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. You can learn more about him at www.bernardwaber.com.
Paulis Waber is the daughter of Bernard Waber. The first Lyle the Crocodile book, The House on East 88th Street, was dedicated to her. Paulis Waber lives with her husband and three children in Washington, DC.
"Bernard Waber's beloved crocodile lands a dog-walking job in this peppy story--more than just a counting book--aimed at a younger audience than its predecessors. Debut illustrator Paulis Waber's watercolor, ink, and pencil drawings flawlessly replicate the airiness and humor of her father's iconic art...The tale concludes with kudos to the protagonist ("Good job, Lyle!"), praise that should extend to the collaborators as well."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
