" I love Lyle the Crocodile, and his house on East 88th Street. " said.

" The first in the series in which we meet Lyle the Crocodile. Bring the Turkish Caviar and celebrate a classic in children's literature/picture books. " said.

" This was such a great book. I heard of Bernard Waber through an exhibit at the National Museum of American Jewish History and I'm glad I went. Waber was a great writer and makes the characters come alive. This book also teaches great lessons in civility, love, and what family really is. " said.

" a beautiful story about a crocidile who has a finely tuned palate and a very extraordinary life. I enjoyed it as a child because of the ornate details, and how the illustrations capture New York City. " said.

"Lyle is found in the Primm`s bathtub and finds a home amongst the house on 88th street. Hector P. Valenti leaves a note telling about Lyle. Mrs.Primm teaches Lyle to break his Turkish Caviler habit and Lyle happily lives with the Primms." said.

" A family moves into the house on 88th Street only to discover a crocodile in the bathtub. After their initial alarm, they discover Lyle (the crocodile) can do tricks. He becomes part of the family and eventually famous. His real owner comes for him, but returns Lyle when he doesn't perform well for him. " said.

" I had no idea there was a book before Lyle, Lyle Crocodile! What a cute story and a sweet beginning to a favorite crocodile. Probably the cutest one I've ever seen drawn (aside from the "Want to eat a child" crocodile).Could work in a storytime if the crowd can sit still for a slightly longer book. " said.

" I just read the obituary for author Waber--but the delights of his classic live on. This was one of the major books of my just-starting-school years: the tale of the crocodile found in the bathtub (Lyle, for those poor souls who haven't been introduced) fully earns a place right beside "Where the Wild Things Are." " said.
