Sweet Lyle, generous crocodile and friend to all, meets his first enemy in this tale of conflict and connection. I read this and wished I could enjoy a sugar cookie (with sprinkles on top) alongside him.— Peter
Lyle is distraught to learn he has an enemy and tries to be an even more lovable crocodile than he was before.
Bernard Waber was the beloved author-illustrator of more than thirty picture books, including Courage, Ira Sleeps Over, and Do You See a Mouse? With the publication of The House on East 88th Street in 1962, his Lyle, Lyle Crocodile series of books became a mainstay of children's literature and was adapted for both stage and screen. A Literary Landmark plaque commemorating the adventures of this endearing New York City reptile can now be found on East 88th Street. bernardwaber.com.
"Patterned in the same format as its successful predecessors, this book has color illustrations that are as delightfully revealing of Lyle & Co. as ever." School Library Journal —
