Summary
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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "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 created just that. When Brownie Groundhog leaves friends Bunny and the fox for her winter's nap, the fox feels cold, sad, and bored. On impulse, he decides to borrow Brownie's scarf (disturbing her more than once) and gets an idea that grows into a surprise. Children will enjoy Bunny's translations of Brownie's sleepy remarks (Beaky white, yam slippy! Doony dizzer! means Be quiet, I'm sleeping! Do not disturb!). Segovia'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. Although readers may wonder why Bunny is individualized and fox is always the fox, this is a good choice for a winter storytime without any religious or cultural connotations.--Ching, Edie Copyright 2010 Booklist"
