From the Back Cover:

It's the second day of February. Snow covers the field and the wind blows cold, but the Groundhog has a job to do. Will spring be early? Or will spring be late?

When the Groundhog doesn't see his shadow, it's clear spring will be here soon. But wait! Is that a red flower sticking through the snow? "Spring is here now!" is the best prediction the Groundhog has ever made!

All the Groundhog's friends rejoice . . . except one. Will one grouch turn spring back into winter?

First published in 1959, this humorous tale from the creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon reminds us that sometimes it doesn't matter what you're celebrating as much as who you're celebrating with.

About the Author:

Crockett Johnson was born in New York and spent his childhood on Long Island. He acquired his art education at New York University and at Cooper Union.

For many years the author and illustrator of the popular comic strip Barnaby, Mr. Johnson also illustrated many wonderful children's books, including Ruth Krauss's The Carrot Seed. He is perhaps best remembered for his own slyly engaging books about a small boy named Harold and his journeys with a purple crayon.
