Double Trouble Groundhog Day

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Lorinda Bryan Cauley. Twins Greta and Gregory draw straws for Grampie Groundhog's "family forecasting job." When Gregory, the winner, has nervous nightmares and misplaces his glasses while sleepwalking, Greta must help him predict spring after all. The conclusion lauds cooperation, but it's not hard to see that the conflict could have been avoided altogether. Watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations are warm but bland.
