Reading/Review - The Library Cat of all Library Cats

I've just read Dewey by Vicki Myron (with Bret Witter).  I loved it.  It's so nice to read a true story of something/someone about which so many people know, but is new to me.

It's a non-fiction story about a small-town library cat who became quite famous.  It's also about the librarian's relationship with Dewey, and by extension, the town.  I definitely would recommend this to anyone who loves animals, particularly ginger cats (you know who you are).  Or, just enjoys a good real-life story.  Or, likes libraries.  Or, loves small towns, specifically, in Iowa, U.S.A.  I will be passing this book on to someone who fits into the above category. 

The author said she learned the following from Dewey:
"Find your place. Be happy with what you have. Treat everyone well. Live a good life. It isn't about material things; it's about love. And you can never anticipate love."

The epilogue was thought provoking, especially the above, and the story about what happened to Vicki when she was 3 years old.
