About the Author

Graham Annable is an Oscar-nominated cartoonist and animator living in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and two boys. He grew up in Canada, which did a good job of preparing him for the weather of the Pacific Northwest. Mr. Annable has done illustration and animation work for Laika, Dark Horse, LucasArts, Nickelodeon, and Walt Disney Productions, among many others. When he's not huddled inside of his house creating graphic novels for early readers, he spends the rest of his time working on feature films, animated shorts, video games, and indie comic books. He's rather fond of hockey and sloths. But never the two combined.

Graham is the author/illustrator of Peter & Ernesto: A Tale of Two Sloths and The Book of Grickle.


"Annable's soft, expressive illustrations juxtapose Ernesto's easy, optimistic joy with Peter's apprehensive courage as they explore the world for the first time. Many readers will look forward to the next adventure. A solid pick for readers who have graduated from Elephant and Piggie, Frog and Toad, and Narwhal and Jelly"-Kirkus

"This is a funny, touching tale... The characters' different notions of adventure and bravery recall other odd couple friendships, such as Mo Willems's Elephant and Piggie and Holly Hobbie's Toot and Puddle."-School Library Journal starred

"Annable's gift for caricature and zippy dialogue shines through, as he celebrates his characters' contrasting temperaments without a hint of snark."-Publishers Weekly

"Annable skillfully communicates a message that will be especially welcome to anxious kids--that sometimes small adventures take even more courage than big ones. Readers will be eager to reunite with Peter and Ernesto in the next installment of this new graphic novel series."-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
