Book Review: Dewey


Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched The World

by Vicki Myron

If you'd like a nice, light read then this is a very delightful book. You don't have to be a cat lover like I am to enjoy this book! Here is an excerpt:

"Dewey wasn't special because he did something extraordinary but because he was extraordinary. He was like on of those seemingly ordinary people who, once you get to know them, stand out from the crowd. They are the ones who never missa day of work, who never complain, who never ask for more than their share. They are those rare librarians, car salesmen, and waitresses who provide excellent service on principle, who go beyond the job because they have a passion for the job. They know what they are meant to do in life, and they do it exceptionally well. Some win awards; some make a lot of money; most are taken for granted. The store clerks. The bank tellers. The auto mechanics. The mothers. The world tends to recognize the unique and the loud, the rich and the self-servings, not those who do ordinary things extraordinarily well."

I hope you will read it and enjoy it as much as I did!
