Alex Wallner’s first language was German but in her formative years, she learned English, drawing and appreciation of the silly from reading Donald Duck, Little Lulu and Katy Keene comic books. In her later years, she learned life lessons on the island where she lived – life is what you make it and it’s better to laugh than cry.
PINOCCHIO ISLAND is the story of Alex’s imaginary island where Sylvia and Max retire and find the ridiculous, converse with ghosts and solve a mystery. Sylvia and Max continue to dance into the sunshine out of the rain. This blog is a platform for Sylvia to channel through Alex with the hope of making people giggle.
Alex is a successful book illustrator and author. You can learn more about her extensive works at: Alexandrawallner.com
