"Well, wouldn't you feel left out, let down, too, if it was always somebody's else's birthday being celebrated, never your own? Lyle pouts, sulks, mopes, and finally sickens to the point where he's rushed to the hospital by ambulance. But you can't keep a good crocodile down, not long anyway, and Lyle is soon up doing good deeds for the adult patients and somersaults for the children. Doing for others is the cure for Lyle's malaise - and of course there's a special celebration." -New York Times Book Review
Mrs. Primm fears Lyle the crocodile is terribly sick, when in reality he's just "green" over Joshua's birthday party.
Bernard Waber, who has written eight delightful books about Lyle the Crocodile, a little boy named Ira, and a firefly named Torchy, is the author of more than seventeen picture books for children. Widely praised by reviewers for his ability to describe common family problems, he is best loved by children for his freeflowing humor and gentle characters.
