Horn Book Review

Adapted from the adult book, this version for middle-grade readers describes how an abandoned kitten changes the librarian-author, her library, and the small town that adopts him. With a friendly voice, Myron brings readers along as she tells of finding and caring for the increasingly famous Dewey. Young animal lovers will be the best audience for this heartwarming story.
