When Samuel the Sloth feels brave enough to leave his cosy hut, he meets the mysterious Dinglewot. Together they discover incredible places, and Samuel will learn that overcoming fears and doubts means more adventures, friendships and happiness.
During this time in our lives where so many of us have huddled together in (as Samuel would say) our 'little brown huts', we have had time to think about all the things we have dreamt of doing but have never done. Like The Lazy Lagoon, our world stood still and things slowed right down. As we emerge from lockdown, it's time to make a promise to ourselves to try and find the courage to move past the self-doubt that has prevented us from doing things in the past. Our time is coming!
As we navigate this new world together, don't be afraid to try something new! For, in the wise words of the Dinglewot, 'maybe you'll like it or maybe you won't, but if you don't try it then how will you know?'
