Minnie & Moo Hooves of Fire by Denys Cazet

Minnie & Moo Hooves of Fire by Denys Cazet

Description from the publisher:
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?

I thought this book was really cute and enjoyable. Max however, did not. It seemed to  take us a long time to read because he could not seem to get into it. He did like parts of it but overall, he was not thrilled.  

We did read this book at bedtime but it was too comical and not a relaxing, calm down type of book so I suggest you  read it earlier in the day. We both liked the pictures throughout the book and the cover is really cute.

I personally think the size of the book itself is what bothered Max. He just turned seven and can read very well but this is a rather thick book and he seemed scared of it. That is just my thoughts. 

Overall, I liked this book and really think it would be an excellent read for a classroom of children! They will laugh and laugh as you read it!
