From Our Editors

Everyone loves Lyle the Crocodile. The Primm family certainly does. And the bakery lady. And Mr. Delight, the ice cream man. And Lyle loves the whole, wide wonderful world and thinks the world loves him, until one day he receives a mysterious note that says, 'I hate you. I hate you more than anything.' Why Lyle is disliked and how he convinces everyone that all crocodiles aren't bad is the dilemma in this delightful picture book about one of the most lovable animals ever created.
