    An adorable graphic novel about friendship, worrying, and adventure. It reminded me of an old favorite Toot & Puddle -- one friend wants to stay home, the other wants to see the world. The only thing missing for me was jokes about how slow sloths are. I kept waiting for there t...

    To quote the wise words of MC Scat Kat, ?opposites attract?. Particularly when those opposites are best buddies. The idea of the carefree soul, untethered by earthly woes, paired with a perpetually concerned best friend, is a staple in all possible forms of entertainment. Children?...

    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...

    Every. Single. Named. Character. Is. Male. Normally I'm the biggest First Second fan there is, but this irritated me to no end (especially given that all animals are already mostly male in any given picture book or book for young readers). This not only doesn't pass the Bechdel t...

    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...

    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...

    This was very cute and I enjoyed the story. I thought the sloths could have been cuter instead of crayon types bodies, but the characters were really great. One Sloth has to see the world and the other sloth is terrified of the world and content to stay put. One sloth leaves and the...
