Geoffrey Groundhog Predicts the Weather Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geoffrey Groundhog is famous for predicting how long winter will last, and each February 2, everyone waits to hear what he has to say when he emerges to look for his shadow. But as his fame grows, so does the commotion surrounding his burrow. Finally, one February things get so bad that when Geoffrey makes his appearance he can't even see the ground, much less his shadow, because of all the lights, reporters, and cameras. How's anyone to know when spring will arrive? Predicting the weather isn't easy, not even for a groundhog. Readers will laugh aloud at Geoffrey's clever solution to his predicament.

Synopsis:

Geoffrey Groundhog has become a local celebrity for successfully predicting how long winter will last. Everyone awaits his prediction each February 2, when he emerges from his burrow to look for his shadow. But Geoffrey's fame has grown out of control - and so has the commotion surrounding his burrow! With television lights and cameras crowding him, he can't even see the ground, much less his shadow. How will he make his spring prediction? How will anyone know if they should wax their surfboards or their skis?

Synopsis:

Predicting the weather isn't always easy--even for a groundhog. Readers will laugh aloud at Geoffrey Groundhog's clever solution to his predicament, when his fame makes seeing his shadow a problem.
