The writing is sure, evocative without being overbearing. - “A heart is judged not by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.” Lily loves ice cream, chicken and rice, tofurky, her red ball, and her dad, Ted. On Thursdays Lily and Ted discuss which boys they think are the cutest, and when they play Monopoly she likes being the cannon.
Lily and Ted are more than best friends, more than dachshund and man, and together they undergo the adventure of a lifetime hunting an octopus on the open sea.
This is a charming and quirky story that gives us permission to love our animals in the consuming, over-the-top, bizarre ways that we do.
