I really like animals,
I like them a lot.
Fifteen animals is what I’ve got.
I’ve got fifteen animals.
They're friendly and tame, and
I’ve given each one a special name.

Make that Bob.

Meet the Author

Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, writer, and songwriter. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over forty children’s books and seven general audience books, including four New York Times bestsellers. More than 60 million of her books have been sold—“mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written and produced five albums of award-winning children’s music. Three of her albums have been certified Gold, and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, is nearing Platinum. She lives with her family on a farm in New England.

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!)

    Anything by Sandra B is the BEST!

    My kids grew up with 'Doggies' and 'Red Hat, Blue Hat'. When friends have kids, I ALWAYS give them a copy. My college age student took 'Doggies' to school with her and my son loves the hippo books. Read this book and glory in the Bobs! You can't go wrong with Sandra Boyton, she is the next best thing to Chocolate!

    Funny story

    "Fifteen Animals" is a short, but sweet picture book by Sandra Boynton. The narration is a little bit flat. It is not your usual counting book, in that they do not actually count the animals from 1-15. The plot is simple. A boy loves animals so much that he has 15 of them. He talks about his names for them all. All of the animals are called Bob, except the turtle who has a very long and silly name. We have read it a few times with our 3 year old daughter, and we laugh every time.

    So Cute and Funny!

    This is another story that my two year old son loves to hear at bedtime. I think it is absolutely hilarious to have fourteen animals named Bob and then one named Simon James Alexander Ragsdale III. They rhyme is really cute but makes it sort of awkward to point out the numbers to the child while reading. Still very fun to read out loud. Great for story time during the day or for bedtime.

    Sandra Boynton Charm

    With her usual charm Sandra Boynton has created an easy to read, easy to love counting book for pre school and early school age children. The numbers aren't as important as the fun as the pages fly by in their charming way until suddenly you get to the surprise ending! My five year old grandson has it memorized, so he now "reads" it to me at our story reading time!
