Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths

by Graham Annabale. New York, NY: First Second, 2018


Peter and Ernesto are sloths. And while they’re best friends they are nothing alike. He and Ernesto love climbing to the top of the tree where they live and watch the clouds and sky. One day, however, Ernesto wonders what the sky looks like in other places. He needs to explore. Peter however, loves their tree and never wants to leave. After Ernesto leaves to explore, Peter stays behind and frets.


This is a story about how friendships can survive differences – with a lot of love and some sacrifices on both sides.
