About 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.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-This amusing beginning chapter book features the rooster from Cazet's "Minnie and Moo" series (HarperCollins). As Elvis sees the first light in the east, he prepares to "lift the sun" with his voice, but a bug flies into his mouth at just the wrong moment and prevents him from crowing. When he realizes that the day has begun without him, he is so shocked that he faints. Later, his friends find him and put him to bed in the chicken coop. Feeling as though life is no longer worth living, he melodramatically begins to bid his farewells. After some funny bantering about Elvis losing his pluck ("He's lost his cluck?"), his friends devise a plan to restore his confidence. Cazet's writing is filled with quirky characters, simple wordplay, and gentle humor. The cartoon artwork perfectly reflects the tone of the text. Elvis appears in profile on the cover, spraying his throat as he prepares to sing, and the shape of the comb on his head brings to mind the trademark hairstyle of his namesake. Young readers will root for this rooster as he tries to find the will to pull himself together and do his job.
