A grinning cartoon striped cat drawn in black and white has the word “GRIN” in uppercase letters above its head. Located at the bottom are the words “and ignore it” written in lowercase. The illustrator’s last name is written next to the cat. The text is black, and the background is light blue.
This is Sandra Boynton's humorous take on the phase “grin & bear it”. Ms. Boynton is an award winning American author, illustrator and humorist.

She has authored and illustrated over fifty books for children and adults. Recently, Ms. Boynton has added songwriting and music producing to her repertoire.
