When the Primms move to the Upper East Side of New York City, they discover a surprise in their new home. There in the tub of their upstairs bathroom is a crocodile! The good news, however, is that he’s very friendly.
Called Lyle, the croc becomes the family pet. Lyle also gains the trust and friendship of most of the neighbors. But slow to join those ranks is Mr. Grumps; he hates just about everything. It isn’t until Mr. Grumps and his cat are victims of a fire and rescued by Lyle when the curmudgeon changes his mind about the Primm’s reptilian family member. It’s not all smooth-sailing for the Primms and Lyle, though. When Lyle’s original owner, Hector P. Valenti, decides to reclaim his croc, the family and Lyle are heartbroken. In the end, fortunately, Valenti is persuaded that Lyle belongs with the Primms
