Synopsis: 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.

Hi my name is Lauren and I have a phobia of Sloths. So to answer one of my prompts for the Spooks and Tea readathon I picked up Slothilda.

Slothilda follows a character of the same name with her lil puppy as she sloths about her life.

Honestly if you don’t get really scared by sloths you’re gonna love this little collection of comics and its relatable humour. You’ll read it and be like “MOOD”.

The art work definitely fits the style as its mostly just Slothilda and her puppo that are in colour; her actions are always over the top.

You can read this in one sitting, in like 10 minutes. Its very simple and I think most people will say its cute too.

The book itself is broke into different sections about different day to day life and it’ll get you to reflect a fair bit on your own actions. Maybe you too are a bit too slothlike?

Pick it up if you want and you adore sloths but for me its a no because its sloths and because its a very short read.

3 stars / 5 stars
