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:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—"Once upon a time," begins this story within a story, as Grandpa tries to take young Barney's mind off his itchy chicken pox. He tells of his adventures when he and his pal Doc Storkmeyer were exploring the jungle on bicycles. They encountered the poison-arrow-throwing, drum-beating Pooches, whose tribal queen designated Grandpa to be her king. When he rejected her romantic offer, she ordered her subjects to "use the shrink juice." Even though poor Doc suffered a head-shrinking, Grandpa cleverly engineered the duo's escape and restored his friend's head to normal size. This brush with terror is really just a rollicking tall tale; the hilarious cartoon drawings of the dogs dancing around their cauldron of vile green stuff and the boxes with silly dialogue throughout will make children laugh and eagerly await a fourth installment.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
