Like many people, I was completely charmed when I first learned about Dewey the Cat in Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. I hadn’t realized how powerful Dewey’s experiences were until I recently learned that the book sold over 1 million copies and is presently under development as a film adaptation that stars Meryl Streep. I thought that was pretty amazing!
The success of this book has sparked a new book that is set to be released on October 12th. Entitled DEWEY’S NINE LIVES: The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat Who Inspired Millions, the press release for this book, by Vicki Myron and Bret Witter, say that the book “contains two new stories about the beloved Dewey, as well as seven other tales of amazing true-life cats of fans who were inspired to share their experiences with Vicki.”
American readers may also be interested in entering the I Believe in “Dewey’s Magic” story contest!
I will be reviewing this book in the near future and, in the meantime, I have a great giveaway for US and Canadian readers (excluding Quebec)!
