Tell Your Friends:


Love is everywhere! It's Valentine's Day and Minnie and Moo are armed with bow and arrows-- and dressed in pink tutus, of course-- to spread "love poems for the needy." With their usual flair, they send their messages, oblivious to the confusion they create when their intended targets end up with the wrong poems. Comical and charming, the clever cows once again bring joy and laughter to the barnyard and to beginning readers!

Cazet, Denys

"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. "
