Minnie and Moo: Hooves of Fire by Denys Cazet

It's a perfect day for the First Annual Hoot, Holler, and Moo Talent Festival. The sun is shining in a warm autumn sky and the stage is set. Mr. and Mrs. Farmer are away on vacation, Minnie and Moo are dressed in their togas, Elvis has his bagpipe, the hyenas their jokes, the fox his magic tricks, the sheep a protest poem, and the cash box is stuffed with money from ticket sales. A perfect day. Wait a minute ...Where is the cash box? Why are those coyotes on motorcycles? And who pushed those Porta Potties down the hill?


Another romp with nary a dull nor serious moment; welcome back, girls. (Illustrated fiction. 9-11) -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review A good bet for kids who discovered the characters when they began reading and are ready for longer books. With amusing dialogue, expressive black-and-white drawings, and a chapter called 'Race of the Port-A-Potties,

't be disappointed. -- Carolyn Phelan, Booklist The bovine stars of several picture books and early readers (and the 2003 chapter book Minnie and Moo and the Seven Wonders of the World) make a raucous return as hosts of the First Annual Hoot, Holler, and Moo Talent Festival. Take-charge Moo announces that she and Minnie will judge the show, explaining, Scores will be based on whim, impulse, and passing fancy. A long chain of performances makes up most of the book: early on, Elvis the rooster hogs the stage and croons, I'm a Cocka Doodle Dandy/ That doodles up the sun./ No one starts the day/ Till I say it's all begun, while the Poulettes, a troupe of cheerleading chickens, lay eggs onstage ( We were motivated! ). Minnie's trademark worrying is warranted, as her suspicions that hyenas, weasels, and coyotes are up to no good are comically validated when they organize a port-a-potty race and get their paws on the show money box. Cazet's b&w illustrations pump additional energy into this loony down-on-the-farm story. -- Publishers Weekly The words are perfect for a young reader just getting into chapter books. The illustrations are hilarious and fit perfectly with the story. -- Book Reviews by Tima Cazet rolls out a tale equally rich in urbane innuendo and slapstick hilarity, cast in well-spaced lines of fluent prose and illuminated with lots of comical monochromatic ink-and-wash views that feature expressively posed animals in casual human dress or, in aptly named Elvis the rooster's case, a white luminescent jumpsuit.
