Brownie Groundhog and the Wintry Surprise
Brownie Groundhog has two friends, Bunny and Fox. Brownie goes to sleep for the winter, but Fox is sad. He is bored and cold. He wants Brownie’s scarf. So he and Bunny go into Brownie’s bedroom while Brownie Groundhog is sleeping! Fox borrows Brownie’s scarf, and also lightbulbs that are Christmas things. Fox and Bunny got a lot of things, then they decorated the tree! Brownie woke up, and she was mad, but when she saw the tree she was so happy. Then they had a party and a feast. Then Brownie went back to sleep. I want to go to sleep like Brownie, and then wake up to have a party like Fox. I like the way they decorated the tree. It was really beautiful. It was rude that they kept waking up Brownie, but she liked it when she woke up for the party. I like the book, but I like the bunny best.
