“Sandra Boynton’s art has touched the lives of millions who encounter her whimsical, heartwarming drawings in the most unassuming, and most accessible, of places, from the covers and pages of children’s books to the greeting cards sent to loved ones and friends. Her graphic witticisms are a breath of fresh air for all ages, and we look forward to sharing her extraordinary body of work with an enthusiastic public at the Norman Rockwell Museum.”
—Stephanie Plunkett, Chief Curator, Norman Rockwell Museum
FROG TROUBLE is Hoppin'!
HANG ON TO YER HAT, COWBOY!
Yeeeee-hah! Boynton goes Country! With three Gold Record albums and a Grammy nomination to her credit, Boynton now brings you FROG TROUBLE, a terrific CD and illustrated songbook of her new and wildly original Country songs.
And they’re sung by a truly amazing roster of Country Music’s biggest and brightest stars: Here’s Brad Paisley with Copycat, Dwight Yoakam singing I’ve Got a Dog, Alison Krauss on End of a Summer Storm, Ben Folds rocking Broken Piano, Darius Rucker with Beautiful Baby. The lonesome-cowboy title track is performed by the low-voiced moody rocker Mark Lanegan (yes, of Queens of the Stone Age.)
Add Josh Turner, Fountains of Wayne, Ryan Adams, Linda Eder, and Kacey Musgraves—all accompanied by Nashville’s finest instrumentalists, and WHOA. You’ve got yourself some mighty fine music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.
UDDER ABSURDITY FOR ALL AGES, UP TO A HUNDRED AND MOO
AMAZING COWS is a 96-page, lavishly-illustrated, exuberant miscellany of bovinely-inspired
stories, jokes, poems, a song, a myth, and even a vintage Amazing Cow comic book (entitled
"Trouble on Zebblor 7.") AND MORE! In this brief Q & A, Sandra Boynton explains:
Q: This stunning book has inspired a landmark musical performance. But it seems to actually
have nothing whatsoever to do with cows. Can you explain this?
SB: It's a full-length recording of Ravel's "Boléro," arranged for orchestra and kazoos.There's
a limerick in AMAZING COWS that mentions this performance, and so I thought it only fair
to make the recording available. I imagine it will change people's lives.
Though not necessarily for the better."
Dear Ravel Fans, We're sorry that we're no longer able to offer a free download of "Bolero Completely Unraveled." You can buy the recording at most online music sites or pick up a copy of the CD at CD Baby. With apologies--The Publishers
FIFTEEN ANIMALS! is a unique counting bookcount the Bobs, count the pets, count the bunnies, count the fish. Who else but Sandra Boynton could imagine 15 Bobs in one book? Actually, that's 14 Bobs, and one Simon James Alexander Ragsdale the Third (he's a turtle).
FIFTEEN ANIMALS! has all the energy and appeal of Sandra Boynton: the lively language, distinctive illustrations, inimitable characters, and an earnest little boy who loves animals!
