Read if you like: the illustrations of Liz Climo and all things sloth.
Y’all, everyone needs something in their life that makes them smile at just the thought of it. For me, that thing is a sloth. I just love sloths. This has led to a myriad of sloth gifts across the years: sloth lunchbox, sloth tea strainer, sloth cookies, sloth pens, even a lavender-scented microwavable sloth. Nothing gets me like the swimming sloths at the beginning of Planet Earth 2.
So, when I heard about Slothila from my lovely friend RA, I knew she was right up my alley. Dante’s instagram account is a lovely place and this book is an even lovelier compilation of the life of Slothilda, from how she works out to how she handles money to how she cares for her pet corgi.
This book would make the perfect present for any sloth lovers in your life (or for yourself if you just need a treat). It’s just so happy. I smiled the entire time I was reading it. I’ll look at it maybe every week for the rest of my life? I’ll keep you updated.
Are you a sloth lover? If not, what has your heart?

SYNOPSIS: (AS TOLD BY THE BACK OF THE BOOK)
A charming collection of comics about an ambitious little sloth who’d rather just take it easy.
Are you a fan of carbs, the internet, and naps? Slothilda is your spirit animal!
From former Simpsons animator Dante Fabiero comes this all-too-real comic series about an adorable little sloth who’s driven by her desire for self-improvement. Slothilda explores an inner conflict we can all relate to―the desire to succeed and grow, while paradoxically dealing with the ever present temptation to sloth.
With themes related to work, fitness, food, shopping, and pets―this book shows that you’re not the only sloth at heart.
