Review text

In this visualization of the well-known nursery rhyme, the sleeper is a baby sloth, the cradle a long-suffering sloth parent hanging from a tree. The bough does indeed break, in a hilarious beat of freeze-frame cartoon panic. Not to worry, though; everyone arrives on the ground alive and unharmed. In her amusing flat-textured illustrations, Quintanilla ably captures the distinct mixture of joy and exhaustion familiar to all new parents. VERDICT This charming update of an old classic makes a humorous addition to all collections.
