Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is Russell.

Sometimes Russell is just a little bit out of step with the rest of the flock.

All the sheep are falling asleep — except Russell.

What's a sheep to do?

Russell tries everything ... until, at last, he falls asleep.

Review:

"Humans who have trouble falling asleep have been known to count sheep. But what do insomniacs of the woolly-coated variety do? Russell, a sheep longing for shuteye, is on the case in this sweet-natured picture book. When all is quiet except for Russell, the playfully stocking-capped critter tries everything to lull himself into slumber. Making things darker doesn't help: 'the really dark really scared him.' And searching for a new place to get cozy is a bust, too. ('He tried the hollow of a tree./ That was too creepy!') At long last he gives counting a go: his feet, the stars in the sky — and ultimately, sheep — to fine effect. British native Scotton's children's book debut blends silly and warm into the kind of package that appeals to a broad age range. His stylized sheep — all fleecy white fluff atop matchstick-thin legs, with ping-pong-ball eyes — are simultaneously endearing and comic against a dark night-sky background. The compositions vary in perspective, and Scotton uses spot illustrations to pick up the pace, and framed full-spread paintings when Russell takes a pause. This fresh-feeling bedtime story about one animal's restless ramblings should prove an entertaining send-off-to-the-Sandman for young readers. Ages 3-7."

I have read Russell the Sheep 5 times in 24 hours! It is classic ! The artwork is fabulous, the depth of the characters, the little frog devine...I need to know his name..does he have a name. I shall now give this book to all my friends children and some who aren't kids. I'm not.
I actually went looking in the biography section for the new John Lennon book and I have this little crush on Russell Brand and was actually thinking about him when I went downt the biography isle and there on the shelf was Russell the Sheep...seredipity ? I think so :) now I must go find Russell and the Treasure and I need a hat..I already have the frog :)
A fab book!!!
