Sloth is back – now in board book edition!

A group of children find a sloth snoring away in a tree in their garden. Not knowing what it is, they set off to find out. While the two older children dream up increasingly outrageous possibilities, from an astronaut to a pirate, to a space creature, the youngest little girl investigates books and a globe and discovers what it really is and where it lives. But how can the children help the sloth to get home if it won’t wake up?

'a humorous mix of story and facts... the sloth itself, blissfully asleep throughout, is completely endearing'
