Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Praise for previous Lyle, Lyle Crocodile books: [T]he happiest of creations by a talented and original artist." - Chicago Tribune "America's favorite reptile." - Booklist Lyle the crocodile has a new job walking dogs. As Lyle's excellent reputation as a dog walker spreads, the number of dogs in his charge grows-from one dog to ten! Whether they're frisky or happy, sniffy or snappy, Lyle must get them all walking together in harmony. But never fear-Lyle's winning smile and gentle ways will always save the doggie day! Young children will enjoy walking the dogs-and counting from one to ten-with Lyle. The back cover features a matching activity. "Bernard Waber's beloved crocodile lands a dog-walking job in this peppy story - more than just a counting book - aimed at a younger audience than its predecessors. Debut illustrator Paulis Waber's watercolor, ink, and pencil drawings flawlessly replicate the airiness and humor of her father's iconic art… The tale concludes with kudos to the protagonist ("Good job, Lyle!"), praise that should extend to the collaborators as well." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "
