This is a story about groundhog waking up on February 2, disappointed to see that it will be 6 more weeks of winter. A fox comes along and asks if it is spring yet. Groundhog says the fox will have to wait. The rest of the story is about the fox wanting to eat the groundhog, but having to wait- first for lunch, then groundhog distracts him with ice skating, then since the fox missed lunch, he has to wait for dinner. A cute story about the fox being tricked but the groundhog turning back to help. The illustrations are in a dark gray in rust color, but perfectly match the mood. I love when fox uses his tail to sweep the snow off the ice. This is one I will purchase for the library. I may even read it for Groundhog day to kindergarten..... if I buy my own copy now.
