Cautions: Your kids might just want a sloth for a pet.

KIWI Magazine Review:
A pet sloth?  Sign me up.  Well, maybe.  I mean, sloths don’t really do anything so it is  special kind of kid who can be a good friend to a sloth.  Adorable illustrations accompany this quirky, cute story.

Publisher’s Notes:
The ingenious author of 17 Things I’m Not Allowed to Do Anymore and a brilliant illustrator and production designer of the Coraline movie have created a hilarious, touching picture book perfect for young animal lovers. Like the Caldecott Medal-winning Officer Buckle and Gloria, Sparky stars a pet who has more to offer than meets the eye. When our narrator orders a sloth through the mail, the creature that arrives isn’t good at tricks or hide-and-seek . . . or much of anything. Still, there’s something about Sparky that is irresistible.
