Review:

"The acrylic paintings are inviting and the spread of the decorated tree is glorious. The ending of this tale of friendship is most satisfying. This book is a natural for a winter celebration that is not attached to Christmas." --School Library Journal "A hip design with lots of white space and appealing illustrations using a palette of cool hues complement the snappy dialogue and clever humor . . . Each animal has its own distinct look and personality: the grumpy groundhog, the dependent, determined fox, and the cheery, polite rabbit attuned to the feelings of others. Quirky, quiet, clever. Watch for more seasonal adventures from this tantalizing trio." --Kirkus Reviews "It's hard to find a winter-setting picture book with bright lights and trimmings, packages, and a feast that doesn't mention Christmas, but Blackaby has done just that . . . Segauia's acrylic paint-and-ink illustrations emphasize blue tones, suggesting a nip in the air, and the use of red and orange add warmth. The fox's chaotic antics also heat up the pages . . . this is a good choice for a winter storytime without any religious or cultural connotations." --Booklist

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(R) 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.
