Every home should have a crocodile! This hardcover storybook featuring four complete beloved Lyle books makes a great gift.
Splish, splash. Over fifty years ago, the Primms moved into the house on East 88th Street and found a crocodile soaking in the bathtub. Since then, Lyle has won the hearts of all he meets.
This collection features an introduction by Bernard Waber, Lyle’s creator and four complete books:
The House on East 88th Street
Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile
Lyle and the Birthday Party
Lyle Walks the Dogs
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. A Literary Landmark plaque commemorating the adventures of this endearing New York City reptile can now be found on East 88th Street and Bernard Waber's artwork is the subject of a traveling retrospective exhibit, curated by the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. bernardwaber.com.
