Aladdin  June 2018 - Illustrated by Daniel Duncan

All of Russell's relatives are Big, Strong WRESTLERS and they're all coming over for a family reunion.  In the face of Herculean Handshakes and Humongous Hugs, Russell finds that quick and clever can handle big and strong any day of the week.

Good News!  RUSSELL WRESTLES THE RELATIVES was re-released in paperback on August 9, 2020!

Russell Wrestles the Relatives book cover

Johnson’s jokey juxtaposition of family togetherness and pro-wrestling silliness will strike both a chord and a funny bone for little listeners. - Kirkus Reviews
