Minnie and Moo Save the Earth (Minnie and Moo Series)

Overview

"Look at those stars, Minnie," Moo says, wondering. "We can't be the only intelligent life in the universe." Lolling after hours in the farmer's hot tub, Minnie and Moo hardly suspect that aliens are landing just one hill to the west. We see the mite-sized, bug-eyed enemy in alternate chapters, peering through their snooper scope, revving themselves up for an invasion. They mistake the cows for giants, their horns for newfangled weapons, the steaming hot tub for a spaceship moments from liftoff. Minnie and Moo mistake the invaders are mosquitoes, ...

Overview

"Look at those stars, Minnie," Moo says, wondering. "We can't be the only intelligent life in the universe." Lolling after hours in the farmer's hot tub, Minnie and Moo hardly suspect that aliens are landing just one hill to the west. We see the mite-sized, bug-eyed enemy in alternate chapters, peering through their snooper scope, revving themselves up for an invasion. They mistake the cows for giants, their horns for newfangled weapons, the steaming hot tub for a spaceship moments from liftoff. Minnie and Moo mistake the invaders are mosquitoes, and a hilarious battle ensues -- with an earth-saving flyswatter.

While relaxing in the farmer's hot tub, two cow friends unknowingly thwart an alien invasion and save the planet.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Raker Collins
To continue a new series of Minnie and Moo books, here the two cow friends save the earth from aliens while relaxing in a farmer's hot tub one night. Moo, the speculative one, sees three comets fall on a hill nearby while she's stargazing. She wonders if they might be space ships. Minnie is much more interested in her weight and hair and brie. From their vantage point, the actual aliens (who are small insect-like creatures) surmise that the cows are about to attack the invaders. Moo swats the mosquito-like beings as they come swarming over the hot tub, and Minnie joins in vehemently when they go for the brie. It is a very whimsical insight into the friendship between the two "ladies" who never know that they have saved the world. The pencil and watercolor pictures of the cows in the tub and of the aliens on the space ship, the mother ship, and the father ship are charming and quirky. Particularly inventive is the bug-swatting scene where the water of the hot tub splattering over the page is actually blue watercolor spattered with the paintbrush. Early readers should be truly amused by this one.
Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
There are more ways than one to save the earth, as evidenced in this hilarious romp featuring two unlikely bovine heroes in charming watercolor pictures. What's important to Minnie and Moo is enjoying their leisurely hot tub picnic in the farmer's yard, munching on cheeses and gazing at the stars...until a comet seems to land on the next hill and then is joined by another, and another. It seems an alien invasion is being launched, a takeover of their "green space pimple" of planet Earth! Infuriated at the thought of losing her fancy cheeses, especially the Brie, Minnie ferociously swats at whatever is flying by, never noticing that it's no longer mosquitoes but pop-eyed purple aliens swarming with ray guns around the hot tub. All ends happily as the invaders are vanquished and three "comets" streak once more across the sky. There's even a toast with alfalfa fizz to celebrate peace on earth once again.
