Dewey's Nine Lives: The Legacy Of The Small-town Library Cat Who Inspired Millions is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wonderful inspirational stories Dewey's Nine Lives is nine stories about or inspired by Dewey, the library cat. The stories are told from the viewpoint of Dewey's 'mom', author Vicki Myron. There is a story about how Dewey affected a lady who was a regular at the library and how his legacy lives on without him since he has died. Another story is about a soldier who returns from the Viet Cong a troubled and unhappy soul. A rescue cat helps him open himself up to relationships by being persistent and loving. An Alaskan divorced mom saves a kitten from drowning on Christmas Eve to form a life-long bond. This cat inspires her to do her best and persevere in her own life. And then there is the story of the cats of Sanibel Island and how the cats of the Colony Resort touched those who lived and visited there. I can just imagine dozens of cats sitting on the rungs of a ladder. I am not a cat lover but I am an animal lover and these stories can not help but captivate the reader. Time and time again a cat is shown to have 'picked' the person who needs him or her most. By unconditional love the cat has managed to 'save' or help when they are needed. Each of these stories is heart-warming and inspiring. I, too, believe in the magic of these cats.
