Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Gregory and Greta squabble over everything. Their constant bickering is apparently regarded as endearing, as the adults smile indulgently while the twin groundhogs pull at ears and tails, fighting over the last piece of pie. "'Double trouble,' said Grannie Groundhog with a smile." Grampie Groundhog, who appears to be having a glass of red wine, then announces that he is retiring and will be passing his spring-forecasting job down to one of the twins, who immediately begin to fight over it. Both siblings are only interested in the fame the job will bring ("I'll be in all the newspapers!" "I'll be on TV!"). Apparently qualifications aren't relevant, as Grampie decides between the children by drawing straws. Gregory wins and gloats, Greta loses and sulks, and the fight that ensues is once again greeted with indulgent smiles from the adults. Gregory sleepwalks during the winter, and, on February 2, he finds that he has misplaced his glasses and will not be able to see his shadow. Greta comes to his rescue. The two realize that they make a good team, then return to the ear tweaking and tail pulling. Their family may love them—but most children will find them unpleasant. Cauley's watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations depict a cozy groundhog world, but its denizens are neither interesting nor memorable. For a good Groundhog Day tale, try Pamela Curtis Swallow's Groundhog Gets a Say (Putnam, 2005) and for the supreme teamwork tale, nothing beats Peggy Rathman's Officer Buckle and Gloria (Putnam, 1995).—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

Review

“Cauley's watercolor-and-colored pencil illustrations have a classic feel to them, featuring amber-hued, cozy home scenes that neatly complement the tale and capture the twins' antics with a keen and comical precision. The happy resolution of the story provides a satisfying conclusion and with its simple explanation of Groundhog Day, this warm-hearted tale offers readers an entertaining introduction to an annual event.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Cauley's watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations depict a cozy groundhog world.” ―School Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
A charming Groundhog Day story that you won’t tire of reading to the young ones in your life. Kids will love these twins and their typical childish antics. The additional illustrations inside the hard covers add to the fun.

Kudos to the illustrator for the delightful personalities of each of the groundhogs…and for even having one of the “stars” wear glasses …and lose them.

_Hope Irvin Marston, author of EYE ON THE IDITAROD: AISLING’S QUEST

This is a sweet book! My daughter loved the illustrations and imagined being part of the family. The siblings may fight and bother each other (normal kids stuff) but they still love each other and help one another on the all important Groundhog Day. It's a good message.
