KIRKUS REVIEW

 Lyle the crocodile is back and he's in demand, especially when he goes with Mr. Primm to the office. He catches the eye of Primm's boss, Mr. Bigg, who thinks Lyle would be the perfect pitchman for Krispie Krunchie Krackles cereal. Primm says no, which costs him his job. When Halloween arrives, Lyle and the Primms go trick-or- treating and hear cries for help coming from the abandoned house next door. They find Mr. Bigg, who has knocked over his ladder and is stuck holding onto the chandelier. They rescue him and are surprised to hear he will be moving in soon. When Mr. Bigg throws a housewarming party, Lyle and the Primms are invited, and Mr. Primm is offered his job back. This latest addition to the Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile series meanders a bit, but most would follow the lovable Lyle anywhere, and Waber's illustrations are, as usual, completely winning. (Picture book. 4-8)
