Staff Pick

Do you shriek or weep easily? Then be prepared to go into overload! These little bundles of SQUEE! will melt even the most curmudgeonly naysayers. You'll  find yourself saying, "Kittens? What kittens?", or possibly becoming what I call "sloth-drunk." As a super-sparkly bonus, a portion of the proceeds go directly back to the sloths!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cozy up with adorable baby sloths in this irresistible photographic picture book.

Hang around just like a sloth and get to know the delightful residents of the Avarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, the world’s largest sloth orphanage. You’ll fall in love with bad-boy Mateo, ooh and ahh over baby Biscuit, and want to wrap your arms around champion cuddle buddy Ubu!

From British filmmaker and sloth expert Lucy Cooke comes a hilarious, heart-melting photographic picture book starring the laziest — and one of the cutest — animals on the planet.

Review:

"Cooke writes with a firm sense of authority and a loving irreverence that lifts these pages far above most real-life animal books and should make the inevitable umpteenth readaloud easy to bear." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
