*Reviewed from uncorrected e-galley.*
children's graphic fiction (talking sloths go on adventures). I loved this! Such a sweet friendship between the two sloths, and so many charming characters met during their adventures when one of them decides he needs to see the rest of the sky. Another quality story from First Second.
I absolutely loved it! Very nice graphic novel for kids about two sloths and the most unlikely adventure they had. Ernesto wanted to see the whole sky and leaves the comfort of his tree to search for new places. Peter is afraid to join his friend, but soon follows Ernesto to try to protect him from danger. Super cute friendship story, overcoming fears and having a great time. Looking forward to more!
Thanks to Netgalley for the advanced reader copy.
While there isn't a lot going on plot-wise, this book is a great introduction to comics for kids.
Two friends are separated when one of them has wanderlust. Can they find their way back to one another?
This first in a new early chapter graphic novel series will be perfect as a read-aloud with all its silly songs and fun friendship storyline.
What we won't do for our friends!! Great graphic novel for beginning readers.
Peter an Ernesto are two best-sloth-friends who live together in a tree. They've never left before, until one day, Ernesto gets curious and decides that he's going to go off and see all the different bits of sky there is to see. Peter is much more cautious and nervous than Ernesto - he'd rather stay home in their familiar tree. But, fearing for Ernesto, Peter sets out to follow him, and together they have some grand and absolutely adorable adventures. A lovely graphic novel for middle-grade leve ...more
"Adventure" means different things to different people. Carefree Ernesto wants to experience all the things and sets off to do so. Peter is terrified of anything new, so following just a wee bit of Peter's route is far more adventurous for him than Peter's experience of limitless roaming.
Wonderfully expressive artwork, limited text, and unironic humor make this a delightful graphic novel tale for young readers.
