Review: Super Sloth

What's your superpower? What kind of superhero would you like to be?

Super Sloth is the story of a super-chilled animal who discovers his own special talents.

One day after finding a comic book about a superhero, Sloth decides he wants to be a one himself.

He has a ready-made mask, all he needs is a cape.

Sloth has super hearing, too. That means he can hear the cry for help when Anteater steals the mangoes.

Unfortunately Sloth is not fast enough to chase the thief, but he discovers he has another talent that can be put to good use instead.

Will Sloth be able to infiltrate Anteater's lair and stop him from living the high life with the best mango juice? Will Super Sloth save the day?

Robert Starling's superstar sloth and ensemble of South American animals show readers that not everyone's talents are the same; and in the spirit of Aesop's Fables, remind us that sometimes it's better to be a tortoise than a hare.

After enjoying the story of Super Sloth, sloth fans will be able to learn more about these unusual creatures with some fun sloth facts at the back of the book. Did you know that sloths don't sweat or smell? 

Super Sloth is ready for young readers and superheroes in waiting to read, and you can visit the author's website for Super Sloth resources as well.
