Grade 1-4?This action-packed romp features, of course, the lovable crocodile who, as usual, saves the day?with much wackiness along the way. Mr. Grumps, a neighbor, is stricken with a severe case of holiday blues. To add to his gloom, his cat, Loretta, runs away, and Lyle and the Primm family must step in to save the holiday. In a funny, twisting turn-of-events story, Lyle ends up in jail, but is rescued and the misunderstanding cleared up. Loretta is returned, and the whole cast of characters gathers for Christmas Eve dinner. Lively, humorous watercolor-and-ink illustrations perfectly complement Waber's expressive text. Lyle at Christmas?or anytime?is pure joy.?LF

Ages 5^-8. 'Tis the season to be jolly, but Lyle's neighbor, Mr. Grumps, is down in the dumps, instead. "I am having the blahs," he moans, and everybody obligingly tries to cheer him up--especially that lovable crocodile, Lyle. But nothing does the trick; nothing, it seems, can lift the man out of his sorry, sorry holiday blahs. But then his pet cat, Loretta, disappears, and Mr. Grumps finally has a good reason to be unhappy. Has Loretta gone for good? Will well-meaning Lyle get himself into a pickle trying to find her? Will there be reason for celebration on New York's East 88th Street? Lyle's legions of fans can guess the answers, but the croc is so darned--well, lovable, and Waber's pictures are so much fun to look at, that no one will want to miss this latest installment of the adventures of America's favorite reptile.
