In Gregory’s Shadow by Don Freeman, Gregory the groundhog keeps his Shadow close by to help him feel brave when he is shy. When Gregory and Shadow go to find food one day, Shadow gets left outside! Shadow and Gregory are both lonely and look everywhere for one another. What makes the situation even more scary is that tomorrow is Groundhog Day, and all the farmers will be waiting to see whether or not Gregory has Shadow with him. This whimsical book about a groundhog and his shadow is accompanied by loosely-drawn illustrations that perfectly mimic the whimsical nature of the story.
