Praise For Lyle Walks the Dogs: A Counting Book

"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
