Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Whimsical animal characters with names such as Godfrey Groundhog and Sherwood Squirrel populate this tale of the grinch-like Roland Raccoon's attempt to postpone the coming of spring. Ages 4-8. (Feb.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 When Godfrey Groundhog predicts at an autumn picnic that he won't see his shadow in early February, his animal friends are elated. But this jubilant announcement causes only despair for rascally ski lodge owner Roland Raccoon, and he decides to kidnap the unsuspecting groundhog. The woodchuck, however, is as enterprising as his ring-tailed captor. True to his animal nature, Godfrey chews through his imprisoning ropes and then burrows through the ground, with Roland hot on his trail. Emerging from below, Godfrey is happily reunited with his concerned cohorts who, in turn, capture the mischievous raccoon. A repentant Roland reveals his problem to the understanding quartet who propose that he open a hot dog stand on the beach. The brightly colored drawings extend the buoyancy, gentle humor, action, and warmth of the simple text. Children will be especially intrigued by the many scenes of life underground. Given the appeal to young children of this European-descended custom and its established place in the elementary school curriculum, this light-hearted romp with its tender message about friendship should be a welcome addition to holiday and general picture book collections.

    A great Title, but a poorly written story

    I would not recommend this book, I have only used it because there is not much out there on this great holiday. I am not happy with the flow of story or the language. I wish I could give it 0 star
