Mr. Flux

Kyo Maclear
Matte Stephens

Martin and his neighbors eschew change until eccentric Mr. Flux moves in and shows them that change can be big or little or even fit inside a box, and not at all scary. A tongue-in-cheek tale loosely inspired by the 1960s art movement known as Fluxus.

Awards & Reviews

“... angular, quirky and slightly abstract illustrations convey both the sense of play and curious lenses for experience that the Fluxus movement celebrated.”
— Kirkus Reviews, March 2013
“A wonderfully offbeat storybook ...”
— Canadian Family, May 2013
“The book uses Fluxus, a media-blending artistic movement of the 1960s, as an inspiration and tonal springboard. This will sail over most of the young audience, of course, but anchoring the story in an element of art history gives it an added philosophical dimension, nevertheless.”
