Great story.
Well shown.

There's an old adage among storytellers known as "show, don't tell". As a picture book, Flexible Fred achieves this maxim along with a "show and tell" approach. The book's pages are filled with brisk, rhythmic prose and vivid illustrations, creating a unique experience for readers of almost any age. The retro-styled drawings seem to have a life of their own yet remain simple, clear, and true to the story. And thanks to a special printing process, the illustrations and text (originally created on an iPad 2) appear just as crisp and colorful as the author intended. When you purchase a copy of Flexible Fred, you're not just getting a timeless narrative. A treasure trove of great artwork is yours for the taking as well. 

A book of revelations.

Filled with poignant insights and a powerful message into the nature of success, Flexible Fred sets a fantastic example for the child in all of us: as we trust in the divine flow of life and remain open to change, we discover the magic that makes anything possible. This compelling teaching tool achieves a unique balance of contemporary art and spiritual magnetism, encouraging readers to unravel the bliss that lies dormant within themselves. ​Flexible Fred is a breath of fresh air for parents, educators, counselors and yoga practitioners who wish to foster the awakening of inner fulfillment and empower the adults of tomorrow with a fun, joy-filled approach to life. 
"Reveals one of the true keys to finding success and happiness.
What greater gift to share with our children! Lee's light touch
and colorful illustrations awaken this spirit in his readers."
