This fun early reader is based on the major motion picture Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, inspired by the beloved children’s books by Bernard Waber!
When the Primm family moves to New York City and into the house on East 88th Street, they are surprised to find a crocodile living in their attic. But Lyle isn’t a regular crocodile—he’s playful, and friendly, and he can sing! Meet Lyle, the Primms, and their neighbors in this story based on the film.
Meet Lyle and Friends is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the short sentences, familiar words, and simple concepts of Level One books support success for children eager to start reading on their own.
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 and was adapted for both stage and screen. A Literary Landmark plaque commemorating the adventures of this endearing New York City reptile can now be found on East 88th Street. bernardwaber.com.
