Lyle and the Birthday Party: 04/12/20
Lyle and the Birthday Party by Bernard Waber is the third of the Lyle the Crocodile books which I'm re-reading for nostalgia.
Joshua has a birthday party and Lyle isn't his usual charming self. He's sullen and grumpy. It takes a while but Mrs. Primm figures out that he's envious of all the attention.
Of the ones I've re-read it's my least favorite. There's a point in picture book series where beloved characters turn into mouthpieces for lessons in morality or social mores. That's what basically happened here.
The fourth book is Lovable Lyle (1969)
