Slow Loris is just pure fun.
Alexis Deacon's pictures are fantastic and different to your bog standard childrens books. They are truly original and not garish in the least. And Slow loris is mint! Fantastically realised, with his deep, dark eyes and little pink fingers. You really get feel for just how slow, the slow loris is. Just one simple motion spread over a series of images shows this perfectly. It even takes an hour to scratch his bottom! People think he is slow and boring, and so do all the other animals in the Zoo. But Slow Loris couldnt care less, because he has a secret..... And when his secret is revealed, the drawing showing it is just great! A complete change of pace and then it gets really funny. There is the old question, just what do zoo animals do when no-one is looking? Slow loris is found out, and everyone joins in the fun. Theres a little bit of "lift the flap" action too. This is very funny, and good enough to be enjoyed again and again! Read the other Alexis Deacon books too! So cool!
