(From the publisher):
Everyone loves Lyle. The Primm family certainly does. And the bakery lady. And Mr. Delight, the ice cream man. And bird. And the children. And in return Lyle loves the whole, wide, wonderful world.
Life is happy for Lyle until he begins to receive mysterious notes, notes that say "I hate you, I hate you more than anything, I hate you so much that I can't stand it." Difficult though it is to believe, Lyle has an enemy.
Distraught by these notes, Lyle works so hard at being nice that he is positively exhausted by the end of the day. But the notes keep coming and coming, until one day Mrs. Primm discovers Lyle's secret enemy.
Why Lyle is disliked and how he convinces everyone that all crocodile's aren't bad is Bernard Waber's new Lyle adventure. The author-artist's expressive and amusing illustrations capture this colorful character in one of his most unusual predicaments to date.
