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!)

    Cute but not a favorite

    I got this book when my son was 4 months old. He is nearly 8 months old now. At first he was very interested in it (I think he liked the purple cover) but after we have read it a few times he doesn't reach for it like he used to. I don't like that the font is all capital letters and the sentences run on and on. The book has held up nicely to wear and tear; I used baby wipes to clean it if we read right after a meal and so far this book has remained stain free. Another complaint I have is that it is kind of expensive ($5-$6 plus tax) considering how short it is!

    Great for toddlers

    My husband and I enjoy reading this book to our 15 month old son. It is a great way to learn body parts. The story holds his attention from beginning to end.
