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 AudioFile:
Even the page-turning instructions are dramatic on this tape. Barbara Caruso tells listeners what sound to listen for to turn pages with a great flourish, like a conductor directing a great orchestra. Goofy cows Minnie and Moo meet an alien from Planet Potato who needs milk for spaceship fuel. Caruso sounds dizzy as Minnie, making readers shake their heads at her lack of common sense. She is practical as Moo, always factual and precise. Children who appreciate animal tales will enjoy this production. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
