Lyle the crocodile has a new job walking dogs. As Lyle’s excellent reputation as a dog walker spreads, the number of dogs in his charge grows—from one dog to ten! Whether they’re frisky or happy, sniffy or snappy, Lyle must get them all walking together in harmony. But never fear—Lyle's winning smile and gentle ways will always save the doggie day! Young children will enjoy walking the dogs—and counting from one to ten—with Lyle.
“Lyle has a new job: dog walking. It starts out simply enough as he skips along behind one frisky pup. But each day adds another dog, until the crocodile has to control 10 dogs trying to chase a squirrel. The simple concept of this counting-book story is well executed, and Lyle's sunny disposition has lost none of its appeal since his debut in 1962. The author's daughter plies her own watercolors here; her lines are looser, her palette brighter than her father's, but the characters' expressions come through just as clearly.”
