If I Had a Sleepy Sloth

Gabby Dawnay, Alex Barrow

A humorous and entertaining tale about a little girl and her pet sloth that imagines life at a much slower pace.

Description

From the duo behind If I Had a Dinosaur, Gabby Dawnay and Alex Barrow’s If I Had a Sleepy Sloth is a charming and imaginative tale about taking the time to slow down.

Have you ever wondered what the best kind of pet is? It’s a sloth, of course! When a little girl imagines experiencing a slower pace of life, she can’t think of a better companion than a sleepy sloth. She could spend almost an entire day just taking a morning walk with her sloth. When the little girl introduces her sloth to her hairdresser, the hairdresser isn’t pleased to discover the moss and moths (ewww!) that live in its fur, but what does that matter when her sloth is a champion on the jungle gym and amazing at climbing trees because of its super gripping skills!

With vibrant illustrations and playful rhymes, If I Had a Sleepy Sloth is a laugh- out-loud story that imagines having a sloth for a pet and provides a welcome alternative to the fast pace of modern life.
