Today’s featured cows look funny and behave in an even funnier way. Their names are Minnie and Moo and they’re best friends. I found them in the second book we’ve read of the Minnie and Moo series called “Minnie and Moo and the potato from Planet X” by Denys Cazet. Read about the previous Minnie and Moo apparition on this blog.
In this book a very alien-looking potato lands in the field where Minnie and Moo are resting. The alien potato quickly enrolls the cows in a rescue mission to save the earth. Part of the mission is to fix the space tractor (the farmer’s tractor will make an adequate replacement) and to find space fuel. Now, it so happens that space fuel is cow’s milk, but only milk with a very high fat content…
Luckily, Moo is the one on the farm who makes such milk but when she’s asked to provide five gallons of it, she freezes. The other farm animals staring at her make her nervous, so her best friend Minnie asks them to go outside and sing Moo a song, just like the farmer does at milking time.
Of course, the story has a happy ending. Just when I think I’ve seen everything there is to seee about cows, I stumble upon such books as the Minnie and Moo series. Their recipe for success? Wacky stories, funny cows!
