  • "Library director Vicki discovered Dewey, abandoned, starving and bruised, in the book returns slot of the local town library. Vicki, a single mother, fell in love with Dewey and campaigned to allow him to become the library cat. Dewey's instinct to cuddle up to visitors who were going through a tough time, caused one severely disabled girl, who previously never laughed, to break out in giggles. His arrival transformed the relationship between Vicki and her daughter, and the lives of the library staff and patrons. And as Dewey's fame spread, his influence transformed a community and touched the world."
