Kids Winner: Gustafer Yellowgold

After a childhood visit to the planetarium, I chose an official NASA photo of Mars and kept it on my bedroom wall for years. But I never dreamed of being an astronaut. I dreamed about life on other planets. If only my elementary school self had known Gustafer Yellowgold! Even more than the adventures of the sunlings who inhabit the sun, this original recording is full of heart, friendship, and life lessons—paired with songs that will keep cool kids and their grownups singing along. Morgan Taylor—multi-talented creator, artist, musician, and reader—shares Gustafer’s story with an infectious joy that brightens up even the gloomiest day. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself humming Feel Your Shine and wondering just how things are going for a nine-year-old sunling. —Heather, Audible Editor
