Have you ever found yourself unable to fall asleep? I have, and on more than one occasion! Like most of us humans, Russell sure does the same.  In Frogsbottom Filed, an energetic Russell is restless. Trying desperately to go to sleep, he tosses and turns.


Young readers will be amused at the sight of Russell as he prances atop a tree while one sheep brushes its teeth; another practically falling asleep clutches a teddy bear, yet another lies under a quilt with its four feet straight up in the air. As the story progresses, Russell counts objects, fluffs his pillow, and even after he pulls the shade over his eyes, remains wide-awake!


Russell the Sheep is an adorable tale that is wonderfully illustrated with luxurious graphics bringing this character to life. Rob Scotton’s creation is sure to grab the hearts and imaginations of young and old alike!
