About the Author


Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over seventy-five children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 85 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

Praise For…


“This is one of those rare occasions where the board book edition is an improvement on the (beloved) original picture book…(Boynton’s) signature trademarks remain, including a range of animal musicians, plenty of humor, a dynamic array of fonts, and pleasing read-aloud-ready sound effects (‘BOOM-biddy BOOM!’). A Christmas parade worth watching and listening to all year long.”
Horn Book Magazine

This review is for the original, hardcover edition: 

* “Boynton presents a wild and woolly parade of creatures, all performing for a bunny-slipper-shod piggy. All the usual suspects are there: chickens with bassoons, piggies with balloons, a plethora of drumming hippos, Santa (as portrayed by a trumpet-wielding rhino), and much, much more. They march to a lively beat, straight to the little piggy’s house to wish him Merry Christmas. Hand out the musical instruments, line up the kids, and get ready for a noisy holiday celebration! A fabulously fun addition.”
School Library Journal, starred review

This review is for the original, hardcover edition:

“Boynton’s droll animal characters march through this small volume with their usual deadpan humor, set off by her minimalist rhyming text…Younger children will learn the names of the instruments the animals play, and any adult readers who are marching-band alums will enjoy pointing out their favorite musical instruments…Boynton’s buoyant text and comical characters march to their own inimitable drummer.”
