Lyle, Lyle Crocodile Storybook Treasury by Bernard Waber

When the Primms move into an old Victorian brownstone, they get more than they bargained for when they discover Lyle, an old performing crocodile, in the bathtub. Despite some misgivings, Lyle soon wins them over and becomes part of the family.

  

 The Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile Storybook Treasury includes four out of the nine Lyle books that Bernard Waber wrote (including the first two books in the series, The House on East 88th Street and Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile) and is a wonderful collection that is perfect for kids who are ready to listen to/read books that are lengthier and more complex than picture books or the Frog and Toad books.

   
Lyle himself is a great character, and I love how ‘human’ he is. Coupled with Bernard Waber’s classic illustrations, these lively, heartwarming stories are a timeless treasure indeed.

p.s. The last story in this collection is more of a counting book and was illustrated by Bernard Waber’s daughter.
