"Here's another heartwarming collection of stories about the power of the human connection to animals, in this case, cats. The popularity of Myron's first book about the famous Spencer, Iowa, library cat Dewey brought her stories from her many fans about their own cats. She recounts those here, along with a new selection of stories about Dewey that didn't make it into the original. Andrea Gallo's narration rings with genuine feeling, and she handily keeps the many characters straight. Some of the stories can be sappy--especially the tearjerkers--but Gallo downplays the schmaltz with an upbeat, humorous delivery. This is a perfect gift for fans of the first book. D.G.
