On a mission to save the farm from financial ruin, Minnie and Moo are incorrectly identified as a pair of famous bank robbers: the dreaded Bazooka Sisters. Soon sirens wail and the police are in hot pursuit.

Can Minnie and Moo escape the long arm of the law? Or does this case of mistaken identity spell curtains for the innocent cows?

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 Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. In this eighth I Can Read title about Minnie and Moo, the cows learn that Mr. Farmer is in financial trouble. Trying to help, they don disguises and visit the bank to ask for a loan ("The richer we look, the more money they'll give us," reasons Moo). At the bank, though, they are mistaken for famous robbers, the Bazooka Sisters, and their innocent actions are interpreted as criminal behavior. They are chased back to the farm, where the money is retrieved, and Mr. Farmer earns a reward, putting him back in the black. Cazet's watercolor illustrations of cows dressed as gangsters and cows driving a tractor extend the story's absurd humor and will help move emerging readers through eight chapters of text. Another hilarious installment that's sure to please newly independent readers. Kathy Broderick
