Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The two crazy cows are at it again. This time they are planning to give the farmer a birthday present--one of Minnie’s cream puffs. They encounter a real mess when the chickens and sheep run into each other, but Moo suddenly has a bight idea. She will not only untangle the sheep and free Elvis the rooster, she will make a present for the farmer. Grabbing her knitting needles, Moo sets to work, but somehow the sweater just does not look right. It has a big lump and one sleeve is bigger than the other. What they do to make it the right size will give a chuckle, and how the farmer and his wife continue the craziness makes for amusing pictures and story. Readers know that the sweater is not haunted and they also know who is causing the problem, so it will make them feel very clever that they have figured out the story. Of course, Cazet saves the final joke for last. Part of the “I Can Read!” series level 3 for kids reading alone who can handle complex plots with confidence. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Gr 1-2
Chickens and sheep collide in a tangle of wool and feathers and pull readers into an outlandishly hilarious romp as two unconventional cows prepare a surprise for the farmer's birthday. Minnie is giving the farmer her last cream puff (left, so he can't miss it, in his slipper). Moo decides to knit a sweater, a very special sweater, but washing it reveals that it can both sneeze and talk. While both of them ignore the fact that Elvis the Rooster is missing and conclude that the sweater must be haunted, all attempts to control it and "teaching it a lesson" allow readers to laugh at their ignorance and the resulting calamity for Elvis. Cazet's colorful pen and watercolor cartoons faithfully build on the text. Nonstop action and a clever plot place this title at the top of the list for young readers ready for a slightly more complex story.

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.
