Brownie Groundhog and the Wintry Surprise


Brownie Groundhog and the Wintry Surprise Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kids will love this wintry-wonderful follow-up to the popular Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox.

Brownie is ready for a long winter's nap. “Just don't wake me up,” she warns. But her friends miss her so much that they can't bear to obey her orders — and they turn Brownie's “do not disturb” into a comic commotion, complete with a stunningly beautiful nighttime surprise. Susan Blackaby has created a fun romp filled with delightful wordplay, enhanced by Carmen Segovia's illustrations featuring splashes of color against a snowy backdrop.

About the Author

Susan Blackaby's first picture book, Rembrandt's Hat (Houghton Mifflin) was praised by Publishers Weekly as a “satisfyingly spontaneous and quirky tale . . . simply 'fedorable.'” Susan is also the author of Sterling Biographies®: Cleopatra—which “leaves readers fascinated and eager to learn more” (School Library Journal)-and a poetry collection, Nest, Nook, and Cranny (Charlesbridge Publishing). Susan lives in Portland, OR.

Carmen 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 (Sterling) by Elza Pilgrim.
