The Story of Lilly & Lou

The Story of Lilly & Lou invites children (9-15 years old) to take an exciting journey with Alicia, the main character, on what begins as a routine walk with her dog Bella in New York City. Little does she know that what she discovers in the park will forever change her life, the life of two dogs and many others.

The Story of Lilly & Lou is gripping and touching and teaches us all the power of compassion, courage and purpose.


The Story of Lilly and Lou is captivating, heartwarming, and instructive. Doriane Lucia has written a story that children (and adults) will adore. At the same time, we all learn to care a bit more because of Lilly and Lou.”

- Zoe Weil, President of the Institute for Humane Education and author of Above All, Be Kind, Most Good, Least Harm and two children’s books, Claude and Medea: The Hellburn Dogs and So, You Love Animals

“What a beautiful story! Doriane Lucia understands the importance of Humane Education and the individual power that each of us possess for change. I believe that The Story of Lilly & Lou shines a light for all of us along this path of compassion and courage.”

- Julie Lewin, author of Get Political for Animals and Get the Laws They Need and President of the National Institute for Animal Advocacy (

“Doriane Lucia has recognized an element in education that truly needs to be strengthened and extended. Every child possesses the ability to learn compassion and responsibility for others. The Story of Lilly & Lou is one that provides an example of extraordinary courage and passion and instills the belief in children that they, too, can make a difference in the world: one person, one animal, one community at a time.”

- Nicole Waicunas, M.Ed., English Teacher, E.O. Smith High School, Storrs, Connecticut
