Russell the Sheep

Russell the Sheep

by Rob Scotton Illustrated by Rob Scotton
This is Russell. Sometimes Russell is just a little bit out of step with the rest of the flock. All the sheep are falling asleep — except Russell.

What's a sheep to do? Russell tries everything . . . until, at last, he falls asleep.

With a distinctive humor and style, Scotton introduces a sheep with a "baaaad" case of insomnia, until he discovers the one thing he needs to count to get to sleep.
