Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The bovine buddies are back to share their love in Minnie and Moo: Will You Be My Valentine? by Denys Cazet. From Moo's "Ode to the Cream Puff" (inspired by a mishap that sends Minnie's pastry into her lap) to some misdirected love poems that cause a hubbub in the barnyard, this new beginning reader adventure will once again win the affections of Minnie and Moo fans. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Denys Cazet's bouncing bovines are back again with another madcap idea (HarperCollins, 2002), long on originality and short on execution! Love is in the air and Moo, after creating a poem dedicated to (what else?) cream puffs, is determined to spread the joy while the moooose is upon her. The cows dress in pink tutus and, with a quiver full of Moo's romantic missives, they set out. The poems are remarkably bad, and things will only get verse as they shoot love's arrows around the farm, with unexpected (only to those who've never read a Minnie and Moo story) results. The book is read by Barbara Caruso, who keeps it nicely paced and creates individual voices for each character. While not exclusively for Valentine's Day, this read-along would be especially well-received at that time. It would also work out nicely for poetry units, showing young poets how an idea can be milked to the extreme. All in all, very amooosing!-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Minnie and Moo, those marvelous big-nostrilled cows, continue their side-splitting trip through the holidays (Minnie and Moo: The Night Before Christmas, p. 1617, etc.). It’s Valentine’s Day and Moo is writing poems. Her first creation, "Ode to the Cream Puff," brings tears to Minnie’s eyes, because "poems about food always make me weep." When the bovine heroines see their fellow animals fighting, they decide that everyone needs some of their love poems. They dress up in fetching tutus and wings, grab their bows and rubber arrows, and proceed to send their "love poems" to their farm friends. The poems, which range from very funny to downright wipe-your-eyes hilarious, will tickle even the most resistant funny bone. Imagine young faces when they hear or read "keener" rhymed with "wiener." Then the poems get mixed up; the turkey poem, "Dear Turkey Legs," is sent to the farmer’s wife, the goat poem is sent to the farmer, and love threatens to be thwarted. Cazet’s comical over-the-top watercolors elevate this joyful, rollicking story of love and friendship and offer wonderful facial expressions to punctuate the humor. The farmer’s wife takes her shot: "Cows don’t write poems," she tells her husband. Young readers will know better, especially if they have read Click, Clack, Moo. Keep ’em moooving, Minnie and Moo. (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.
