10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Carole Bonney on 27 Oct 2007
Format: Hardcover
A highly inventive take on a traditional story, which will further endear Russell to children from 4 to 44. Beautifully illustrated, evocative moonlit pages bring Christmas Eve to life. After Santas crash-landing sleigh ruins Russells carefully decorated tree, the indomitable
Russell goes to investigate, comes to Santas rescue and saves Christmas. He is rewarded with a special bauble which re-ignites the lanterns on his christmas tree. It's delightful! A'Night Before Christmas' with a modern twist. Already a firm favourite with my 6 year old, it will be one to keep and treasure as part of our family Christmas tradition!

Format: Paperback
Rob Scotton (and Russell!) strike gold with this third book in this delightful series. The attention to detail in the vivid, atmospheric illustrations and the kaleidoscope of colour, is nothing but a masterclass in young children's literature. I particularly enjoyed Mr.Scotton's excellent use of language: carefully constructed, skilfully employed. A simply gourgeous and lovingly presented book. Do yourself a favour and buy it!

Format: Hardcover
We already have the other 'Russell the sheep' stories and were very happy to find that Rob Scotton has created one for Christmas. The book is an abolute gem and is even better than all the others!
My 'little' readers are aged 7, 6 & 3 and were delighted with the book. After 'my' presentation of the story, each of them wanted to scuttle away privately with their neat 'hand' sized book to study the illustrations. My 3 year old loves to trace with his finger the clever positioning of the illustrations & text on the pages - the spiral of Russells night cap, the different sizes of text....The others are fascinated with the facial expressions of the characters & the colours and atmosphere that create a truly magical christmas story.
For me, I now await for the animated short story production of the collection....

I ordered this book for my daughter Ella after she so loved the previous Russell the Sheep books so much. I thought I would get this one ready for the Christmas build up. As soon as Ella spotted the book she was captivated by the magical story and the beautiful illustrations and we are presently having to read the story every night!!I would highly recommend this book for children everywhere - another fabulous Russell story!

Look out for Russell's froggy friend on every page as well. My daughter loves to find where he's hiding.

Format: Paperback
My son and I LOVE Russell the sheep! This story is so simple but beautiful and the illustrations are truly captivating. My son is very selective over what books he likes and does not and enjoys using Russells very long stripy hat to interact with the story telling.

Definately one of the best childrens books.
