About the Author

Vicki Myron was born on a farm fifteen miles from Spencer, Iowa. At the age of thirty-four, she graduated summa cum laude from Mankato State University and she has a masters degree from Emporia State University. She worked at the Spencer Public Library for twenty-five years, the last twenty as director. She lives in Spencer, Iowa. Her website is www.deweyreadmorebooks.com

Bret Witter has collaborated with Vicki Myron since 2006 and has enjoyed every minute. Raised in North Alabama, he currently lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife and two children, Lydia and Isaac.


Gr 4-6-After a cold winter's night, a kitten appeared in the book drop of the Spencer, Iowa, library. Frostbitten, dirty, and hungry, he was immediately adopted by the staff and soon had a place of his own in the library. He also had a name-Dewey Readmore Books. This true story (Little, Brown, 2010) by Vicki Myron and Bret Witter was adapted from their book for adults, Dewey (Grand Central Pub. 2008). Dewey's story is heartwarming and amusing as the cat wins over even the most recalcitrant of patrons. Children will giggle at his antics, delight in his eccentricities, and mourn his eventual passing. Laura Hamilton narrates the chapter book with panache and warmth, her voice and presentation aptly suiting the conversational tone of the text. She creates unique voices for the characters and draws listeners into the story, making it seem as if she is sharing a personal experience. A tender and amusing listening experience.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
