This is the illustrated children’s book version of Vicki Myron’s adult book, Dewey the Library Cat. Dewey is new to being a library cat, as he is trying to figure out what a library cat does, he wonders if he is the right cat for the job.

I decided to start reviewing some picture books because I keep on seeing really cute ones in the library, and this is my first one that I am reviewing on here. While most people don’t like it is based on a true story from another author, I like it. Why? Because it gives a chance for little kids to broaden their horizons even though they aren’t on the adult reading level yet.

Anyways, I like the children’s book version, but I’m not too sure if I would like the adult book. >.>” The author(s) made it really easy and fun to read for children. The illustrations make it even more enjoyable. They were so cute and soft that I looked at the pages extra long. :)

There aren’t really any special hidden lessons for children in the book, but it is still really enjoyable. Anyways, it is a good read to read to your children, and I think they will love the illustrations.

Where I Got It:

Checked out from the library.
