    I will be the first in line to see the movie. Please, please have it come out soon. I just read the book and fell in love with him (had a cat very much like him) so it was very emotional for me. Have told all my friends and they are all interested in seeing the movie also.
    Thank you, Vicki, for writing this wonderful story and for loving Dewey.

    Subject: Amazing story!!

    I agree with everyone's comment below... I can't wait for this movie to come out and what a story this is! I'm so fascinated by this story that I'm sharing this with everyone who is a pet lover and more specifically a cat lover! I bought several Dewey books and given them as gifts to my friends... it truly is a heart warming story which explains the history of Spencer, the people, the library, Vicky and Dewey! I'm sad that I only discovered this story about 6 months ago and I would have made the trip to Iowa if Dewey would have still been alive. I'm sure the energy that Dewey gave would have rubbed off on me as it did to the rest of the world who came across this special cat!

    Wow what a beautiful story, - I hadn't read a book in over 25 years & I have now read both of Vicki's books, such a heartwarming story, both books had me in tears, what an amazing little fellow you were. You are a legend & always will be, can't wait to see your movie.

    Subject: Dewey movie deal

    I've never met Dewey before, but fell completely in love with him after reading the book, and cried when he had to be put to sleep. I hope the movie about him will be released really soon, I will deffinatly buy it when it comes out on DVD. I really can't wait to watch it! I'm sure it will be as heart warming and touching as his book was. I hope it comes out soon!

    I read the book cover to cover. Dewey youve touched many lives. even if i have never met you you have touched me deeply. i hope your legacy lives on. when i was reading i saw you were no ordinary cat and i cried when you had to be put down. i would have flown to iowa to see you if i could. Rest in peace, little fella.
