Lolling after hours in the farmer's hot tub, Minnie and Moo hardly suspect that aliens are landing just one hill to the west. We see the mite-sized, bug-eyed enemy in alternate chapters, peering through their snooper scope, revving themselves up for an invasion. They mistake the cows for giants, their horns for newfangled weapons, the steaming hot tub for a spaceship moments from liftoff. Minnie and Moo mistake the invaders as mosquitoes, and a hilarious battle ensues -- with an earth-saving flyswatter.

Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-2. Minnie and Moo, those irrepressible cows, appear in two new adventures. In Paris, Moo decides she wants to explore new places. So Moo and reluctant Minnie commandeer a tour bus that takes them, among other places, to China, Paris, and a safari park. The cows think they are in Africa and bring the animals back to the farm, where the farmer has lost his glasses and doesn't know what he's milking. Kids will have to know what the Eiffel Tower looks like in order to get the joke when the duo mistakes an oil well for the tower in Paris. In Save the Earth, the bovines are in their own backyard when space men descend. Fortunately, the aliens are only as big as gnats, and Minnie and Moo squash 'em. Although not as sharply clever as the previous books in the series, these entries will elicit laughs from new readers. The pencil-and-watercolor pictures are handily executed but are sometimes too small to really extend the text. Kids who like the misunderstandings of the Amelia Bedelia books will also like what goes on here. --Ilene Cooper
