Rob Scotton had only to look out of his studio window to find the inspiration for Russell. The rolling countryside surrounding his home is brimming with sheep, other wildlife, sheep, rural beauty, and more sheep. An honours graduate of Leicester Polytechnic, Rob now lives in Rutland, England, with his wife, Liz, who is also an artist.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1 Russell, the fluffed-out sheep with the impossibly long, striped wool hat attempts to discover the Lost Treasure of Frogsbottom. After inventing a Super-Duper Treasure Seeker, he searches high and low until he stumbles upon the buried chest down a long and winding hole. Once the box is opened, Russell is dismayed to find that it contains only old and useless stuff, including a camera that's older than my dad! But the camera works, and soon Russell is taking joyous snapshots of his extended family. In the conclusion, which might make more sense to adults than kids, Russell peruses these photos in an album and he decides that they are the real treasure. As in Russell the Sheep (HarperCollins, 2005), the art is done in muted blues, grays, and greens that contain small touches of humor for discerning readers. While not as strong a premise as in the original book, fans of Russell will welcome his return. Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI
