Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths

By Graham Annable

Peter and Ernesto are sloths. Peter and Ernesto are friends. But Peter and Ernesto are nothing alike. Peter loves their tree and never wants to leave, while Ernesto loves the sky and wants to see it from every place on Earth. When Ernesto leaves to have a grand adventure, Peter stays behind and frets. The two friends grow even closer in separation, as Peter the homebody expands his horizons and Ernesto the wanderer learns the value of home. With ridiculously cute art and simple, funny text, their reunion is even more adorable than you are imagining.

Young readers will really like this graphic novel. The text is not only simple but also age appropriate. The two sloths remind me a bit of Elephant and Piggie and is a good stepping stone from easy readers to graphic novels. Students who like humor or animals will like this book.
