[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with MINNIE AND MOO GO DANCING, MINNIE AND MOO SAVE THE EARTH, and MINNIE AND MOO GO TO PARIS.]--Minnie and Moo are two of the most entertaining and charmingly wacky bovine buddies ever to hit the printed page, and Barbara Caruso brings them refreshingly to life on audio. Caruso reads slowly and clearly, enunciating her words and allowing beginning readers time to follow the words, enjoy the illustrations, and appreciate the humor of Minnie and Moo's misunderstandings and adventures. In MINNIE AND MOO GO DANCING, Moo decides that people can go dancing "because they have thumbs," so Minnie gets them all dressed up, and they head out to dance the night away. In MINNIE AND MOO GO TO THE MOON, Moo decides that all they need to drive the farmer's tractor is his boots, hat, and angry words, and off they go. In MINNIE AND MOO SAVE THE EARTH, which sounds like an environmental tale, Minnie and Moo are busily exterminating "space invaders," and in MINNIE AND MOO GO TO PARIS, the pair manage to travel "around the world" in a progression of mistakes and misunderstandings sure to delight most 6-year-olds. The background music and sound effects combine to enhance the stories, and add just the right touch and mood. A winning combination! W.L.S.
