Manny the mammoth, Diego the saber toothed tiger, Sid the sloth, Scrat the scrappy squirrel and other characters from the popular animated film Ice Age 2: the Meltdown are featured in this essential guidebook. Get fascinating profiles of your favorite sub-zero heroes, from Ellie (“I’m a possum!”) to her daredevil brothers Crash and Eddie. I also liked the super cool facts about prehistoric creatures. For example, according to the book’s Sloth Survival Guide, sloths like Sid try to smell so disgusting that most predators take one sniff and think he’s too rotten to eat. Good news for Sid; bad news for his friends! The guide book features pages of commissioned artwork, like aerial maps of the meltdown journey that show how far Manny and his herd traveled to escape the impending glacial flood. Whether you’ve seen any of the Ice Age movies or not, I think you'll like reading this book.
