Have you heard of The Simpsons, Family Guy, or Disenchantment? How about The Cosmos? You have! How about Dante Fabiero? He’s an animator/artist who contributed to those infamous TV shows. He’s also an author of his new book Slothilda: Living the Sloth Life. Slothilda embodies the constant struggle between the desire for self-improvement and the sloth inside of us all.
After reviewing this Pusheen-like book, I found myself wondering if sloth were in fact catkin. But more on that later.
When Dante contacted me to review his book, I couldn’t say no to the Primetime Emmy Award Honoree. So, I’m happy to offer an honest review of this author-provided book.
I couldn’t help but notice how Slothilda and her corgi friend mirror much of author life and author pet life. Slothilda’s four stages of writer’s block seem all too familiar.
I also appreciate “The “I Deserve” Trap,” which encapsulates the basics of feline life beautifully—one of the many reasons I wonder if sloth and cats are kin.
I was disappointed to see that Slothilda’s journey lacks feline presence. I wonder how I would look as a famous Fabiero creation. Would he capture the dot on my lip? The length of my whiskers? My sheer beauty? How would Slothilda react to meeting me?
Alas, I shall never know.
I do know that this book is highly relatable, adorable, funny, and sweet. I have no doubt it will be a huge success, especially with all its cute related gifs ready to share. No matter which area of life you and your inner sloth struggle with, you’ll find a relatable pictorial of Slothilda sure to please.
I give it a solid 4.75 cat heads of approval. The only thing that would make this book better would have been more cats.
I wish luck to Dante and his own corgi companion on their journey into author life and author pet life. To Slothilda, I hope she captures the hearts of millions.
And now, I return to napping.
