Drop everything you are doing and run, don’t walk to pick up a copy of “Lilly & The Octopus” by author Steven Rowley. You will thank me. I must say, it has been a quite awhile since I have enjoyed a book this much. Loved it!
I was not exactly sure what to expect with a title Like “Lilly and The Octopus” Maybe a cute tale about a Dachshund and her favorite toy? From the first page I knew this was not going to be your average book about a dog and her guardian. Rowley has a fresh, organic feel to his writing. Nothing feels like he is trying to hard. His humor is effortless and unexpected. What a pleasure to be caught off guard, over and over again.
I really don’t want to give anything away, although you find out early on, just who or what the Octopus actually is. Lilly & The Octopus is a tale packed withlaughs (too many to count), tears, denial, acceptance and above all love.
Some books you read are like junk food, pleasurable but gone from memory in a short time. Others are more like a sumptuous full meal… filling and nourishing. This tale of Lilly the Dachshund & her Dad is more akin to a surprise moonlight picnic with your true love on the most perfect summers night. Pure Magic!
Once you've finished this gem, give your dog a whole lotta kisses, and enjoy a good long walk. Be sure to take along The Fifth Paw. The Fifth Paw is the premiere hands-free dog-poop carrier that gives you the freedom to fall in love with walking your dogs all over again! Enjoy the book.
