Minnie and Moo Go Dancing (Minnie and Moo Series)by Denys Cazet, DK Publishing
Once again, Moo is thinking: "I wish for a nice pair of thumbs." This simple yet far-fetched longing leads the two bovine friends amusingly to the magic of frilly dresses, hair color, eye shadow-and dancing. At the farmer's house they, in their party togs, are mistaken for Opal and Ruby, the farmer's twin sisters from California. "You gals sure know how to hoof it!" says one of their human dance partners. But when hamburgers are served, Moo and Minnie are struck suddenly by their own connection to beef. "We could be next on the grill," says Minnie. "Run for it!".

My first grader was overjoyed with this book. After reading the book straight through (so I had time to actually cook, which could earn a book a full count of stars right there) he marched into the kitchen and insisted, "I bet you thought this was going to be a simple story, but it's not." Indeed, after all of Minnie and Moo's more extraordinary adventures: going to the moon, saving the earth, robbing banks, etc., I wasn't expecting too much from just a little dancing. However, "Minnie and Moo Go Dancing" offered a compelling story of facing mortality, one's obligation to society, some basic rules of attraction between men and women, misperception, superstition and the true magic that is friendship. Also, it is funny!
