Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Illustrations have verve and are a perfect complement to the story. Highly recommended." —School Library Journal, starred
Children's Literature - Sue Poduska
Published as a collection in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of The House on East 88th Street, this is a truly delightful volume for young and old alike. Contained are the full manuscripts and illustrations of four beloved Lyle classics. The first one introduces the reader to Lyle and his human family. Who knew a crocodile came with the new house? The second story establishes Lyle's place in the community and with the neighbors. Grumpy Mr. Grumps decides that Lyle is not so bad after all. The third story deals with Lyle's feelings of jealousy and how he works through those feelings. The last story is a counting book. Outrageous, silly, and heartwarming, this treasury is great as a read aloud or for younger readers to tackle on their own. Throughout, the author has a lot to say about perceptions and learning to live with our differences. Of course, the illustrations are just as wonderful as the narrative. The last story is illustrated by the author's daughter. Reviewer: Sue Poduska
