Everyone loved Lyle the Crocodile. The Primm family with whom he lived, loved him dearly, of course. (from the first line)
|Everyone loves Lyle the Crocodile. The Primm family certainly does. And the bakery lady. And Mr. Delight, the ice cream man. And Lyle loves the whole, wide wonderful world and thinks the world loves him, until one day he receives a mysterious note that says, 'I hate you. I hate you more than anything.' Why Lyle is disliked and how he convinces everyone that all crocodiles aren't bad is the dilemma in this delightful picture book about one of the most lovable animals ever created.|
From the Publisher:
Lyle is distraught to learn he has an enemy and tries to be an even more lovable crocodile than he was before.
Bernard Waber will be forever immortalized as the creator of lovable Lyle the Crocodile. Raised during the Depression, Waber and his family moved frequently during his childhood, making the public library one of the few constants in his life. After serving in World War II, he attended the Philadelphia College of Art where he received a degree in commercial art. After graduation, he moved to New York City where he worked in the promotion department of Conde Nast, the publisher of several magazines. Waber began writing and illustrating picture books after discovering how much he loved reading aloud to and sharing stories with his own children. His first book, LORENZO, was published in 1961. The wonderfully reassuring and helpful character Lyle the Crocodile first appeared in THE HOUSE ON EAST 88TH STREET in 1962.
