When Lyle the Crocodile visits Mr. Primm's advertising office, he has tons of fun and makes lots of friends. He also gets Mr. Primm fired. However, Lyle manages to save Mr. Primm's career when he rescues the boss, Mr. Bigg, from the local haunted house.
Bernard Waber, who has written eight delightful books about Lyle the Crocodile, a little boy named Ira, and a firefly named Torchy, is the author of more than seventeen picture books for children. Widely praised by reviewers for his ability to describe common family problems, he is best loved by children for his freeflowing humor and gentle characters.
"Crocodile fans rejoice! Lyle is back and ready to take on the work world. Totally satisfying." School Library Journal, Starred
