Dewey Snags $2 Million Deal

In September 2008, Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, co-authored by Vicki Myron and Bret Witter, moved up the bestseller lists faster than a cheetah chasing its prey. Betting on the public’s continuing love for books about the “amazing relationships between cats and their people,” Dutton just bought a Dewey sequel by Myron for a rumored $2 million. Publishers Weekly reports the new book will be titled Dewey's Nine Lives, will publish in fall 2010, and “will also feature new stories about Dewey himself.”

And like lemmings, the public will buy it. But $2 million worth? That I'm not so sure about.
