Could sloths be the new meerkats? Find out in this children's picture book about a little girl and her adorable pet sloth, Sparky.
A little girl wants a pet. She's not fussy, any will do. Her mother said no to a bird and bunny and trained seal. Then she agrees to the sloth, Sparky!
Sloths don't know how to fetch. Or roll over. But they sure know how to play dead.
What's an eager pet owner to do?
