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.
* "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*
* "Move over, pandas—there’s a new adorable wild animal on the picture-book scene. Sloth aficionado Cooke casts the sloths of Costa Rica’s sloth sanctuary (which she dubs “Slothville”) in an adorable photo-essay that combines vivid images of the photogenic residents with lively information about sloths in general and individual residents...kids with patience for the book’s longer length will enjoy listening to it as a read-aloud, and plenty of youngsters will be happy just to flip through the images of an unfamiliar but deeply cuddle-able collection of creatures."
