Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox...Review & Giveaway
Happy Groundhog Day! But when Brownie steps outside, there's not even the slightest sign of spring--just her shadow, a frosty field, and a hungry fox who wants to munch her for lunch. Determined not to become a meal, Brownie finds a clever and tasty way to melt the ice and turn Fox into a friend…and make the wait for winter's end a little warmer.
A&W really do love this book and so do I. All three of us are, like Brownie, ready for spring to be here so we can relate! My boys were transfixed by the idea of furry little Brownie being eaten by a naughty fox. They listened with great anticipation as Brownie found ways to tire out the fox (ice skating anyone??) so the fox would be too tired to eat him. I loved how Brownie even managed to befriend the fox...genius. I think it must be the power of hot cocoa and cinnamon toast that won over that naughty fox! The illustrations, done by Carmen Segovia are very well done as well and bring the characters right to live and manage to depict winter in an appealing way (even to this Northerner who is tired of snow!).
Just a note about the title....while it does talk about Groundhog Day this book is an excellent read for the entire (loooooong) winter season. Happy Reading. You can pick up a copy on Amazon today...
