    Delightful!

    This is an easy and delightful read for anyone who has ever loved an animal. Ostensibly about a cat, the book is really about the people of Spencer, Iowa and their head librarian who is the author and Dewey's owner. The story imparts peace even though it details difficult events --failed marriages, illness, family estrangements, suicide, economic turmoil. Its message, whether or not intended, was to me that we all face life and its challenges but there are moments with meaning, peace and love that reflect the overwhelming simplicity of it all, if only we stop to catch our breath and pet the cat. Straightforward and not at all saccharine, this is a wonderfully refreshing read.

    Dewey this needs a recommended rating

    This book was very touching. It made you feel like you knew the Dewey the cat and Vicki and the people at the Spencer Library. I love cats. I have 2 of them and I know the love that cats can bring to people. It was sad at the end when Dewey died. I even shed a few tears. I have mentioned this book to some family and friends and some of them have read the book or plan to read it.

    Laugh, Cry and Enjoy

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I personally have a cat that is very similar in personalty as Dewey. Reading the book reminded of when my cat was young and did all similar things and it made me remember and laugh. I laughed and cried while reading this book. My whole book club enjoyed reading the book.

    I will recommend this book to cat lovers and librarians but I will not do so with a great deal of enthusiasm.

    As an avid reader with a deep love of cats this book seemed like a good fit for me. Dewey's story was wonderful and I realize that his story alone would not make a book. As is so often the case, with books about a real pets, the writer must reach out into other areas to make the book long enough to publish. As a passionate reader I didn't mind the information on how a library works and how it must adapt to the community it serves. However, I got really tired of reading about Spencer, Iowa. I am sure it is a lovely town but I found the constant bragging about its being the best place on Earth got very old very quickly.

    I will recommend this book to cat lovers and librarians but I will not do so with a great deal of enthusiasm.

    Dewey

    I thought about Dewey long after finishing the book. He was so special and when he had to go over the rainbow at 19, I felt as sad as if he had been my own cat. Vicki wrote a wonderful story of a very special cat. It was refreshing to read a delightful true story about a terrific cat instead of a dog for a change. I know I will read it again and again. I can't wait for the movie!

    For Nostalgia loving readers

    It was a wonderful book. I appreciated the different topics not being long drawn out as I have found a lot of books where we know the inevitable is going to happen, ie, the animal dies.

    I would like to have had better things to say...

    I'm only reading this book because I used to live in Spencer and knew Dewey. I just came to the part where Ms. Myron describes Spencer as progressive (p. 61), and don't know if I can bear to read any further. Spencer is one of the most cliquish, small-minded, NON-progressive towns in which I have ever lived. I'd like to read more about the cat himself...too bad for Dewey that his story is a means to glorify an at-best average midwest town.

    Great book.

    Anyone who loves animals, especially cats will love this book. I never met Dewey, and now I wish I had, but the book makes you feel as if you went right along this journey with Vicki, Dewey and the rest of the Spencer Library. You will laugh and cry. This book should become a movie!! Great Read!!

    Not just a book about a cat

    Clearly, Dewey is no ordinary cat. But the author, who discusses very personal experiences and hardships of her life is no ordinary woman. This book was so touching, so wonderful, I am buying for everyone in my family for Christmas!

    HAPPY, HEARTWARMING, AND HOPEFUL

    Remember Marley: A Dog Like No Other, a canine greatly loved by his master? Well, here comes Dewey, an abandoned orange kitten not only beloved by his mistress but by the entire town of Spencer, Iowa. Dewey's origins were questionable as was his introduction to library director Vicki Myron. January 18, 1988 was a frigid Monday in Spencer. 'It was a killing freeze, the kind that made it almost painful to breathe.' When Vicki arrived at the library that morning her assistant told her she had heard a noise coming from a metal slot, the library's after-hours drop box behind the building. Soon, they both heard the noise and thought it was an animal. The opening of the box was only a few inches wide, so whatever it was had to be very small. Being metal the box was even colder than it was outside, and there in a corner of the box was a tiny kitten. It was the most pitiful thing she had ever seen, so thin she could see every rib, and she could feel its heart beating, its lungs pumping. 'The poor kitten was so weak it could barely hold up its head, and it was shaking uncontrollably. It opened its mouth, but the sound which came two seconds later, was weak and ragged.' But one look into his big eyes and she was Dewey's and he was hers. Dewey was not the only one who had endured hardship - Vicki was a single mom who had lost the family farm and survived an abusive husband. The people of Spencer were going through tough times during the farm crisis of that time. Depression, ennui seemed to be everywhere. Nonetheless, Vicki was determined to capture the interest of those who came to the small library and hopefully make them a little happier. With the help of Dewey she did that and more. For 19 years he returned the affection of the townspeople twofold, amusing them, enchanting them, rubbing against many hands in gratitude for their caresses. What difference can one small animal make? Dewey's story spread across state lines and even around the world. In 2003 Japanese Public Television filmed Dewey, and his obituary ran in well over 200 newspapers. His story will warm your hearts, make you laugh and cry. Don't miss it. Highly recommended. - Gail Cooke

    And I don't even like cats!

    Dewey is a heartwarming favorite, perfect for christmas gift giving. I wish all cats were like this one. I thought the idea was fantastic and carried out by Vicki and Bret to perfection. It was a touching story that had me laughing, crying, and everything in between. Don't think twice if you run across this book. Pick it up.

    WHAT A CAT THAT DEWEY

    As a cat owner and library employee, I just loved the book. I couldn't wait to read it. I pictured Dewey in my own library as I read. I laughed out loud in several places. The book is funny, touching, and inspiring. The book illustrates the importance of libraries in our communities, and in our lives-all through the telling of Dewey's story. The book also shows that one person, and in this case, one cat, can make a difference. "Dewey" is a must read for cat lovers, cat owners, library employees, and anyone who is having a hard time in life and needs some inspiration. I wish my library had a cat!
