A little about Alexandra Boiger
Alexandra Boiger was born in Munich, Germany, and studied graphic design. Her work as an animation assistant brought her initially to England, and then to DreamworksSKG in the United States.
The first picture book she illustrated, While Mama Had a Quick Little Chat, was written by Amy Reichert, published by the legendary Dick Jackson books, and was a Fall 2005 Book Sense Pick and a recipient of a Parents’ Choice Award.
Since then Alexandra has illustrated numerous books, including the popular picture books about ballerina Tallulah, written by Marilyn Singer as well the charming chapter book series The Magical Animal Adoption Agency, written by Kallie George. Her latest book, When Jackie Saved Grand Central: The True Story of Jacqueline Kennedy’s Fight for an American Icon, is a non-fiction picture book, written by Natasha Wing, which celebrates winning in the face of immeasurable odds and how one person can make a big difference.
Fall 2015 marked Alexandra’s debut as both author and illustrator, with Max and Marla, the opening in a picture book series, published by Putnam.
Alexandra’s work has been named to various state reading lists, including the Iowa Children’s Choice Master List, Chicago Library Best of the Best, and the Florida Sunshine State Young Readers Award, among others. She has been invited by Studio Ghibli to contribute an original work to be included in the Mary Blair Centennial Exhibition which traveled to a number of cities throughout Japan.
Alexandra lives in California together with her husband and daughter. (Bio from Alexandra’s website)
