Whoand#39;s that sleeping in our tree? When a group of kids finds an animal happily napping in their backyard, they set out to discover what it is and where it belongs. As they search and searchandmdash;never noticing all the posters and news articles about a sloth thatand#39;s broken out of the zooandmdash;they finally discover the identity of the snoozing creature. And when sloth wakes up, itand#39;s in for a BIG surprise! Frann Preston-Gannon has created an endearing, adorable, and huggable title character; a group of intrepid children; and a wildly humorous situation that will appeal to young readers.

Review:

"'It's hard work being a farmer.' True enough, but when the farm animals are dinosaurs (along with a few carnivorous-looking plants) the challenges ramp up considerably. Those critters eat a lot and require plenty of elbow grease to stay clean — the manure pile alone boggles the imagination (while also tickling readers' funny bones, of course). The farmer doesn't exactly take it all in stride, but he's diligent and professional from sunup to sundown and still capable of appreciating how 'new life is always beginning on a farm.' At book's end, it's clear that all the dinosaurs under his care love him — maybe a little too much. Preston-Gannon's (How to Lose a Lemur) layered images are rendered in rich, loamy colors, and her consistent use of a single plane gives a good sense of a landscape where there's always another chore to be done. To her great credit, the word 'dinosaur' never appears in the text, which makes the improbable scenario even funnier and more meaningful: whether it's an ant farm or one filled with terrible (but cute) lizards, 'Your farm needs you!' Ages 3 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

It's hard work being a farmerand#8212;and even harder running a DINOSAUR FARM! Children will love spending a day on this vibrant farm, filled with appealing prehistoric creatures of every shape and size. They'll follow the farmer from dawn till dusk, through feedings, cleanings, baby hatchings, and finally to a sweet bedtime nighty-night. Who knew dinosaurs could be so cuddly? With clever dino-touches throughout, Frann Preston-Gannon's picture book will become a perennial favorite.and#160;
