    Moo’s simple wish is for “a nice pair of thumbs." It’s her longing that leads the cow girls to dress up and dance at the farmer’s party. When they’re mistaken for the farmer’s twin sisters from California, the bovine buddies realize it’s time to hoof it right out of the party! In Minnie and Moo Go to Paris, the two wayward cows are convinced that they are in Paris when they take a bus on a crazy journey that includes passing an electrical tower (the Eiffel Tower?) and then pick up a busload of animal friends to continue on their international adventure. As always, the slapstick humor and endearing characters meld into an appealing story of friendship and fun.
