You think you know sloths . . . but do you, really?

 Let me tell you: Elizabeth Shreeve knows sloths. And when she started digging into their history and origins, some of the things she learned set her imagination on fire. Hence—this book! Guaranteed to turn everything you think you know . . . upside down. (GET IT? :D) 

Here’s the deal announcement for this fantastic forthcoming book, including its super-stellar illustrator:

Simon Boughton at Norton Young Readers has acquired world rights to OUT OF THE BLUE author Elizabeth Shreeve’s THE UPSIDE-DOWN BOOK OF SLOTHS, a playful non-fiction roundup that compares modern sloths with their unexpected and amazing prehistoric relatives; Steve Jenkins (WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A TAIL LIKE THIS, ACTUAL SIZE, etc.) will illustrate. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author; the artist represented himself. The book is slated for publication in Winter 2022. 

Hooray for Elizabeth Shreeve, and hooray for ALL OF US who will get to enjoy this fantastic book!!
