Author, designer, cartoonist and illustrator, Sandra Boynton, rose to prominence in the literary world in the 1980s when her humorous animal characters and clever text filled picture books graced greeting cards, mugs, stickers, posters, stationary, and more. At the peak of her career, Boynton had created some 150 designs and sold more than 80 million cards a year. When her cards attracted imitators, Boynton began to publish her own illustrated books, produced an array of merchandise including a children’s clothing line.
Boynton’s publications have ranged from toddlers’ board games like Hippos Go Berserk! to adult humor titles like The Compleat Turkey, with cartoons poking fun at life’s difficult people, the so-called “turkeys”. In the 1990s, Boynton started pairing her children’s books with music, releasing popular book-and-CD sets.
