Elvis is a proud rooster. After all, his crows make the sun come up and wake the world. At least they did until the terrible morning that he swallowed a bug and the sun came up without him. Poor Elvis! Is he all washed-up? Is it over? Should he give up and simply pass on to the great chicken coop in the sky? Not if the chickens - Daniela, Gina, and Lia - can help it!

The popular rooster from Denys Cazet's Minnie and Moo books proudly takes center stage in his first zany adventure.

Denys Cazet is the author and illustrator of more than 25 picture books for children, including Never Spit On Your Shoes, winner of the California Young Readers Medal. The books about Minnie and Moo are his first for beginning readers. He was inspired to tell stories about the silly cow best-friends when he passed a herd of cows in which all but two were facing the same way. The other two stood next to each other, facing in the opposite direction from the rest of the cows. He immediately dubbed the two nonconformists Minnie and Moo and imagined the adventures two cows who were loyal friends rather than followers of the herd. Mr. Cazet is currently writing I Can Read Books featuring Elvis the Rooster from the farm on which Minnie and Moo live. Mr. Cazet was an elementary school teacher for 25 years, and has also been a school librarian and elementary school media specialist. He remains active in his local elementary school parent and advisory committees. A California native, Mr. Cazet lives with his family in the foothills of the Napa Valley.
