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:
PreSchool-Grade 2—Grandma tells Grandpa to wash windows but Grandpa would rather tell stories to Barney, who is in bed with the chicken pox in this read-along (HarperCollins, 2006) written and illustrated by Denys Cazet. Grandpa leans his ladder against the pup's second floor window and tells the story of a pig that gets her snout stuck in the freezer while trying to eat a box of chocolates. This sweet, simple story-in-a-story is read in a soothing voice by a male narrator. Some sound effects are added to the voice track, like the sound of a door closing, coffee pouring, and a siren wailing; one track has page-turn signals. Cazet's cartoon-like illustrations are hilarious. Beginning readers will be enjoy this title.—Marilyn Hersh, Hillside Elementary School, Farmington Hills, MI
