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:
Kindergarten-Grade 2–The Spanielsons, first introduced in The Octopus (HarperCollins, 2005), are back, and Barney is still down with chicken pox. Grandma thinks that the best treatment is cocoa and plenty of time to rest, but Grandpa has other ideas. What he needs is another one of my famous anti-itch chicken pox stories. Instead of washing the windows, a task Grandma gives him, he sneaks up a ladder to tell his grandpup a ridiculous story–one in which he was a fire chief and answered the call to save Mrs. Piggerman's life. By the end of the tale, Barney's itches are getting better. One seldom sees a beginning reader with such strong characters and an equally appealing plot–Cazet has created both, added hilarious illustrations, and made a neat little package for all to enjoy.–Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
