This is a hilarious book about a school for sloths. They are so happy to be sloths. When they are in school, they sleep the whole day. That is, until a new sloth, Sparky arrives. She is a real go-getter with lots of energy. The other sloths think that she is a pest and she thinks that they are real bores. However, when a real boar arrives to close down the school, it's up to Sparky to save the day! Can one energetic sloth save the day? Read this book to see!  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003-2004)
