Synopsis

Mervin the Sloth is About to Do the Best Thing in the World by Colleen A. F. Venable

Mervin the Sloth is about to do the best thing in the world. Can you guess what it is? Flying! says the bird. Gazelling! says the gazelle. Digging! says the prairie dog. Hurry up, Mervin! But Mervin moves so slowly. Are you patient enough to wait? No? Turn the page!

Reviews

Emerging readers will delight in reading this metafiction narrative. ...The simple, distinguished watercolor illustrations create drama, and the details on every page invite repeated viewings. A fabulous choice for young readers and for storytime sharing. --School Library Journal

About the Author

Colleen AF Venable says the best thing in the world is collaborating with friends. She spent many years convincing her parents that a sloth is the best pet in the world, but she never got one. Instead she has a pet bunny and five pet fish in a sixty-gallon aquarium. She lives with her animals in Brooklyn, New York. Ruth Chan says the best thing in the world is being able to laugh really hard at yourself. She has always loved sloths, too, and even made an obnoxiously huge paper sloth in second grade. Ruth spends much of her time hugging her (non-paper) cat and dog in Brooklyn, New York.
