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:

Grade 1-2-Two books sure to please the never-ending requests for Halloween stories. In Frankenswine, Minnie and Moo solve a mystery about a monster in the barn that is terrifying the animals. Rumors abound, resulting in moments of humor, such as the farmyard denizens thinking that a branch is the farmer's leg. Cazet's softly colored illustrations of the fearful animals and the brave bovines add to the appeal. In Grandmas Trick-or-Treat, Pip is once again stuck in the middle between her totally different grandmothers. One thinks Halloween is great fun; the other thinks it brings out the worst in people. In the end, the two women work together to teach some bullies a lesson and find that the festivities can bring out the best in people. McCully's art, done predominately in the rusts and golds of autumn, highlights the children's activities, but it's really the grannies who steal the show here. Both books have easy-to-read texts and large print.
