Mervin the Sloth is About to Do the Best Thing in the World

by Colleen AF Venable

In this hilarious debut picture book, Mervin the Sloth stands silently as giant block letters, reading “Mervin the Sloth is about the do the best thing in the world!”, fall from the sky. What is the best thing in the world? All the animals have their own ideas—flying, digging, ‘gazelling’ (which isn’t even a word!). But when Mervin is too slow, all the animals get bored and walk away. Everyone, that is, except for Mervin’s best friend, Amy the Red Panda, who is rewarded with a great big hug (the best thing in the world).
