Editorial Reviews

PublishersWeekly (starred review of MINNIE AND MOO GO TO THE MOON and MINNIE AND MOO GO DANCING)
“Brief chapters and exubertant pencil-and-watercolor artwork [make these books] udderly likable”

“These gleeful fantasies are currently the cream of the begining reader crop.”
Children's Literature
This laid back pair of bovines have another crazy adventure. This time a spaceship lands right in their pasture. It is a space creature who looks a lot like a potato, but he only has one eye. It appears that he is a UPS (Universal Package Service) deliveryman who lost his way while delivering Anti Bump Cream, something used to keep the planets from smashing into each other. Mr. UPS, or Speed, as he is named, needs to get a new spaceship and be off in 30 minutes. As it turns out, the fuel he needs is moo-juice (milk) and it has to have a very high fat content. Minnie is the one. The story is full of puns and references that will go right over the heads of kid readers, but will give the adult reader a few chuckles. Another "amoosing" adventure featuring this cow duo and their farmyard friends that kids will drink right up. 2002, HarperCollins,

PreS-Gr 3-Things on the farm get exciting when an alien, resembling a one-eyed potato, crash lands his spaceship in front of Minnie and Moo in this beginning reader by Denys Cazet (HarperCollins, 2002). Spud is from Planet X and finds himself in trouble when he stops for donuts instead of completing his important delivery for the Universal Package Service (UPS). With only a half hour left to get the Anti-Bump Cream delivered before the planets begin bumping into each other, it is up to Minnie and Moo to help Spud get on his way. The space fuel needed is milk, and Minnie comes to the rescue. Occasional, subtle sound effects add to the flavor of the story. Narrator Barbara Caruso does a great job of creating a personality for each character through slight changes in tone and accent, while maintaining a pace that conveys the race against time but doesn't rush the story so youngsters can read along. The audio portion includes clear page-turn signals. An excellent addition to collections for beginning readers.-Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Cazet's cows are back (Minnie and Moo Meet Frankenswine, 2001, etc.), charming as ever, in an easy reader that is as loopy as ever. Minnie and Moo are soaking in the summer sun when a spaceship plows into the adjacent field. At first they think it might be a new type of tractor, but then the pilot, a one-eyed potato with green bristles whose name is Spud, pops out. Spud tells them the alarming news that he is in the process—after stopping for donuts and then getting lost—of delivering some anti-bump cream to prevent the planets from bumping themselves to bits. Now he needs to repair his spaceship and secure some space fuel. Repairing the rocket is no sweat—Minnie and Moo let Spud cannibalize their farm tractor for parts; they know it has the necessaries because they took the tractor to the Moon on a previous adventure. But the space fuel, that's a tickler, until Minnie has a brainstorm: Could Milk be space fuel? Yes, cries Spud, though it must have high-cream content. Minnie's the cow to deliver just such, which she does, demurely, as a barnyard chorus warbles "Home, Home on the Range." Spud blasts off and all is right in a bump-free solar system. Weird in all the right ways, from the strange little verbal asides to Minnie's mop of blond curls. Another mooover from Cazet. (Easy reader. 4-8)

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.

A Summer Day

Minnie and Moo lay in the tall grass. The sun was bright and hot. "I love summer," said Moo. "Mmm," said Minnie. She raised her chin to the sun. She rubbed on some lotion. "What's that?" asked Moo.
