Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths Reviews

  • 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.

  • Katya Vinogradova

    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 your best friend by your side? And of course the adv

    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 your best friend by your side? And of course the adventures of Peter and Ernesto will teach those kids who are reluctant to step out of their comfort zone that the world may be a big and scary place, but it's also full of exciting things just waiting to be explored.

    My new favorite graphic novel for young readers!

    Think a mix of Burt and Ernie, Finding Nemo, Mo Willems, and SLOTHS!!

    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 with him the day after I shared it with him so tha

    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 with him the day after I shared it with him so that he could show all his friends. He wrote “This contains an amazing book” on a padded mailer and put the book inside to keep it safe.

    Peter and Ernesto are sloths and BFFs. Their favorite pastime is hanging out at the top of the tree, finding shapes in the clouds while snacking on hibiscus flowers.

    One day, Ernesto realizes he loves his friend and his tree and the sky and everything else but he also knows there are more pieces of sky to see. He decides to follow his curiosity, promising Peter he'll be back soon.

    Peter and Ernesto are sloths and BFFs. Their favorite pastime is hanging out at the top of the tree, finding shapes in the clouds while snacking on hibiscus flowers.

    One day, Ernesto realizes he loves his friend and his tree and the sky and everything else but he also knows there are more pieces of sky to see. He decides to follow his curiosity, promising Peter he'll be back soon.

    Peter is a worrywart who does not like to take risks, who is comfortable with the status-quo and not long after his friend departs, he becomes worried that Ernesto is going to get eaten out there in the wide world. Probably by a bear. Oh, Peter also likes to sing.

    Ernesto explores.

    Peter reluctantly decides to follow.

    Things happen.

    The story is fine. It's cute. Kids will love it.

    For me, though, it doesn't have that spark, the charm and wit, of so many of these other opposites-attract book.

    The illustrations, however, had me enthralled. They are just so fun and I love them to bits!

    Also, some of karen's favorite woodland creatures make an appearance!

    All in all, the pictures carried this story for me but I think other readers will enjoy both.

    Wondering why my pictures are always so lousy? It's because I just snap a shot from the book in front of me. I don't change the lighting, I don't try to make it look nice. I like to pretend I'm showing what I see but, honestly, it's me being lazy.

    An adorable graphic novel about friendship, worrying, and adventure. It reminded me of an old favorite

    -- 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 already know that sloths are super slow and find it

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 already know that sloths are super slow and find it funny on the face of it that a sloth wants to travel around the world.

    Overall very cute and compelling. I loved the ending. All around an easy sell to even the most reluctant readers.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

Meanwhile, Ernesto is having a great time making new friends and seeing all sorts of different skies – ocean skies, desert skies, constellations, northern lights. Both sloths end up meeting and making new friends, and eventually Ernesto decides it’s time to come home and Peter is there waiting for him. Very sweet story about friendship with adorable sloth characters.
