Jeffrey and Sloth is a children's book by Kari-Lynn Winters and Ben Hodson. It was published in March 2007 by Orca Book Publishers.

Jeffrey and Sloth first appeared in a 2004 issue of Chameleon, a children's magazine published by the University of British Columbia, as "Jeffrey's Wor(l)ds Meet Sloth". Orca selected this book as one of 9 out of 1600 manuscripts chosen for publication in 2007. The book has come to life beyond the page, as a literacy play performed by Tickle Trunk Players in schools in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto.[1]



Jeffrey can't think of how to start his writing assignment so he doodles instead, only to have his doodle of a sloth come to life and order him about. Jeffrey struggles against the strong-willed Sloth, in the process telling a tale and completing his homework.
