Twignibble by Henry L. Herz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Twignibble is a very cute children's book that talks about big stuff - caring about your friends, being resourceful and creative, and taking care of the environment (stop destroying everything, horrible humans! - no, he doesn't actually say that). The colourful illustrations (by Debi Pickler) are eye-catching and makes you want to just gaze at the pages over and over again. The story is engaging and an easy read for children.
Twignibble the sloth sets off around the world in his solar-powered helicopter to help his friends. From Big Gulp the grouper to Winddancer the Harpy Eagle, Twignibble thinks of various ways to save his friends and their habitats from being destroyed by pollution and poaching. Along the way, he also drops tidbits of what these various animals look like and how they live.
Twignibble is the second offering from Henry Herz and his two sons and is aimed at young readers from ages 5 - 8.
