John Lechner and his puppets

I’m an author, illustrator, animator, and puppeteer. I’ve been inspiring children with my stories, artwork, and puppet shows for over twenty-five years. Visit my Puppets page or my Author Visits page to learn more about my live presentations.  I’m also available for illustration, design, and animation projects. 

As a founding member of FableVision Studios in Boston, I’ve helped create award-winning animation and educational media for children of all ages. I’ve also written and illustrated four picture books, made animated films, and drawn lots of webcomics. Many of my stories and comics are available to read here
