Sandra Boynton goes from greeting cards to honky tonks
By Sandra Boynton
Hardcover, 66 pages ($16.95 / Workman)
Boynton takes a break from her signature line of best-selling greeting cards, children’s book and plush toys to go honky-tonkin’ with this combo storybook and CD of songs (all of which she wrote or co-wrote) about flying pigs, junkyard dogs, troublesome frogs, loveable trucks, broken hearts, beautiful babies and other twang-worthy topics. With an all-star assist from country music’s Brad Paisley, Allison Krauss, Darius Rucker, Dwight Yoakum, Kacey Musgraves and others, music and lyrics for each tune, and info and photos on each of the artists who contributed, it’ll get both kids and grownups hoppin’ and boppin’.
