I loved this story! Like the first Dewey book, but not much about Dewey. But the other stories were amazing and heartwarming. I found it very interesting but I cried during quite a few of them. Diffidently for cat lovers and highly recommended.

All the stories were really good and sweet but all made me cry. I had to quit reading it

Not as good as the original, in my opinion. I didn't get past the first few chapters/stories.

Kind of a "Chicken Soup..." book. An easy read but it gets a little too heartwarming for me.

This is a great follow up to the first Dewey book. It was nice to read of other cats like Dewey that were lovingly devoted to their human counterparts. There is not that much more on Dewey here however I did not mind that at all. He already had an entire book devoted to him and the author of both this book and the first made another great read to experience. As I said in a comment made about the Original Dewey book its meant for cat lovers I believe although its probably a fine read for others alike.

A collection of short stories about people whose lives were impacted by Dewey. Personally, I think I would have liked a few more actually about Dewey, even if it made for a longer book, but it was a cute read.
