Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The lovable crocodile of East 88th Street here takes a back seat to Felicity, his rambunctious mother. According to PW , ``The story is carried on the strength of the warm illustrations, rendered in blotted ink line and soft watercolor washes.'' Ages 5-8. Oct.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3 Lyle the Crocodile is back and, with him, his charming, if socially naive mother, Felicity ``a name of her own choosing''. Less focused than others in the series, this begins with Felicity settling happily into life with the Primm family and her beloved son, Lyle. Meanwhile, Lyle is developing his anti-burglar technique; Mrs. Primm announces she will soon have a baby; and Felicity, ``new to our ways,'' is arrested for shoplifting and sentenced to six months of public service. Felicity chooses hospital work and proves to be a superb nurse. And, of course, this is a great help to the Primms when their new baby, Miranda, is finally born. Waber has a facility with language and rhythm that accounts, at least in part, for the enduring charm of his reptilian hero. It establishes a tone of innocence and earnestness where anything might happen, but everything is bound to turn out all right. His colorful watercolor cartoons show a fine sense of family and place and an energetic use of composition, line, and design. Lovers of Lyleand they are legionwill take this latest chapter in his eventful life immediately to heart. Marcia Hupp, The Ferguson Lib . , Stamford, Conn.
