KIRKUS REVIEW

 Two hip, sunglass-wearing Holsteins borrow some ``new black button-back boots'' and head for a party on the moon. The four Huckabuck children who own the boots are in hot pursuit. Soft stylized landscapes are energized by the fiercely jaunty twosome who thunder unstoppably toward a bunny-hopping rendezvous--a moon meadow filled with cow cousins. The rhymed romp through the nighttime countryside ends when the ``two cool, too cool'' cows eventually return home, and the Huckabucks get their boots back. Accompanied by Root's lissome paintings, Speed reinvents words and manufactures frenzied couplets to introduce readers to a place where a predictably good time will be had by all. (Picture book. 4- 8)
