Norwich Evening News Praise for 'Russell the Sheep': 'Russell the Sheep is completely engaging and bound to become a star of the future.' The Bookseller 'This is the delicious tale of a sheep who can't sleep.' Daily Express --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am a first grade teacher and my students love Splat. The illustrations are engaging and adorable. Each time we read it the kids find something new in the illustration that they had not noticed before. Splat also encounters problems that children can relate to. They have many of the same fears that Splat has in Scotton's books. Not only have I used the Splat books for pure pleasure, but for reading response, giving students an opportunity to relate to the experiences Splat has.

We are big Splat the Cat fans and have many of the books. I tend to like those authored by Rob Scotton more than the "I Can Read" books authored by the publisher, but this one is not a favorite. There are words used in this book that I change, like calling someone a "loser" when other words could easily have been substituted (last one to the other side of the pool is a "loser" could easily have been "rotten egg" or something of that ilk). Not sure why an author of children's books or an editor of children's books would use words like that. Its unecessary for the story.

I didn't buy this book on Amazon, but I felt compelled to come post a review about it anyway. I read to my son a lot and he likes to read his favorites about a million times over, so it's important we find books we can both enjoy. My 4yo likes this one. However, I find the book intolerable.

First of all, the antagonist (Spike) frequently calls Splat a "loser," which isn't a word my son needs to know about yet. That's not as bad as Splat himself, who spends most of the book complaining about baths/pools and resisting all attempts to get him in water. He's a whiny, miserable character who refuses to participate at school. Kids at this age mimic everything, and I just don't want my kids mimicking these kinds of behaviors. It's also just not very well written. The story is odd and meandering. There's no flow to the words.

As with all of the Splat books, the art is great. I love the style. My son also loves cats, so he enjoys all the kitty characters and Splat's kinky tail. Other Splat books are great and I'd recommend them - but seriously, just skip this one. It's not as good.

Splat is not having a good day. First, his mom wakes him up in the middle of a candy fish dream. Then she tells him that his arch-nemesis Spike is coming over after school. Oh, and swim lessons start today. But as almost any cat will tell you, water is horrible and scary and wet. The day keeps getting worse and worse. How will Splat handle it all?

This is a cute story, but for whatever reason I didn't think it was as great as some of author/illustrator Rob Scatton's earlier books like SPLAT THE CAT; LOVE, SPLAT; and MERRY CHRISTMAS, SPLAT. Young fans will probably enjoy the story, but if you are new to the series, you are probably better off choosing a different book.

Pictures were great but story wording left something to be desired. Not sure I would purchase other books by this author.

My third grade students love to read Splat books. It is at a level they can read without any help and enjoy the pictures. They gave this book a nice thumbs up rating the book 4-5 stars. I give it a nice 4 stars. It is great for younger children also. Love the art work. The pictures are fun to discuss as well as the story leading to a discussion on how to get along with others, fears, and doing the right thing.

My three year old daughter loves Splat, and this book is a summer time hit. The story is simple enough for a toddler to follow, and it can help to teach your child some good "lessons" -promoting discussion about trying new things, making friends and sharing. The illustrations are great too, and my daughter really enjoys looking for those silly ducks in every Splat book.

Having seen Splat the Cats popularity here on Amazon, this was the first book of his we bought. I think it is just terrible. The story and the wording doesn't "flow" from one part of Splat's day to the next. Maybe it is supposed to be this way, but the sentences leave you tongue tied and tripping over the words constantly. Personally, I find that rather annoying... especially since the author doesn't use rhyming in the traditional way. Still giving it two stars as it is a book my son likes me to read to him.... since he is two, I find myself making up my own story for splat as we go along instead of reading the actual story.
