Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
"A treat for independent readers and a great read-aloud for preschoolers"
Horn Book Magazine
"Cazet’s illustrations add visual humor to the cows’ deadpan delivery as they try to explain Easter"
Publishers Weekly
Two bovine buddies don rabbit suits when the farmer says he's too old to be the Easter Bunny in the paperback edition of Minnie and Moo: The Attack of the Easter Bunnies by Denys Cazet. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
OK, I admit it, I am a sucker for these books. The stories and illustrations make me laugh out loud every time I read one and this one was no exception. I really think they are written for both kids and adults, because I can't imagine an adult reading this aloud and not having a chuckle. Moo is really upset because she has just learned that the Farmer says that he is too old to be the Easter Bunny. The cows are worried about how disappointed the grandchildren will be. These two bovine belles head out to the chicken coop and try to get Elvis the rooster to help. He is unwilling and suggests they try the pigs. One of the small ones volunteers (Hamlet), but he needs permission from his mom. In the meantime Minnie and Moo head off to ask the sheep, but they cannot make up their minds because the dog is the boss. Next it is off to see the turkeys Zeke and Zack and then the readers along with the turkeys learn why eggs are a symbol of Easter, but they still end up confused about bunnies laying eggs. Well, that is the last straw, and Minnie and Moo decide that they have to be the Easter Bunnies. It turns out that all their farmyard buddies really didn't let them down and what results is just chaos and hilarious as they all parade around as Easter Bunnies. The bewildered farmer gets all the credit and the kids really love the show. Minnie and Moo are a sight to behold as they exit from the scene by hopping over the white picket fence in their bunny suits. Do read this book and it is even funnier the second and third time through as you notice more humorous gags in the illustrations. Part of the "An I Can Read Book" series. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 7.
—Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Minnie and Moo are in top form in their latest wacky, easy-to-read adventure. This time, Minnie overhears the farmer telling Mrs. Farmer that he is too old to be the Easter Bunny. Since all of the grandchildren are expecting an egg hunt, the cows try to find a substitute. After all of the other barnyard animals turn them down, Minnie and Moo take matters into their own hooves. All ends happily, of course, with a zany Easter Parade. Cazet's springlike pastels and comically cartoony figures illuminate the fun goings-on, but it's the silly dialogue that carries the day. Cazet's lovably offbeat characters follow in the "hoof" steps of Bernard Wiseman's Morris the Moose and James Marshall's Fox.-Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Minnie and Moo, two cows anyone would like to have in their pasture, are on the prowl for an Easter Bunny proxy in their 11th caper. The farmer is feeling his years and has declined the role of Easter Bunny, so Minnie and Moo embark on a search for a substitute. But the chicken has sore feet and the piglet can't find his mother to get permission; the sheep are too equivocating (" 'Can't you make up your own minds?' Minnie asked. 'Well, yes,' said another sheep. 'And no,' said another. 'Sometimes,' said one") and the turkeys just plain clueless ("I didn't even know bunnies laid eggs"). The job, of course, falls to Minnie and Moo, but all the other animals soon join them. They rendezvous in the tool shed to costume up, which scares the gee whillikers out of the farmer when he inadvertently enters the shed (hence the title). Cazet's cockeyed good cheer is in fine form here-a simple pleasure of verbal dexterity-as is his art: Elvis the chicken's costume-bedraggled rabbit ears crowning his scrawny head-is worth framing. (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.
