Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
'Tis the season to be silly, particularly when Boynton's at the helm. A tiny reindeer named Bob kicks off this set of seven merry poems (and, in fact, sneaks into the other six). The verse is cheery ("The turkey is loud. The donkey is, too./ The rooster joins in, so why shouldn't you?"), the presentation crisp, and the board book packs an added bonus: as in Snoozers, a tabbed index allows little fingers to select a favorite tale in a trice. But it's Boynton's signature cartoons, in her expert balance of tender and goofy, that will draw the crowds. All ages. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton is a popular American humorist, songwriter, children’s author, and illustrator. Boynton has written and illustrated more than forty books for both children and adults, as well as more than four thousand greeting cards and four music albums. She has designed—for various companies—calendars, wallpaper, bedding, stationery, paper goods, clothing, jewelry, and plush toys.

Biography

In the 1980s, it was hard to enter a gift shop without seeing Sandra Boynton's name. Her humorous pen-and-watercolor cartoons of hippos, ewes, and her famous turkeys (you know, symbolizing the human ones in life who can get you down) were emblazoned on cards, mugs, stickers, stationery...and of course, her wonderful, wacky books, the first of which was 1979's Hippos Go Berserk! .

Boynton began her career as a greeting card illustrator with aspirations of theater directing; but having a family changed her focus, and she began devoting herself full-time to art. Her board books, filled with goofy animal illustrations and rhyming verse, are toddler staples. But their appeal to adults is undeniable, and she has also written a number of humor books for the general public.

Given the rhythmic, buoyant style of her writing, it was only natural that Boynton would become involved in companion music to her books. From the '90s on, several of her titles included accompanying CDs, culminating in the 2002 release of Philadelphia Chickens, a CD-book extravaganza written with composer Michael Ford and featuring musical performances by several high-profile stars.

Who knows what lies ahead for this irrepressible force of nature? If there's one thing Sandra Boynton has proved in the course of her remarkably diverse career, it's that she's not lost her capacity to surprise us. (Thank heavens!)

    We love Sandra Boynton!

    My kids love listening to Sandra Boynton's books. They usually rhyme and have a good beat to them. They also have a lot of silly and absurd elements that appeal to the kids. This was an excellent addition to our Christmas book collection.

    Great book for all children

    This is an excellent book for young readers with short attention spans. The stories are only 1-2 pages in length. <BR/>This book would also be good for parents to read to non-readers. The illustrations are fanciful and engaging.

    Excellent for the toddlers

    My girls love this book. They have memorized it and are able to repeat the verses without me. We had to go out and get our own plush Bob, of course. Boynton is fun and able to present the wacky stuff toddlers love.
