Editorial Reviews

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

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. In this sequel to Russell the Sheep (2005), the sheep in the long, knitted nightcap happens upon a treasure map. After inventing an odd, mechanical treasure-seeking device, he searches high, low, in, out, over, under, left, and right before discovering a treasure chest filled with a disappointing lode of apparent junk. But the old camera he finds inspires him to snap pictures of his relatives and friends, and the photo album he creates becomes his unexpected fortune. The artwork features dynamic paintings of Russell and the other denizens of Frogsbottom engaged in bits of comic byplay, and the muted colors darken as night falls, adding a classic bedtime-book look. Instantly recognizable, and lovable in his wholehearted approach to whatever he undertakes, Russell is childlike in the best sense. Children will enjoy his exaggerated antics and expressions, as well as the final affirmation that his album of family and friends is the "best treasure ever." Carolyn Phelan

By E. R. Bird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on April 27, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I wouldn't bring this up, but has it occurred to anyone else that the American picture book market is currently undergoing a virtual flood of high-quality British manuscripts? Consider the facts of the matter. Just last year we had Rob Scotton's nicely droll and shockingly well-publicized, "Russell the Sheep". This year there is yet another book (in addition to fellow British imports, "I'm Not Cute" by Jonathan Allen and "The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon" by Mini Grey) added to the Russell oevre: "Russell and the Lost Treasure". It's hard to resist. Kids like-a the treasure. I think that's where half of the fascination with pirates comes from. Plus you have an already established likable hero and a droll little story to boot. Like its predecessor, "Lost Treasure" isn't going to garner itself any hoity-toity awards this year, but that doesn't stop it from being a perfectly nice and perfectly readable little bundle of joy.

When we last left our hero... he was asleep. Now he is not. Russell is just casually perfecting a rather nice triple somersault when something catches his eye. A crow, clutching The Lost Treasure of Frogsbottom (torn virtually to shreds) passes by and gives Russell ideas. But rather than wrangle the map from the crow (who is never seen again) our sheepish hero and his frog partner Frankie are going to find the treasure themselves. Russell creates a high-tech well-detailed "Super-Duper Treasure Seeker" complete with all-terrain wheels, a flange, and even a well-positioned extending arm. At first it seems as if all is lost and the treasure will never be found, but at the foot of a giant tree the machine begins to beep. Lo and behold, far beneath the tree is a treasure chest of... a bunch of useless stuff.

Love the original Russell the Sheep book and was hoping this would be as good. Not so. The title is a little decieving, there's no real treasure hunt or anything pirate-like. My son loves the original but has never asked to re-read this one. The illustrations are really cute though, just like the original.

I fell in love with the first Russell book (Russell the Sheep). These books are amazing. The wording is hilarious! The pictures are wonderful. I was so happy to see that there was going to be a new Russell book. The Lost Treasure was adorable. I loved the message that was presented and the "real" treasure that Russell found. My girls (ages 6 and 4 1/2) love the books. They are wonderful for family reading time.

Marvelous illustrations, heart-warming story. It quickly became a favorite of my young son, who is 2 1/2.

We like this book well enough. The illustrations are top notch--somewhat similar to Wallace and Gromit. My son loves to trace Russell's long hat all over the page. I'm not sure my children like the story line of this book as much as they like Russell the Sheep. It seems to be missing something but I can't pinpoint what that "something" is. Maybe the story is less ironic than the first or perhaps the lack of Pirates (despite the reference to treasure) make it less appealing to my little ones. I suggest you check out Russell the Sheep first and save this book for later.

A beautifully illustrated book that held my niece spellbound. The rich artwork and humor also make it a pleasure for any adults who get to read this as a bedtime story. What I like about the Russell series is the little lesson for the kids, in each story. This time, we see Russell learn what is truly valuable in life. At the end of the story, instead of arguing about bedtime, my niece wanted to see our family photo album! We had a `quality' moment that followed directly from storytime and because of that, I had to come write a glowing review!!! Hope some of you have a similar wonderful experience.

My 3-year-old boy just doesn't like it. Maybe in a year or so . . . but for now, the story can't hold his interest. His attention ends as soon as the treasure's found. Maybe if the photos Russell takes were less old-fashioned . . . but that's probably the appeal for some readers. My son just doesn't get them, and I don't think most small children would. He loves Russell the Sheep and Russell's Christmas Magic, however. As always, the illustrations are wonderful.

You have seen Rob Scotton's work in a wide variety of places--what a pleasure to see him illustrating children's books. Light and zany, you can't help but be charmed by Scotton's characters. The story is short and simple, especially appealing for young readers or listeners, ages 3-5. The illustrations are so good, however, that you wish there was more story to necessitate more pages in the book.
