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 Booklist:
K-Gr. 2. After overhearing the farmer tell his wife that he is "too old to be the Easter Bunny" for their grandchildren, Minnie and Moo try to convince the rooster, the pigs, the sheep, and the turkeys to take on the job. When all else fails, the loyal cows don enormous pink and yellow bunny suits, only to find that a remarkable menagerie of volunteers have answered the call. In the accompanying artwork, drawings brightened with springlike pastel washes ably express the characters' emotions as well as their actions. Challenging the notion that books for beginning readers are bland, this entry in the Minnie and Moo series provides a story and illustrations that are not only witty but occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. A treat for independent readers, who will request previous Minnie and Moo books, and a great read-aloud for preschoolers at Easter. Carolyn Phelan
