The Power of Sloth is Lucy Cooke's celebration of the sloth: the cutest, cuddliest, slowest creature on this planet. In the book she brings together some truly adorable pictures of baby sloths, literally by the bucketful. These delightful, funny pictures are accompanied by a simple text which tells you all about sloths and why we should protect them. We also discover all about the work of the Avarios sloth sanctuary, which, along with the ZSL EDGE programme to protect the pygmy sloth, receives some of the proceeds from this book. This book has been a huge success in the USA, where is was published under the title of The Little Book of Sloth, selling over 50,000 copies and making the New York Times best-seller list. Author and photographer Lucy Cooke has a worldwide following with her YouTube videos of sloths and her Discovery Channel show Meet of the Sloths. Her BBC TV shows, Talk to the Animals, Natures Boldest Thieves and Nature's Miracle Orphans makes her a household name. Lucy regularly appears on the radio as a BBC wildlife presenter. Recent programmes include Saturday Live and The Museum of Curiosity Find out More about what she does on http://www. and more
