Description - Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox by Susan Blackaby
Happy Groundhog Day! But when Brownie steps outside, there's no sign of spring-just her shadow, a frosty field, and a hungry fox who wants her for lunch. She 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. Susan Blackaby's witty writing and Carmen Segovia's adorable animals combine for a picture book filled with springtime joy.

Author Biography - Susan Blackaby
Susan Blackaby's first picture book, Rembrandt's Hat, was praised by Publishers Weekly as a "satisfyingly spontaneous and quirky tale...simply 'fedorable.'" Susan is also the author of Sterling Biographies(R) Cleopatra--which "leaves readers fascinated and eager to learn more" (School Library Journal)--and a poetry collection, Nest, Nook, and Cranny. Susan lives in Portland, Oregon. About the IllustratorCarmen Segovia is an award-winning illustrator who lives in Barcelona, Spain. One winter, she chose to sketch a little groundhog that wakes before spring and passes the time by sliding down a snowy hill, and building a "snow friend." The paintings were selected for the Bologna Children's Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition where Carmen's American editor became determined to create a book starring the groundhog. Carmen's first picture book in the US was China Doll, by Elza Pilgrim.
