Another lovely installment of Peter & Ernesto. I love these sloths.
Returning to the same characters and territory he explored in the first book, Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths, the author/illustrator continues to flesh out the world in which the sloths live. After their favorite tree is destroyed in a hurricane, the two friends and three other sloths must find a new home that will keep them safe from predators and allow them to relax in comfort. They try various spots, but nothing seems ideal. After a bird suggests that there's the perfect tree near ...more

Another Peter and Ernesto book exploring their friendship and different personality styles. In this one, a terrible hurricane destroys their home and they need to find a new one. I like that despite their very different personalities they support each other instead of getting horribly irritated with each other! Miss 4 really enjoys the sloths and hopes there will be a third adventure.

Miss 4 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or th

I obtained this ARC for an honest review. So I loved the first Peter & Ernesto book, and this one was also cute but not quite as impressive. There is a lot more singing and the story goes very slowly, which is ironic considering it’s a story about sloths. I liked the story but I might not get the second one for my library. It’s definitely a good book to give to younger graphic novel readers who like animals.

Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for providing a review copy.

Another delightful installation of this graphic novel series for young readers. Peter and Ernesto are sloths with very different personalities, but both find themselves very useful when a hurricane blows down their home tree and they must find a new one. Great for fans of Bird and Squirrel or Narwhal and Jellyfish.
I love Peter & Ernesto! They make such a great team ;-) In this second tale, our intrpid sloth friends lose their home to a hurricane and have to traverse the jungle to find another great tree to live in. Always enthusiastic Ernesto and practical Peter have to make multiple decisions along the way to stay safe and find their new home, so of course hilarity and adventure ensue!

Cuuuuuute! And this time, with more sloths! And other animals, too. I love that Peter has learned how to channel his worrying into being the guy who thinks ahead to keep his troop of friends safe. And I love how Ernesto is still the bubbly personality who keeps everybody moving. They are, indeed, and good team.

Such fun!

Peter and Ernesto are just as funny in this book as the first! This time a hurricane decimates their tree and they have to find a new home with their friends. They overcome many unexpected obstacles and meet all sorts of animals along the way.

A fun travel adventure with Peter & Ernesto and a cavalcade of other jungle characters. I can't wait to read more about these two and their friends. A great book (series) for introducing graphic novels to children.

I aspire to Ernesto’s positivity, but I’m honestly the worry-wart Peter. Also, this graphic novel was even funnier than the first one. I laughed out loud several times. Who knew sloths could have such grand adventures?

I just love Peter and Ernesto from the first book, and this time they are joined by a number of friends in their quest to find a new home after their tree is destroyed. The characters are endearing. The illustrations are delightful. A very fun read.

It's another wild adventure for these two friends and this time they're joined by their whole clan as they go out to find a new home. Along the way they'll encounter lots of animals both friendly and unfriendly and some surprises as well!

Thank you to First Second Books and NetGalley for access to this ARC.

I'm not quite as enamored with this volume as with the first in the series but it's fun and the kids will like it.

Once again, sobbing over these sloths. I’m wrecked emotionally. Peter and Ernesto are friendship GOALS.

It's the return of my favorite sloth buddies! Peter and Ernesto are back, and they've got a new adventure when a hurricane blows their beloved tree away! Peter, Ernesto, and the rest of their sloth friends must set out to find a new tree. A great tree. A tree just like the one they had, preferably. As they journey through the jungle, there are new dangers to brave: angry ants, slithering snakes, running pigs, and a very hungry jaguar! Ernesto is up to the challenge, but poor Peter... well, Peter ...more

A hurricane destroys the sloths tree and so into the jungle they go to find a new home. Wonderful and humorous illustrations help graphic novel excel.

The colors were very monochromatic that I had a difficult time turning each page. Each page was very similar. The theme was extremely confusing. I did enjoy the sloth facts at the end of the book and would have appreciated to have more of that.

This is a super cute graphic novel about friendship and going on an adventure! I was surprised by how much I liked it! And sloths? Can it get any cuter?! I know my students will LOVE this book! I can't wait to add it to our library collection and share it!

Very cute. I liked the first Peter & Ernesto book, but this one has sealed the deal for me. The adventures they meet with different kinds of animals were engaging and very well-illustrated. I find that some children's graphic novels don't do the best job with transitioning between panels, leaving the reader to have to fill in the blanks in the jump, but Graham Annable does a wonderful job of fully illustrating the character's movements throughout the story. I don't do this often, but I laugh ...more
