“When a cold, wet kitten is pulled from a library book-return box on a winter day in Spencer, Iowa, no one could imagine what changes this very extraordinary cat would bring to a town and a library director -- both in need of some good news. More than a memoir, this book is a lesson in love, devotion, and a sense of community spirit.”

Description


Cual es el impacto que puede llegar a tener un animal? Cuantas vidas puede llegar a tocar? Como es posible que un gatito abandonado sea capaz de transformar una pequena biblioteca y logre salvar al clasico pueblo norteamericano para finalmente volverse famoso en el mundo entero? Preguntas cuya respuesta tan solo podras imaginar hasta que no escuches la encantadora historia de Dewey Lee Mas Libros, el amado gato de biblioteca de Spencer, Iowa. La historia de Dewey comienza de la peor forma posible. Era la noche mas fria del ano cuando alguien decide meterlo por la ranura de devolucion de libros de la Biblioteca Publica de Spencer; Dewey era casi un recien nacido. Vicki Myron, la directora de la biblioteca, una madre soltera que habia sobrevivido a la perdida de la granja familiar, a una amenaza de cancer de seno y a un esposo alcoholico, lo encuentra al dia siguiente. Dewey se levanto y, tambaleandose sobre sus patitas heladas, se acerco a Vicki y a cada uno de los trabajadores de la biblioteca, tocandolos con su cabecita en senal de agradecimiento y amor; y fue de esta forma que gano el corazon de todos. Fueron su entusiasmo, calidez y humildad (como puede entenderse en un gato), pero sobre todo, un sexto sentido que le guiaba hacia quien mas lo necesitaba, los que hicieron que durante diecinueve anos nunca dejara de conquistar a los habitantes de Spencer. Conforme su fama crecia de pueblo en pueblo, de estado en estado, hasta finalmente, increiblemente, alcanzar el mundo entero, Dewey se convirtio en algo mas que un amigo: se convirtio en la fuente de orgullo de un extraordinario pueblo en el centro rural de los Estados Unidos que salia lentamente de la crisis mas grande en su larga historia. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa. Dewey's story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. He was found the next morning by library director, Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. Dewey won her heart, and the hearts of the staff, by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love. For the next nineteen years, he never stopped charming the people of Spencer with his enthusiasm, warmth, humility, (for a cat) and, above all, his sixth sense about who needed him most. As his fame grew from town to town, then state to state, and finally, amazingly, worldwide, Dewey became more than just a friend; he became a source of pride for an extraordinary Heartland farming town pulling its way slowly back from the greatest crisis in its long history.
