Minnie and Moo Go to the Moon (Minnie and Moo Series)

( 4 )

Overview

Cazet Minnie and Moo are cows, best friends, and the drollest duo to come along since Frog and Toad. "We could do that," says Moo to Minnie, as they watch the farmer quit work and hang his hat on a nail. "Do what?" Minnie asks. "Drive that tractor," says Moo, ever the dreamer. "I have been thinking. What does the farmer have that we do not?" "Hands and feet," says Minnie, ever practical. "No," says Moo. "Boots and a hat." And buoyed by that undeniable logic, the two set off on a drive that they believe takes them...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Staying out till the cows come home takes on a whole new meaning in the first of Cazet's (Never Spit on Your Shoes) spunky new chapter books, especially when it's the cows who are boogying late into the night. Minnie and Moo are best bovine pals living a comfortable life on a placid farm. One night, when the farmer throws a party, Minnie and Moo don dresses and wigs from an old trunk and make a grand, upright entrance at the humans' shindig. The hilarious denouement has the heifers escaping the advances of two burly men and rescuing a plate of hamburgers, which they mistake for the remains of their friends the Holsteins. In the second adventure, Minnie and Moo Go to the Moon, the pair take a clandestine joyride on the farmer's tractor, accelerating so high off the ground they think they've landed on the moon when they finally crash. A scene in which the cows imitate the farmer's method of cursing and kicking the tractor to get it started is laugh-out-loud funny. Cazet's snappy text contains equal parts silliness and true emotion. Minnie and Moo may not be the brightest cows in the barn, but they are loyal, caring and optimistic. The brief chapters and exuberant pencil-and-watercolor artwork on nearly every page encourage beginning readers to moo-ve along at a confidence-building pace--udderly likeable. Ages 6-8. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Wacky illustrations and wildly silly characters come together in this new series about two cow pals, Minnie and Moo. The bovine confusions occur when Minnie and Moo attempt human behaviors. Here, they start the farmer's tractor with the magic words they hear him utter: "You Cheesy Piece of Junk! You Broken-down, No-good, rusty bucket of bolts!" Cazet has discovered how to put slapstick in a book...and that's a trick! When a child begins to read there is a wonderful window of opportunity. Experiences that happen in these tender times may help a child make a decision about whether he or she will become someone hooked on reading for life.
Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Moo's been thinking again, even if it's "only a small think." That, we speedily learn, generally means trouble. Moo is breaking out of her cow image with boots and hat-and means to drive a tractor. Boots and hat being essential to the above activity. A little bit of hijacking, and the cow-girls are on their way. Er, almost. Here's an easy reader format with an edge, for the 90s generation. Minnie and Moo are a duo to reckon with.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Moo has figured out how to drive the farmer's tractor in this very funny and punny adventure. She tells Minnie, her accomplice, all they need are the farmer's hat and boots. Minnie remembers that as they turn the key they must say the magic words, "You cheesy piece of junk. You broken-down, no-good rusty bucket of bolts," to get it to start. After running over the pigs in the pigsty and the chickens in the chicken coop, they land on what they think is the moon. Their stay is cut short by "moonsters," really featherless chickens that peck them. The tractor with the attached hay baler lands in the duck pond with the cows fleeing to a field of grass just as the farmer comes on the scene. Only the boot on Moo's hoof gives them away. The female narrator's expressive voice brings the two characters to life, and her pacing helps set the action. Numerous sound effects of animals and machinery and the bluegrass style music that begins and ends each chapter add to the overall effect. While the humor does rely on the stereotype of dumb farm animals, the story's silliness mixed with the seriousness of the two characters as they try to think their way through the problems will overcome this stereotype. Individuals or groups of students will enjoy listening to this as they learn to read along with the text; groups that are too large at these grade levels may let the silliness get them off task. Both school and public libraries will find a demand for this package by teachers and parents.-Ann West LaPrise, Huron School District, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Horn Book
In this laugh-a-minute, unbridled demolition derby of an easy reader, Minnie and Moo, the bovine Thelma and Louise, decide to take the farmer's tractor for a joyride. After they kick the tires, turn the key, and say the "magic words" ("YOU CHEESY PIECE OF JUNK! YOU BROKEN-DOWN, NO-GOOD RUSTY BUCKET OF BOLTS!"), the tractor roars into life, and Minnie and Moo wreak havoc all over the farm, crashing into the pigpen, the chicken coop, and finally the duck pond. Cazet uses many types of humor in his brief text-wordplay (as they crash into the pigpen: '"Duck,' Minnie shouted. A pig whizzed by. 'That was no duck,' shouted Moo"), slapstick (obviously), and character-driven humor (when Moo suggests that they could try driving the tractor: '"Oh, Moo, Moo,' said Minnie. 'You have been thinking again'"). In the end, they see the farmer coming and jump back into their pasture. '"Quick,' said Moo. 'Get down!' 'Eat some grass!'" said Minnie. It's pure fun from start to finish, and there's even a nod to Minarik's Little Bear: after the tractor flies into the air and crashes, making a "crater" in the ground, Minnie and Moo decide they must be on the moon. In a companion book, Minnie and Moo Go Dancing, the humor is a little off-slightly distasteful, even-as Minnie and Moo dress up in women's clothing and crash the farmer's party, only to be lusted after by the unsavory DePew brothers and offered hamburgers to eat. But the first title has no such problems; it really puts the pedal to the metal.
