Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-The zany bovines are at it again. This time, wearing trench coats, fedoras, and dark sunglasses, they head for the bank to ask for some money to help out their farmer. The cows bear an uncanny resemblance to the notorious criminals the Bazooka sisters and cause quite a stir in town. However, all's well that ends well down on the farm. Minnie and Moo are armed with impeccable comic timing and are "wanted" by kids everywhere. However, the many Bonnie and Clyde-like references here might be beyond most of the fans of the series, resulting in some confusion and lost jokes. Overall, though, the lively action and colorful artwork should appeal to newly independent readers.-H. H. Henderson, Heritage Middle School, Deltona, FL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

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.
