Jennifer Aniston will make her literary debut later this year with a children’s picture book inspired by a special dog.

HarperCollins will publish Clydeo Takes a Bite Out of Life, written by Aniston and illustrated by Bruno Jacob, in the fall, the press announced in a news release. It describes the book as a “relatable and heartwarming story.”

Aniston is best known for her role as Rachel Green on the massively popular sitcom Friends, which earned her an Emmy Award in 2002. She went on to star in the series The Morning Show and in films including Marley & Me, The Switch, and Horrible Bosses.

In 2021, she introduced the character Clydeo, an animated dog based on her own canine companion, Clyde. Clydeo, which was developed by the the animation studio Invisible Universe, currently boasts more than 48,000 followers on Instagram.

In the book, HarperCollins says, Clydeo tries to find a hobby that will hold his interest. “Clydeo doesn’t love to surf like his uncle,” the publisher says. “He isn’t into painting blindfolded like his cousin. And digging for dinosaur bones like his aunt is definitely not his thing. Clydeo tries everything he can think of, but nothing seems to make his world sparkle. Will Clydeo ever find what he loves to do most?”

Aniston said in a statement, “I could not be more thrilled to be taking Clydeo and his stories to publishing, where he will hopefully inspire children and dog lovers alike with his adorable journey to find his true passion.”

Clydeo Takes a Bite Out of Life is slated for publication on Oct. 1.
