Russell the Sheep Review

Featured Books for 3+ readers

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.
