Editorial Reviews

Review

The birthday child looks very much like a hippopotamus. Her friends, the birthday monsters, arrive just after dawn, bring presents, make a wonderful mess and clean it up. Part of an appealing new board-book series. -- New York Times Book Review, 3/13/94

From the Publisher

The Boynton Board books are compact treasures just right for little kids. Each book is replete with full-color drawings and comes with a die-cut cover. Also in the series are: ONE, TWO, THREE!, a rhyming number primer presented by all sorts of animals; BARNYARD DANCE!, a sing-along book set on the farm; and OH MY OH MY OH DINOSAURS!, where dinosaurs present kids with an easy way to learn all about opposites.

More 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 fifty children's books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times Bestsellers. More than 60 million of her books have been sold--"mostly to friends and family," she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced five albums of renegade children's music. Three of her five 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 six music videos of her songs, including the award-winning "One Shoe Blues" starring B B King. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

I bought this book for my daughter's first birthday recently. We both love it! The first time I read it I couldn't help laughing at the story. The illustrations are so eye catching and colorful. I would recommend this book if you have a birthday party coming up for almost any age!

Format: Board book
This is a fun book about birthdays that is great for children; it is equally entertaining for any adult who's given a party for toddlers or less-than-gracious guests! My 2-year-old loves it; it's aimed at a slightly older child than some of the Boynton standards, such as "Barnyard Dance." In addition, it offers parents the opportunity to discuss what happens at birthday parties, good vs. bad monsters/behavior, and - with older children - how to be a good guest.

I bought this book for my neice's first birthday, and she loves it! The pictures are wonderful, and the text is written in Boynton's usual melodic style--my neice certainly seemed to respond to the sound of others reading the words to her. The story describes five birthday monsters arriving and taking over on "your" birthday; although the monsters themselves aren't scary, young children who can comprehend the story might become upset by certain scenes (eg, the monsters eat all "your" cake!)--but of course, there is a happy ending. An engaging, fun story for young children.

My daughter loved these books when she was a baby, and so did I! Of all the Boynton books, this is the one I like the best. The story is adorable and the cadence is catchy! Every time I see a copy of this book, the story is fresh as the first time I read it. It's a great one for parents to read out loud!

I bought this book for my son's first birthday and it is so fun to read! He is just starting to sit still for a story and this one seemed to hold his attention-probably because of the quick pace and excitement that the monsters demand! I tend to read the monster parts really fast and louder than the rest of the book. And I like the illustrations because we can count balloons and different color hats etc as we read the story.

My daughter thought this book was funny but at the end she was wanting me to ensure her that no monsters were going to come on her birthday and eat all her cake, and open her presents! But after explaining to her about these books being for fun and pretend she has really grown to love this book and telling people that there really are not any birthday monsters.

I bought this book for my daughter's 2nd birthday and she absolutely loves it. She can "read" the book word-for-word as I turn the pages because we've read it so often!! Sandra Boynton is a fantastic author. We have a bunch of her books and they are definitely my daughter's favorites (and mine too).

We have loved every Sandra Boynton book we have received. This book is very cute and colorful, and my daughter's face lit up when she saw it. Always a great buy!
