The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
What the judges said: A book that makes friends! Its limited colour palette works very well, particularly in its use of white. It also gives a great sense of texture – the sheeps’ fleeces really do look fluffy. It is actually more sophisticated than it first appears, working at different levels whilst providing something to laugh at on every page.
Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton
A quirky bedtime story, introducing endearing insomniac, Russell the Sheep. Sometimes Russell the Sheep is just a little bit out of step with the rest of flock. All the sheep are falling asleep - except Russell. He's tried everything...but he's still wide awake. What's a sheep to do?
'This is the delicious tale of a sheep who can't sleep.'
'This quirky bedtime story...will amuse and appeal to the very young.'
'Gorgeous, gently coloured illustrations...A perfect bedtime story.'
