What happens when a sheep can’t sleep? That’s the question in Rob Scotton’s adorably winsome first picture book about a woolly insomniac named Russell, who tries everything to fall asleep. Captured in Scotton’s humorous, playful illustrations, Russell finds that counting his feet and the stars doesn’t work...until he thinks of a plan that does the trick. If you’re looking for a bedtime book with sweet-natured laughs and a memorable character, this is a surefire treat.

Oh my goodness, the love of reading has blossomed in my three year old after reading Russell the Sheep for the first time. Now, he wont go to sleep without me reading this book to him first, he even joins in, his favorite page is where Russell counts the stars one..two..three..four..five..six hundred million billion and ten...my son's NEW favorite number This is a crowd pleaser folks, I am going to buy the sequel and Russell's Christmas book too.

We liked it. It wasn't the automated version I was expecting and on my Nook Color it's hard to really appreciate the illustrations, but it's well done.

What a sweet and fun story. The entire Russell the sheep series is a delight. Even though my daughter is under 2, she enjoys the illustrations. I know she'll continue to delight in it as she gets older.

This sheep can't sleep, so he starts counting things. But it doesn't work, and it doesn't work. At last, he hits on the perfect solution! The illustrations are adorable, and the story is perfect for bedtime.

I was looking for a children's book about a sheep for my as yet unborn child, and this one is perfect. The illustrations are great and the story is charming. I know my daughter will love it. :)
