Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton

Russell the SheepIn Russell the Sheep, written and illustrated by Rob Scotton, Russel can't get to sleep so he decides to try counting things.  The text and pictures are hilarious.  Anna and I both loved it!

On Rob Scotton's website you can check out some sample pages of Russell the Sheep and you can learn more about how the idea for the book developed on a page titled The Beginning, Middle, and End of Russell the Sheep.  You can also watch a sketch of Russell take form on a page titled Russell Quickdraw.

This is the second book that I've featured by Rob Scotton, the first being Splat the Cat: Where's the Easter Bunny.  Russell the Sheep is definitely our favourite of the two.
