Review:

Praise for "Brownie Groundhog and the February Fox""
"."..this story is particularly endearing. Children will find it delightful." --"School Library Journal" (starred review)"It is refreshing to find such a beautiful book for this oft-forgotten day of the year. Segovia's acrylic paints and inks elevate the simple-seeming story . . . Blackaby is as tricky as her heroine . . . delivering plenty of chuckles and wordplay. Elegant." --"Kirkus Reviews ""A promising bedtime selection for younger children." --"Publishers Weekly"

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.
