Review
  • Gr.1-2, younger for reading aloud. Those intrepid cows, Minnie and Moo, are back. Moo is waxing philosophical (“We have so much to be thankful for, yet I feel sadness in the air . . .”) when the turkeys interrupt her. They know it’s Thanksgiving, and they need to hide. No sooner do Minnie and Moo manage to get them up a tree than the chickens appear--they’re next on the food chain. So chickens, pigs, and two other cows all wind up out on a limb. The farmer’s family (vegetarians bringing a tofu turkey), can’t help noticing food falling from the tree--eggs, and milk, and finally, a pig. But it seems there are also bees in the tree, causing a mass exodus that leaves Minnie and Moo once again pondering the poignancy of the season. Minnie and Moo are two prime specimens, and it’s always fun to see how much madness Cazet can pack into an easy reader. Here, the answer is lots. The cumulative tale gets more wry and spry by the page. The watercolors, featuring frantic turkeys, clucking chickens, and bemused bovines, could have been larger in some cases, but at their best, they provide a cornucopia of laughs. (Reviewed September 1, 2000) -- Ilene Cooper
  • Gr 1-2-Minnie and Moo, those cream-puff eating cows, are back with another misadventure. The turkeys are nervous on Thanksgiving morning, and the cows send them to hide in a tall oak tree. Next, the chickens worry about what will happen if the farmer can't find the turkeys, and so on and on until all of the farm's livestock are hiding among its branches. The animals needn't worry, though, for Mrs. Farmer has prepared a tofu loaf in the shape of a turkey, and the family and their guests settle down for a Thanksgiving picnic beneath this tree. Newly independent readers will appreciate the large print, four or five sentences per page, and four-page "chapters." As in Cazet's earlier titles about this bovine pair, silliness reigns supreme in the illustrations and in the far-fetched plot.-Sharon R.
