Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-These three books are a bit of a mixed bag. In Cazet's title, the bossy bird introduced in Elvis the Rooster Almost Goes to Heaven (HarperCollins, 2003) is forced into learning to say "please" and "thank you." Although the artwork is amusing, the story is confusing and the dialogue is difficult to follow. Expressions such as "Little Willie is busy.- He has a feather in every pie" will most likely perplex the intended audience. In Space Cat, a feline astronaut and his robot encounter some difficulty on their journey. The vocabulary is a bit challenging, and the comic drawings are primarily decorative. Overall, though, the book is an entertaining selection for more competent readers. In Ruby, a raccoon asks her friends, "What does it take to bake a cake?" She throws everything they suggest into the mix, including carrots, worms, flies, snails, and nuts. She bakes the terrible-smelling concoction, and when the friends sit down, they try their best to come up with nice things to say. Easy vocabulary and repetition make this a good choice for beginning readers, and the softly rendered pastel illustrations provide good picture clues. Skip Elvis, but add Ruby and Space Cat where books for beginning readers are in demand.-Melinda Piehler, Sawgrass Elementary School, Sunrise, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Elvis gets a pointed lesson in manners from coop-mates in his second solo outing. Swaggering beneath an oversized, pompadour-shaped wattle, he raps out commands to his harem, scorning his buddies' "please" and "thank you" when the hens serve breakfast. But his ego gets a double whammy when resplendent (and courteous) peacock Chick Gable passes through, turning all the ladies' heads; suddenly, Elvis is no longer the center of attention, and his brusque demands for breakfast are met with either nothing, or a few kernels of dry corn. Readers will get the message before Elvis does, but with a bit of prodding, even he comes around in the end. The expressively posed poultry in Cazet's cramped but colorful barnyard scenes add even more life and humor to this engaging episode; steer children who need a little more work-especially with table manners-to the Buehners' It's a Spoon, Not a Shovel! (1995) or Cuyler's Please Say Please (below). (Easy reader. 6-8)

Meet the Author

Denys Cazet is the author and illustrator of more than 25 picture books for children, including Never Spit On Your Shoes, winner of the California Young Readers Medal.

The books about Minnie and Moo are his first for beginning readers. He was inspired to tell stories about the silly cow best-friends when he passed a herd of cows in which all but two were facing the same way. The other two stood next to each other, facing in the opposite direction from the rest of the cows. He immediately dubbed the two nonconformists Minnie and Moo and imagined the adventures two cows who were loyal friends rather than followers of the herd. Mr. Cazet is currently writing I Can Read Books featuring Elvis the Rooster from the farm on which Minnie and Moo live.

Mr. Cazet was an elementary school teacher for 25 years, and has also been a school librarian and elementary school media specialist. He remains active in his local elementary school parent and advisory committees. A California native, Mr. Cazet lives with his family in the foothills of the Napa Valley.
