Children's Book Review: Russell the Sheep
Russell the Sheep
Written and illustrated by: Rob Scotton
Published by: HarperCollins, 2005
With a distinctive humor and style, Scotton introduces a sheep with a "baaaad" case of insomnia, until he discovers the one thing he needs to count to get to sleep.
* Rob Scotton, the author of the Splat the Cat series brings us a picture book. Poor Russell can't fall asleep. He tries everything from finding a better place to sleep to counting things. Although this book was shelved in the math/counting section of the library the focus of the story isn't really on counting. The story itself didn't really go anywhere.....after reading it, my husband and I looked at each other and said, "that's it?!" However, the illustrations are cute and somewhat silly and had my son laughing out loud.
Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
