I was thrilled when I was contacted by the publisher of Dewey Readmore Books' newest book. Not that Dewey himself wrote it because sadly he passed away in November of 2006. His mom Vicki Myron co-authored it with Bret Witter. They wanted me to review it. Being the mom around here I purred at the opportunity.
Not that I could read it myself, but I knew that it meant lots of quality lap time while our mom read it to us. I especially wanted my daughter Cory to hear the stories. Both of us adored the first book. We loved it because Dewey was a cat, like us, who was abandoned, but found a great life in spite of his rough beginning.
This book included more about Dewey. It also included stories of other wonderful and amazing kittens and cats that touched the lives of readers who loved Dewey. I like to think that each of us cats is special. Each one of us touches the lives of the people who love us. We form relationships and bonds that transform each other. This book has 9 chapters, 2 of which focus on Dewey and 7 that feature cats who will be new to you. I loved each and everyone of them. They all made me purr.
Cory, what did you think?
