What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Phyllis is not like other groundhogs. She loves to splash in the cold river in springtime, roast in the summer sun, and tromp through the winter snow. Every kind of weather makes Phyllis happy.

This year on February 2, Phyllis is excited because she can feel that an early spring is in the air. But how will she ever get old Uncle Phil out of bed to make his official Punxsutawney Phil Groundhog Day prediction?
