When you sit down with Lily and the Octopus, you will be taken on an unforgettable ride.

The magic of this novel is in the read, and we don't want to spoil it by giving away too many details.

We can tell you that this is a story about that special someone: the one you trust, the one you can't live without.

For Ted Flask, that someone special is his aging companion Lily, who happens to be a dog.

Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all.

Remember the last book you told someone they had to read?

Lily and the Octopus is the next one.

My Takeaway

“Dogs are always good and full of selfless love. They are undiluted vessels of joy who never, ever deserve anything bad that happens to them.”
Steven Rowley, Lily and the Octopus

OMG! THIS! BOOK! WAS! AMAZING! First of all, I have never read a book like Lily and the Octopus. I absolutely loved the story and yes, I want the entire world to read it! (I’m not kidding). The book was funny, quirky and heartfelt. It made me laugh out loud, and cry out loud (the boohooing ugly kind of sobbing). The story is about Ted, his dachshund, Lily, and their unconditional love for one another. Lily and Ted touched my heart and their story will stay with me forever. I have recommended this book to several people and so far everyone has enjoyed it. I especially recommend it to dog lovers. Rowley is an unconventional and original writer, and I look forward to more wonderful work from him. Now go get yourself a copy —  and keep the tissues nearby, you’re gonna need them!
