    "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 roami...

    *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....

    Move over Frog & Toad... here come Peter & Ernesto. Hilariously deadpan and goofily sweet, this great beginning reader graphic novel will make readers want to drop everything (except, maybe, this book) to make cloud pictures and star gaze. ...

    I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I really, really liked this. It was cute and positive. The illustrations were simple but attractive. This is a graphic novel for kids but I think that it will prove to be very popular for adults too! I have already rec...

    Peter and Ernesto are best friends who are usually content to hang around their tree and cloud picture. Ernesto, though, decides he'd like to see a little more of the great big sky, so he sets off on an adventure -- an adventure that leads Peter to worry about him and set off after him...

    A cute story that will appeal to younger children. This is a good one for the themes of friendship and bravery. The art was delightful. ...

    Sloths might seem to be unlikely characters for a graphic novel adventure story, but because the two featured here are so different, the story works well. Best friends Peter and Ernesto love living in their tree and enjoying the simple things in life, but Ernesto gets the wanderlust an...

    So, so cute and it had me laughing at many a turn! Ernesto is itching for adventure and decides to go off exploring! Peter is much more content to stay at home in their treetop, but reluctantly follows after to make sure Ernesto stays safe (read: doesn't get eaten by a bear). Ernesto g...

    Adorable little book about two sloth buddies, Peter and Ernesto. Peter is content in the treetops, cloud watching with his best pal, Ernesto. But Ernesto wants more--he wants to see the whole sky. When Ernesto takes off on a journey, Peter worries, but his friend is off having the time...

    How does a teacher reinforce the fact that sometimes we need to go outside our comfort zones to learn more? Perhaps by using sloths? Ernesto and Peter are the odd couple of sloths. Ernesto likes to explore. Peter likes to stay at home. But both end up learning a great deal more abou...

    Peter and Ernesto are sloths and BFFs. Their favorite pastime is hanging out at the top of the tree, finding shapes in the clouds while snacking on hibiscus flowers. One day, Ernesto realizes he loves his friend and his tree and the sky and everything else but he also knows there are ...

    I was super excited to read this story, as it was written by nearby Sheridan College grad, however I couldn't get into this title. I wanted to enjoy it because the illustrations and sloths were so darling, but the story simply didn't engage well enough. The comic frame format was very ...

    Bravery, friendship, humor, helping others, and a couple of sloths. This was too fun. A perfect early graphic novel for my transitional readers. They're going to love giggling with this one. ...

    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 pro...

    I love sloths, so when I saw this title, I knew I had to read it. These two are great friends, but you know how sloths act, they hang around, seeming to do very little. This time, Ernesto decides to do something different, he sets off to see "all of the sky", not just the small piece t...

    Some sloths will spend years living in the same tree. So what happens when one (Ernesto) decides that he is no longer content and wants to see all the pieces of sky and not just the one above him in the tree he shares with his best friend Peter? Peter, happy making up songs and cloud g...

    A digital copy of this book was provided to me by First Second Books via NetGalley. This is quite a charming comic book about the adventures of two best sloth friends, Peter and Ernesto. The friends have a great dynamic that kids can learn from. They can also see the value in follow...

    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. ...

    Sweet and funny. Evokes comparisons to Frog and Toad before Frog became a little overbearing and Toad started getting all resentful (which is not meant as a burn on the Frog and Toad books which I love deeply and with my whole heart). Both my kids enjoyed Peter and Ernesto. My daug...

    Ernesto is a very unusual sloth, he is not at all slow or lazy like the other animals think he is. In fact he decides he wants to see all of the sky so he goes off on an adventure, leaving poor Peter behind. ...

    This was so cute! It never talks down to its audience, and it's a perfect epic for younger readers. The illustrator did a marvelous job with the facial expressions, and the panels are easy to read, with just enough detail to get the point across without being too busy. Excellent balanc...
