Synopsis: The sloths at Sleepy Valley Sloth School were content in their slothfulness. Once in a while the teacher would awake and command them all to yawn or snore, but most of the time, the class just slept. One day, a new sloth arrives. She isn’t much like a sloth at all. She is a go-getter, a mover and a shaker—which is to say she actually moves. By mid-morning she’s driven the other sloths crazy. They think she’s a pest, and she thinks they’re nothing but a bunch of bores, that is until a real boar arrives—an official representative of S.O.S. (Society for Organizing Sameness) sent to close the school because of their low academic scores. Something has to be done, and all eyes turn to Sparky. Even with all of her energy though, Sparky can’t save the school alone.
Readers are sure to enjoy this humorous tale that celebrates the value of both individuality and being true to oneself.

Review: Whoever thought a bunch of slumbering sloths could do so well on a standardized test? But that's what happens--with a healthy dose of hoodwinking--in this tongue-in-cheek schoolroom story from comic duo Helen Lester (on words) and Lynn Munsinger (on sloths).

Everything's quietly copacetic at Sleepy Valley Sloth School: "Once in a while the teacher would remember his job and wake up with a lesson. 'All right, now,' he would drawl, 'everybody yawn.' Or 'Keep those snores coming.' Or 'All together, students, let's roll over.'" But one day an energetic young sloth (they do, apparently, exist) starts mixing things up, much to the annoyance of her classmates. But her "vim and vigor and vitality" seem to have shown up not a minute too soon, because she's got to find a way for Sleepy Valley to pass the ratings board test of the Society for Organizing Sameness (the S.O.S., represented in this case by a wild boar in a bow tie).

Lester's story is often fun and funny, but the best parts of this book come from Munsinger's whimsically worn-out sloths--slumped under desks, draped over swing sets, even stacked up (snoozing) in between building blocks. Score one for the sloths, indeed. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes
