Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 In three brief stories, Chloe and Maude experience the vicissitudes of friendship, bringing to mind such staples of the genre as Marshall's ``George and Martha'' series (Houghton) and Lobel's ``Frog and Toad'' (Harper). Steady, resourceful Chloe resolves Maude's bouts with ego problems and, in an overnight visit, an imagined menace on the bedroom ceiling. Young readers will probably find Maude's problems familiar ones; given a little help with a few exotic words, many will be able to read the book independently. Adults may recognize the neckless kitty figures of Chloe and Maude as kissing cousins of the droll little animals in Boynton's greeting card line. Despite their squat proportions, they have made the leap from card to book with considerable success. Janet French, Centennial School District Libraries, Warminster, Pa.

Meet the Author

Sandra Boynton
Sandra Boynton
Cartoonist/author Sandra Boynton infuses her books with a sense of joy, silliness, and -- well, lots of farm animals. With her fun board books, the woman famous for the adults' mantra "Don't Let the Turkeys Get You Down" has become a natural favorite for toddlers.

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!)

    Four Kids' Favorite

    I read this book to all four of my kids over a period of more than 15 years. They all loved it. Probably all of them still do. We wish Boynton would allow a reprint.

    Chloe and Maude, come back!!!

    I loved Chloe and Maude as a child also. My sister and I still refer to them from time to time. I even saved some pajamas that have Chloe and Maude on the front. Sandra Boyton should definitely bring the boys back. They would make any child happy!!!

    Best kids book ever

    Chloe and Maude was my favorite childrens book of all time, and it's sad that it was never more popular than it was. Even sadder still is the fact that it's not even available anymore. It's a classic...definitely a classic....
