  1. I was reading chapter 3 to my kids the other night and they absolutely lost it! Funny chapter hehe 🙃

  2. A rollicking, fast paced adventure story filled with incredible inventions, dangerous decisions, brave friends, superheroes, and very evil villains! Full review here @gittinskerry The Book Tree

  3. Read this with My Miss 8 and she adored Romeo the Super Sloth there were plenty of laugh out loud moments! Highly recommend for kids that love animals, comedy and action-packed storytelling.

  4. This is a new action-packed series for newly independent readers which combines the author’s love of sloths and superheroes with fast-paced adventures and humour underpinned by friendship and teamwork and the opportunity to learn a little more about one of the planet’s more curious species.. Darlison says, “My goal was to craft an engaging read that allows kids to escape from reality and enter an exciting and intriguing world where animals and humans can accomplish amazing things together,” and she has done this well.
