Lyle Lyle Crocodile
Today is my father-in-law's birthday. His name is Lyle and when I saw this book I knew Madeleine and Henry had to have it. This was in heavy reading rotation when they were toddlers. It's a cute and quite silly story.
Lyle is a nice pet to the Primm family. But he is always scaring cranky Mr. Grumps and his cat, Loretta. Lyle is sent to the zoo where he is very unhappy. But when he saves Mr. Grumps and Loretta from a house fire his reputation and his place back home with the Primms is restored.
