Vicki Myron könyvei a rukkolán


Vicki Myron - Bret Witter - Dewey ​- There's a Cat in the Library!
The ​story of Dewey the celebrated library cat is now available for the youngest of readers in this new, fully-illustrated picture book adventure. When Librarian Vicki Myron finds a young kitten abandoned in the Spencer Library return box, she nurses him back to health, deciding then and there that he will be their library cat, and naming him, appropriately, Dewey Readmore Books. Dewey loves his new home, but once he discovers the littlest library visitors-who like to chase him, pull his tail, and squeeze him extra tight-Dewey begins to wonder if he's truly cut out for the demands of his new job. In the end, he is triumphant as he realizes that helping people big and small is what he is meant to do, and that by sharing his special brand of Dewey love, he can be the best library cat of all.

Vicki Myron - Bret Witter - Dewey
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

The cat that captured America's hearts returns, to share more of his special brand of magic. _Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World_ was a blockbuster bestseller and a publishing phenomenon. It has sold nearly a million copies, spawned three children's books, and will be the basis for an upcoming movie. No doubt about it, Dewey has created a community. Dewey touched readers everywhere, who realized that no matter how difficult their lives might seem, or how ordinary their talents, they can-and should- make a positive difference to those around them. Now, Dewey is back, with even more heartwarming moments and life lessons to share. Dewey's Nine Lives offers nine funny, inspiring, and heartwarming stories about cats--all told from the perspective of "Dewey's Mom," librarian Vicki Myron. The amazing felines in this book include Dewey, of course, whose further never-before-told adventures are shared, and several others who Vicki found out about when their owners reached out to her. Vicki learned, through extensive interviews and story sharing, what made these cats special, and how they fit into Dewey's community of perseverance and love. From a divorced mother in Alaska who saved a drowning kitten on Christmas Eve to a troubled Vietnam veteran whose heart was opened by his long relationship with a rescued cat, these Dewey-style stories will inspire readers to laugh, cry, care, and, most importantly, believe in the magic of animals to touch individual lives.

Vicki Myron - Bret Witter - Dewey ​- A könyvtár macskája
___Mekkora ​hatással bírhat egy állat? Hány ember életét érintheti meg egyetlen macska? Hogyan lehetséges, hogy egy elhagyott macskakölyök megváltoztathat egy kis könyvtárat, megmenthet egy klasszikus amerikai várost, és idővel világhírre tehet szert? Ha választ keresel ezekre a kérdésekre, hallgasd meg az iowai Spencer városka szeretett könyvtári macskája, Könyvmoly Dewey elbűvölő történetét. ___Dewey története a lehető legkeservesebb módon kezdődik. Alig néhány hetesen, az esztendő legdermesztőbb éjszakáján bedugták Spencer Közkönyvtárának könyvledobójába. Másnap reggel talált rá Vicki Myron, a könyvtár igazgatója, gyermekét egyedül nevelő anya, aki túlélte családi gazdaságuk elvesztését, a fenyegető mellrákot és alkoholista férjét. Dewey azonnal elnyerte Vicki szívét, akárcsak a könyvtár valamennyi dolgozójáét, amikor összeszedte magát, fagyos lábacskáin odatotyogott hozzájuk, és köszönete, szeretete jeléül megbökdöste mindegyikük lábát. Az ezután következő tizenkilenc év során mindvégig elbűvölte Spencer lakosait lelkesedésével, melegével, macskáktól szokatlan alázatával, és mindenek fölött hatodik érzékével, amellyel tudta, hogy ki szorul rá legjobban az ő szeretetére. ___Ahogy Dewey híre városról városra, államról államra, majd elképesztő módon világgá terjedt, a cica barátnál is több lett: a büszkeség forrása egy közép-amerikai gazdálkodó városkának, amely lassan kilábalt hosszú történelmének legsúlyosabb válságából.
