This is book number 3 in the Peter & Ernesto series.
From Box Trolls director Graham Annable comes Peter & Ernesto: Sloths in the Night, an immensely charming new addition to his brilliant graphic novel series about the endearing friendship between two sloths.
Peter and Ernesto love the jungle, but they know how dangerous it can be at night. From clumsy bats to crazed owls to rumors of a dragon, there are countless things that make the darkness perilous for sloths.
That’s why, one day, when their friend Bernard goes missing just as the sun is setting, Peter and Ernesto quickly gather their tribe to form a search party. However, while these sloths have some sense of the dangers that they’ll face while looking for Bernard, there are surprises lurking in the shadows that will surpass their wildest imaginings!
About the Author
Graham Annable is an Oscar-nominated cartoonist and animator living in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, and two boys. When he's not huddled inside of his house creating graphic novels like Peter & Ernesto for early readers, he spends the rest of his time working on feature films, animated shorts, video games, and indie comic books. He's rather fond of hockey and sloths. But never the two combined.
For fantasy fans who want a more historical tale, or historical fiction buffs who want something a little more fantastical this genre-bending book is the perfect choice! It follows Lee Westfall, a young woman living in 19th century Georgia who has a secret: she is a gold diviner. When tragedy strikes her family, her only option for escape and opportunity seems to be joining a wagon trail west to strike it rich in California’s gold rush. But the journey is more harrowing than she can imagine… she must disguise herself as a boy and face all manner of tribulations on the trail. This book is incredibly engrossing… not only is the story suspenseful, but the characters and fantastical elements are portrayed in such an intimate way it feels almost like reading real history. - Linnea
