Archie No Ordinary Sloth by Heath McKenzie
Published by The Five Mile Press
Archie is a sloth but he is no ordinary sloth. He likes to move & groove, juggle & jump, leap & swing while the other sloths like to flop & snooze. Archie tries everything to get his friends to play with him but they keep telling him to stop it & go away, so he does exactly that.
Archie kept wondering why he was so different to the other sloths. After a short time he becomes lonely so decides to go back home. Fortunately he does because he discovers a sloth eating tiger about to devour the other sloths. Archie, the not so ordinary sloth, leaps into action, chases the tiger away & becomes a hero.
Not only is this book a great read for every child, it is also a wonderful book for children who feel they do not fit in with their peers. It is an entertaining way to encourage these, not so ordinary children, to seek out how they are distinctive & explains that it is not unpleasant to be unusual.
Heath McKenzie has demonstrated his talents further with depictive illustrations in this hardcover book.
