In Dewey's Nine Lives, best-selling librarian-turned-author Vicki Myron has written another winning book based on the cat she rescued from her library's book drop one freezing night. Dewey's Nine Lives is a compilation of nine inspiring stories about cats who have helped their owners take special joy from their seemingly ordinary lives. These true tales-including two new ones about Dewey-are brimming with examples of how people experience vital connections to the animals in their lives.

"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.
