Fresh, original and wonderfully inventive, this fabulous picture book introduces a very exciting new talent to the picture book scene.

Slow Loris lived in a zoo, but he didn’t care for it very much. Slow Loris wasn’t even his real name, but that was what everyone called him because he was a very slow loris. In fact he was so slow that it took him ten minutes to walk from one end of his branch to the other, and half an hour to eat a satsuma. Everyone thought that Slow Loris was really boring, but he didn’t care one bit. Why? Because he had a wild, secret life of his own.

A simple and witty text, together with striking and humorous artwork, makes this an exceptional picture book.
