From the Publisher:
This is Russell.
Sometimes Russell is just a little bit out of step with the rest of the flock.
All the sheep are falling asleepexcept Russell.
What's a sheep to do?
Russell tries everything . . . until, at last, he falls asleep.
Good night, Russell!
Shaped like a big, fluffy pillow, Russell is a sheep with a serious sleeping problem. It seems that no matter what he does, he can't join the rest of his flock in a good night's slumber. Maybe it's his temperature? Off come his pjs, but polka-dotted boxers aren't warm enough. From changing position to counting millions and billions of stars, he's wide awake. Perhaps he needs to start counting something slightly more familiar? With bewitching, whimsical blue-toned paintings that are bursting with rolling hills, a nighttime sky, and enormous sheep atop teeny, tiny legs.
