Editorial Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"These gleeful fantasies are currently the cream of the beginning reader crop."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
These gleeful fantasies are currently the cream of the beginning-reader crop.
Publishers Weekly
All the animals are running scared when a thunderstorm strikes the barnyard in Denys Cazet's Minnie and Moo Meet Frankenswine. The two courageous cows unmask the mystery of a reputed monster on the premises. This seventh book about Minnie and Moo, a series formerly published by DK Ink, joins the I Can Read books series. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Minnie and Moo are camping out under a tree when they are awakened by a crash of lightning and thunder. The animals all come racing out of the barn because there is some monster there. Suddenly it seems like the monster is now in the farmer's house-there doesn't seem to be any refuge. Well, there is no real monster, but the poor visiting pig Olga does receive a bit of a shock. There is a lot more to this amusing story-plenty of puns and references to other characters in stories and an ending that will surely bring smiles. One of the more amusing stories involving this charming pair of bovine buddies. An "I Can Read Book."
—Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-"It was a dark, dark night-," and so starts this tale of those bovine pals, Minnie and Moo. In the midst of a storm comes a scream in the night. All the animals rush out of the barn, and Rooster is convinced there is a blue-nosed monster in there with horns and six-inch fangs just waiting for the animals' return. Only the intrepid Minnie and Moo are brave enough to investigate what is really waiting in the barn. In addition to fans of this series, this Level 3 "An I Can Read Book" will appeal to budding mystery aficionados who enjoy a little humor along with their detecting. Sounds of rumbling, booming thunder, barn doors creaking, and screams in the night all add to the enjoyment. The story is well-recorded, and the different voices employed by narrator Barbara Caruso will help beginning readers distinguish between the characters.-Judy Czarnecki, Chippewa River District Library System, Mt. Pleasant, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The two funniest, most winsome cows on the early-reading circuit have to be Minnie and Moo, always ready to engage any situation with a mixture of slapstick (Moo), sangfroid (Minnie), and a comical use of language. Here, the two are sleeping out under the stars when a storm blows in, bringing lightning and thunder. A bolt hits a nearby barn: "Lightning flashed. Thunder rumbled. There was a scream in the night." The scream is that of a rooster who is convinced there is a monster in the barn. "Every chicken for himself," the rooster squawks. Olga, a piglet, is missing, and worse still, when the animals flee to the farmhouse, it appears that the farmer's leg has been pulled off by the monster and thrown out the window. At least it appears so to the animals; readers will notice rather quickly that the "leg" is an apple-tree branch. It takes Minnie's sensible head to straighten things out, including the discovery of Olga, shimmering with a halo of electricity after standing too close to the milker when lightning struck. Deceptively sophisticated artwork and lively language-" ‘Poor Olga,' a pig wept. ‘Gone,' cried another. ‘Gone, gone, gone,' said Zeke. ‘Like a turkey through the corn,' said Zack"-make this a joy for new readers to tackle. (Easy reader. 4-8)
