Publisher Summary

It’s Slumby the sloth’s first day of school in the rainforest. Can he keep up with everyone and still be himself?

Everyone loves Slumby; he’s kind, he’s most always happy, and butterflies follow him everywhere. Slumby knows that the other students at school like him, except that he moves…so…very…slowly.

When he is too slow to compete in the turtle race, or play boa rope, or play armadillo ball, what is he to do? It can be hard to be left out. Then again, when one of his classmates is in danger, Slumby might be the only one who can help.

Acclaimed Italian duo author Chiara Carminati and illustrator Roberta Angaramo work together to create a sweet, heartfelt story about how people have different strengths.
