Paulis Waber is the daughter of Bernard Waber. The first Lyle the Crocodile book, The House on East 88th Street, was dedicated to her. Paulis Waber lives with her husband and three children in Washington, DC.
"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
