Minnie and Moo: Night of the Living Bed

By Denys Cazet

Minnie and Moo are a Levelled Readers (3) series for young readers growing in their reading ability

The story of Night of the Living Bed starts with Minnie having a nightmare that all the candy in the world has been eaten by a giant mouse. This sets off a chain of events that sends her and Moo’s bed hurtling down the hill, picking up a variety of other farm animals and sending them off the farm, down to the suburbs. Surprise, it’s Halloween night!

Honestly, I’m not sure why this book is ranked so high as a levelled reader. I found it every simplistic, especially compared to a few other levelled readers I’ve seen.

If you’re looking for a good Halloween Book for a children trying to increase his or her reading level, you could do worse then Minnie and Moo, but there are better ones out there.

Suggested Ages: 5-9
