About the Author
Sandra Boynton is a beloved American cartoonist, children’s
author, songwriter, and highly sporadic short film director.
Boynton has written and illustrated sixty children’s books and
seven general audience books, including five New York
Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been
sold—“mostly to friends and family,” she says. Boynton has also
written and produced six albums of unconventional children’s
music; three of her albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000
copies sold), and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy,
has gone Platinum (over one million copies sold). Boynton has
also written and directed eleven short musical films and two
animated shorts, including “Tyrannosaurus Funk,” sung by Samuel
L. Jackson, which won the 2018 Grand Prize for Best Children’s
Animation Short from the Rhode Island International Film
Festival. In 2008, Boynton received the Lifetime Achievement
Award from the National Cartoonists Society. Boynton has four
perfect children and an equally perfect granddaughter. Her
Connecticut studio is in a converted barn that has perhaps the
only hippopotamus weathervane in America.
