The story of Dewey the celebrated library cat is now available for the youngest of readers in this new, fully-illustrated picture book adventure.

When Librarian Vicki Myron finds a young kitten abandoned in the Spencer Library return box, she nurses him back to health, deciding then and there that he will be their library cat, and naming him, appropriately, Dewey Readmore Books. Dewey loves his new home, but once he discovers the littlest library visitors-who like to chase him, pull his tail, and squeeze him extra tight-Dewey begins to wonder if he's truly cut out for the demands of his new job. In the end, he is triumphant as he realizes that helping people big and small is what he is meant to do, and that by sharing his special brand of Dewey love, he can be the best library cat of all.

If you are familiar with the original book, then you need to understand that this is geared for small children and is an extremely abbreviated version. I played the audio book, "Dewey The Small-town Library Cat Who Touched the World" for my daughter when she was around 8 and she loved it. I saw this and got it for her as a follow-up. It was nice to see the illustrations and the text was geared for a young audience.

This story is told from the point of view of Dewey Readmore Books, the library cat. The text does not do the story justice and might have been better told from the point of view of a child in the library.

Cute but my daughter didn't find it interesting at all. Probably for older kids?
