“Jolly Time Books: Punxsutawney Phil and His Jealous Brother Gary

Gary grew jealous of the attention brother Phil got
because Phil was famous—and Gary was not.
Phil was a living legend on every TV channel—
while Gary stayed in bed in his warm PJs made of flannel.”

“Reviews of Jolly Time Books:
***** POSITIVE MESSAGE AND GREAT FOR PRESCHOOLERS
I really enjoyed reading this to the preschool age children at my mom's daycare. Jolly Time Books send positive messages to our youngsters and gives them experience on situations they will encounter in their daily lives. (Michael Smith)

***** SHORT, VALUABLE AND FUN
Chekhov use to say that conciseness is the sister of talent. The authors of this book have taken a widely known page of history and transformed it in a story that imparts profound values in few words and in a tone so light is fun for kids. (Rosa Lopez)”

But nonetheless, he has never given up—and he knows he never will.
Gary was jealous because of all the attention Phil got.
No other groundhogs were as famous as Phil. No sir, they were not.
