The Lyle series of books has been charming audiences since the mute-but-charismatic crocodile was first introduced in The House on East 88th Street in 1962. Commissioned by the award-winning Seattle Children’s theatre, LYLE THE CROCODILE follows the adventure of Lyle and Hector P. Valenti.

You see times are tough all over, even in New York City, and it’s time for Hector P. Valenti to hang up his tap shoes. But he’s found the perfect home for Lyle, the Crocodile, just in time for the holidays. As the Primm family moves into a new apartment, they’re surprised to find Lyle sleeping in the bathtub. Lyle wins them over with his juggling, dancing, winning ways. Though not everyone is a fan, at first, Lyle manages to save the day and make new friends.
