The Lovereading4Kids comment

From the same Sheep that made his debut back in 2005, Russell is here for a pure snowy holiday treat. Complete with a book and CD readers won’t be disappointed as Russell sets about repairing Santa’s sleigh before Christmas has to be cancelled. An engaging and often amusing story.


Russell's Christmas Magic by Rob Scotton

When Santa and his broken sleigh are stranded in Firefly Wood, Sanya is sure that Christmas will have to be cancelled. That is, until Russell the Sheep comes to the rescue! With a clatter and a bang, Russell shows that hard work and a little imagination can make a magic that is all his own.


‘Russell the Sheep is completely engaging and bound to become a star of the future.’ The Bookseller

‘This is the delicious tale of a sheep who can’t sleep.’ Daily Express
