HOWARD the cheetah loves being fast. He runs with reckless abandon and never slows down, "not for anything!" However, when Howard hurts his leg and can't run, he is suddenly slow and GRUMPY. How could anyone like being slow? It's up to Quince, a vacationing sloth, to show Howard just how wonderful slow can be!
This engaging story and exuberant art celebrate an unusual friendship as well as the beauty of life at a different pace.
