Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Purrrrrrfect companion Dewey, There's a cat in the Library, is a lovely companion piece to the original Dewey, the small-town library cat who touched the World. The illustrations and text create a warmth that makes the reader connect with this wonderful kitty who with his feline powers of purrrrsuasion made daily life a little more brighter. The book is wonderful to read out loud with catchy phrases like "Wowzy Whiskers" or "Hooey Doowey Yooks". I'm sure this will become a classic which cat and book lovers will treasure for years.
