Praise For Double Trouble Groundhog Day

“Cauley’s watercolor-and-colored pencil illustrations have a classic feel to them, featuring amber-hued, cozy home scenes that neatly complement the tale and capture the twins’ antics with a keen and comical precision. The happy resolution of the story provides a satisfying conclusion and with its simple explanation of Groundhog Day, this warm-hearted tale offers readers an entertaining introduction to an annual event.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Cauley’s watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations depict a cozy groundhog world.”—School Library Journal
