Product Description

It's hard to imagine how lovable Lyle - the helpful, happy crocodile - could cause a neighborhood feud. But that is just what happened. Lyle was making Loretta, Mr. Grumps' cat, miserable. The more the well-meaning Lyle tried to win the frightened Loretta's friendship by flashing his toothsome smile, the more unhappy Loretta became. And when Loretta was unhappy Mr. Grumps was furious. How this tense neighborhood situation is resolved makes a rollicking, frolicking picture story, taking the reader on a Cook's tour of Manhattan. From the Rockefeller skating rink to a department store pajama sale; from sidewalk superintendency to Central Park zoo occupancy, it all happens to Lyle. And as readers learned in The House on East 88th Street, when the winsome Lyle and the versatile Bernard Waber get together, a real treat is in store.
