Here is the blurb from Amazon:
Phyllis can't convince Uncle Phil to get out of bed to make his prediction on Groundhog Day. When Uncle Phil realizes he has missed all the signs of an early spring, he knows it's time to retire and pass on the title of Punxsutawney Phil. Only this time, it's Punxsutawney Phyllis!
Loved it! Phyllis is so much fun! I bought this for my daughter for Christmas and she loves it! Phyllis is willing to get things done and doesn't have to go with the norm. One of my favorite character traits! Your kids are sure to love Phyllis. I'm getting "April Fool, Phyllis" for them for April Fools Day! Perfect timing, right? I can't get enough of this fun character and I hope Susanna has more adventures for her in the future.
1. Is Groundhogs Day your favorite holiday, or do you perhaps like another holiday better?
Yes, Groundhog Day is my favorite! My birthday (February 3) and April Fools Day are fun too, but nothing beats the day I get to tell everyone whether there will be six more weeks of winter or an early spring. I always hope for early spring, but it doesn't happen very often!
2. Don't you think we should do more to celebrate Groundhogs Day? What do you think the celebration should consist of?
Groundhog Day should be a National Holiday so that there's no school. We should have a parade with sledding and hot chocolate afterwards. Maybe I should also be president for that day... or Queen!
3. What does your Uncle Phil do, now that he doesn't have to wake so early every February 2nd?
He sleeps a LOT! I don't know how anyone can sleep that much! He also does a lot of sudoku puzzles, which are fun for a while, but really, he should get out more!
4. Tell us something special about yourself that we might not know yet.
I am an exceptional singer. Really. You should hear me. I have two songs about Groundhog Day that I made up myself, and when I sing them, the kids look amazed. Sometimes they laugh (I'm pretty sure it's with joy.) If I wasn't already pretty busy being in charge of weather prediction, I could be an opera singer or any kind of singer, really! Maybe Broadway might need a singing Groundhog. I could star in my own musical - Punxsutawney Phyllis! Hey! That's a great idea! Do you know any Broadway producers who could get that going? Will you come to opening night?
Ah! Don't you just love Phyllis! She's wonderful, right? I certainly think so.
