Minnie and Moo Wanted Dead or Alive

Minnie and Moo
Wanted Dead or Alive

Denys Cazet

An I Can Read Book: Level 3

It's trouble on the farm when Mr. and Mrs. Farmer can't pay the bills. As Moo knows, such trouble can only end in dust storms and floods. That's bad news since she doesn't know how to swim. Luckily, she has a plan. Minnie and Moo dress up and head to town to ask the bank for some of its extra cash. Unfortunately, with their fancy suits (the bank will give them more money if they are rich) and their violin case (they need some way to carry the money), these good-deed doing cows look remarkably like the bank-robbing Bazooka Sisters. What follows is an accidental bank robbery, an unintentional getaway, and a story that will have new readers (and old) laughing out loud.

Minnie and Moo are the bovine queens of comedy. Their winsome world view gets them into trouble and right back out without missing a beat. Cazet packs a remarkable amount of humor into the short text and matches it perfectly with his expressive and slightly exagerated art. Sophisticated and silly at the same time, Minnie and Moo: Wanted Dead or Alive is a pure joy!
