Dovendyret og sommerfuglen

In the South American rainforest, there lives a strange animal. An animal that hangs upside down almost its entire life and lives on leaves with so little nutrition that it can do nothing but hang upside down. Say hello to the sloth, probably the world’s quietest and nicest wild animal. But did you know that there is another animal living in the fur of the sloth? A very tiny animal, and that this tiny animal and the sloth depend on each other to survive?

This book was written by Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson with illustrations by Bård Sletvold Torkildsen. Anne is an insectologist and loves telling people all about exciting creepy-crawlies. She is also the author of EXTRAORDINARY INSECTS for adults, which has been nominated for the Brage Prize, translated into over twenty languages and become an international bestseller.
