About the Author

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, writer, children's author, and songwriter. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over forty children's books and seven general audience books, including four New York Times Bestsellers. More than 35 million of her books have been sold—"mostly to friends and family," she says. She has also written and produced five albums of award-winning children's music. Three of her albums have been certified Gold, and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, is nearing Platinum. In 2008, she was awarded the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Cartoonists Society.

My two year old grandson loves this book.

If you like Boynton books, you'll like this one (even if your kid makes you read it dozens of times.)

Format: Board book
"Fifteen Animals" is, admittedly (and intentionally) a bit of a one-note joke... But it's also more cute, Boyntonesque fun! The gag is that the narrator loves animals, but gives them all the same name: Bob. He's got a cat named Bob and a frog named Bob and a cow named Bob... indeed, all of his animals have the same name except for one, who has a long, lofty, goofy, aristocratic sounding name instead. It's funny the first time around, although it doesn't have the same sort of rolls-off-your-tongue kookiness and durability as some of Boynton's older books. Still, ya gotta love Sandra Boynton, even when she gives all the animals the same name! (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)

We're big fans of Sandra Boynton in this house. We love her illustrations, and the fact that her books are enjoyable for kids, while not being annoying to adults! I always secretly hope my 2-year-old will pick a Boynton book for our pre-bedtime reading.

Fifteen Animals did not disappoint. Whimsical, cute, easy for little kids to understand. My son is into counting in a big way, so while I'm reading about the animals, he's pointing out the numbers on each page. Bottom line: we love it!

My wife hates that 14 of the animals are named Bob. Honestly, that doesn't bother me nearly as much as 5 of the animals are rabbits. That bunny section doesn't even flow as nice as the rest of the book. Anyway, overall, it has nice illustrations and combined with a quick read, the book is fun... but it just gets okay marks from me. In my view, it had potential, it just could have used a little modification... especially the bunny section. Sorry, Bobs.

My son LOVES Boynton. So I got a set of new books. We both love One Two Three, we both love The Belly Button Book, and neither of us like this one. It's not funny to us.

However, if your kid thinks it's funny, great! The art is certainly great, but the words were a letdown to us.

The kids found this book to be quite humorous. I don't think it is as good as some of Sandra Boynton's books, but still a good one. I would get this if you are looking to expand your Sandra Boynton collection.

My baby is not that excited about this book, probably because all the animal are named Bob. I think it's a little confusing to him to hear the names of the animals and then hear Bob after each one. He doesn't get it.

I bought this book for my two and a half year old, who just so happens to name all of his toy animals Bob. He loves it and enjoys "reading" along with me, filling in with "Bob" when I pause. My five year old even gets a kick out of it. It's silly but enjoyable.

The illustrations are wonderful, as expected of Sandra Boynton's books. The storyline is okay, but the down part is except for the turtle, all the animals are named Bob?! Wouldn't it be better if each animal has its own unique name.
