Minnie and Moo and the Haunted SweaterBook - 2007
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Gr 1-2-Chickens and sheep collide in a tangle of wool and feathers and pull readers into an outlandishly hilarious romp as two unconventional cows prepare a surprise for the farmer's birthday. Minnie is giving the farmer her last cream puff (left, so he can't miss it, in his slipper). Moo decides to knit a sweater, a very special sweater, but washing it reveals that it can both sneeze and talk. While both of them ignore the fact that Elvis the Rooster is missing and conclude that the sweater must be haunted, all attempts to control it and "teaching it a lesson" allow readers to laugh at their ignorance and the resulting calamity for Elvis. Cazet's colorful pen and watercolor cartoons faithfully build on the text. Nonstop action and a clever plot place this title at the top of the list for young readers ready for a slightly more complex story.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
