Peter & Ernesto: Sloths in the Night (Hardcover)
From Box Trolls director Graham Annable comes Peter & Ernesto: Sloths in the Night, an immensely charming new addition to his brilliant graphic novel series about the endearing friendship between two sloths.
Peter and Ernesto love the jungle, but they know how dangerous it can be at night. From clumsy bats to crazed owls to rumors of a dragon, there are countless things that make the darkness perilous for sloths.
That’s why, one day, when their friend Bernard goes missing just as the sun is setting, Peter and Ernesto quickly gather their tribe to form a search party. However, while these sloths have some sense of the dangers that they’ll face while looking for Bernard, there are surprises lurking in the shadows that will surpass their wildest imaginings!

"Thick lines, white space framing panels, and a large font make this perfect for readers newer to graphic novels...[The sloths'] big expressions and body language perfectly complement the dialogue’s sweet, silly humor."— Kirkus
Praise for Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths:
"The characters' different notions of adventure and bravery recall other odd couple friendships, such as Mo Willems's Elephant and Piggie and Holly Hobbie's Toot and Puddle."— School Library Journal, starred review
"Annable's soft, expressive illustrations juxtapose Ernesto's easy, optimistic joy with Peter's apprehensive courage as they explore the world for the first time.
