  • Lauren
    My new favorite graphic novel for young readers! Think a mix of Burt and Ernie, Finding Nemo, Mo Willems, and SLOTHS!!

    A digital copy of this book was provided to me by First Second Books via NetGalley.This is quite a charming comic book about the adventures of two best sloth friends, Peter and Ernesto. The friends have a great dynamic that kids can learn from. They can also see the value in following your friend to the edge of the world, even when you would rather stay on your favorite tree forever. Sure, the tree is nice and cozy, but what good is it without yo...
  • Michele Knott
    Love this earlier graphic novel. Perfect for readers who are looking for something longer, but not ready for a full graphic novel. And it has sloths.
  • Erica
    A cute story that will appeal to younger children. This is a good one for the themes of friendship and bravery. The art was delightful.
  • Destinee Sutton
    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 to be some twist about how it was taking ages for Peter and Ernesto to get anywhere, but, alas, it didn't seem to factor in. Still, I think a good number of kids will alread...

    Peter and Ernesto are friends and they are also sloths. Usually, they are happy hanging out in their tree together, but after some cloud watching, Ernesto decides that he wants to see the ENTIRE sky and sets off on an adventure. Peter is terrified that something awful will happen to his friend and he cautiously goes looking for him. Meanwhile, Ernesto is having a great time making new friends and seeing all sorts of different skies – ocean skie...
  • Annie
    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 daughter (five) gave it two thumbs up. Seriously. This is how she responds when I ask her how what she thinks about books. With her thumbs. My son (nine) took it to school ...
  • Hannah
    Move over Frog & Toad... here come Peter & Ernesto. Hilariously deadpan and goofily sweet, this great beginning reader graphic novel will make readers want to drop everything (except, maybe, this book) to make cloud pictures and star gaze.
  • Sabrina
    Ernesto is a very unusual sloth, he is not at all slow or lazy like the other animals think he is. In fact he decides he wants to see all of the sky so he goes off on an adventure, leaving poor Peter behind.
  • Jillian Heise
    Bravery, friendship, humor, helping others, and a couple of sloths. This was too fun. A perfect early graphic novel for my transitional readers. They're going to love giggling with this one.
  • Judith
    super cute!
  • Mary Lee
    What we won't do for our friends!! Great graphic novel for beginning readers.
  • Ellon
    Dare I say this was actually a bit too cute? I did enjoy the theme of friendship. I love how Peter was able to be brave thinking about his friend.

    Grickle creator and Oscar nominated animator and cartoonist Graham Annable debuts on the children's graphic novel scene with Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths. A simultaneously funny, dry and sincere read, this graphic novel is about the deep friendship between the titular two sloths, and what happens when one breaks away from their safe space and goes exploring.[caption id="attachment_5296" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Image via Macmilla...
  • Molly
    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! Both sloths have their own sorts of adventure in this delightful graphic novel, which is rife with deadpan, dry humor. Pretty delightful.
  • Earl
    Two friends are separated when one of them has wanderlust. Can they find their way back to one another?This first in a new early chapter graphic novel series will be perfect as a read-aloud with all its silly songs and fun friendship storyline.
  • Josh
    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 about the world, and themselves, in this journey that takes them to encounters with a musically inclined whale, an encouraging macaw, a wise camel, some singing monkeys, a ...
  • Barbara
    Sloths might seem to be unlikely characters for a graphic novel adventure story, but because the two featured here are so different, the story works well. Best friends Peter and Ernesto love living in their tree and enjoying the simple things in life, but Ernesto gets the wanderlust and longs to see what else is out there. But Peter is too afraid to venture out of his leafy comfort zone. He stays home while Ernesto has several adventures and take...

He has to cross a shaky bridge and a river, then find a way across the ocean. Ernesto makes friends along the way, discovering oceans, mountains, deserts and ...

    First sentence: Rabbit. Good one. Oh! Bear! Oooo! Scary! You finish the hibiscus, Ernesto! Thanks, Peter!Premise/plot: Peter and Ernesto star in this graphic novel for young readers. Peter and Ernesto may both be sloths but the similarities end there. Ernesto is ADVENTUROUS, BRAVE, CURIOUS, DARING. Peter is, well, perfectly content to stay in his one tree and watch the same piece of sky every day. He doesn't want adventure. He fears nearly everyt...

This time, Ernesto decides to do something different, he sets off to see "all of the sky", not just the small piece that they see all the time. Peter is not interested but cannot persuade Ernesto to stay. What happens in the adventures of them both is told in a graphic novel forma...
  • William Stanger
    I borrowed this little children's graphic novel from the library. It's a charming tale about friendship told through the lives of two sloths, Peter and Ernesto. It's a great story, that I'm sure children will enjoy. Bored with his life of staying up in a tree, Ernesto decides to head out and explore the world. Peter is scared to do so and tells Ernesto it's a scary world out there with lots of different things to fear. It's such a short read, so ...

    So, so cute and it had me laughing at many a turn! Ernesto is itching for adventure and decides to go off exploring! Peter is much more content to stay at home in their treetop, but reluctantly follows after to make sure Ernesto stays safe (read: doesn't get eaten by a bear). Ernesto goes on epic adventures across ocean and desert and tundra and meets many a friend along the way to share in his journeys. Peter makes it partway, nervously traversi...
