In a lush, green forest, a sloth sleeps. Turn the pages of his story--told in a stunning pop-up display--to witness the tragic process of deforestation and watch as a single seed brings new life. Inventive design and bold art illustrate this important lesson about the environment and the rebirth of what was lost.

Praise For Wake Up, Sloth!…
“Arty (originally published in French) but playful (readers are encouraged to search for the tiny sloth on each spread), 'Wake Up, Sloth!' tells the story of a rain forest that is steadily felled by relentless machines 'with terrible iron teeth.'"--NYTimes.com "...readers should appreciate the elegant design, subtle details, and hopeful message." --Publishers Weekly
