About the Creator and Performer

After a dozen or so years in the Dayton, Ohio indie-rock scene, mostly self-taught musical and visual artist Morgan Taylor moved to NYC in 1999 in pursuit of a life in the arts. While primarily focusing on songwriting and performing, Taylor honed his skills as a professional sound engineer. By 2004 he brought his love of drawing into the blend to self-produce the first Gustafer Yellowgold picture books, with cartoon images depicting the lyrics of some of his quirkier indie-folk pop songs. The books soon became animated, read-along music videos. The strong reaction from fans and press inspired Taylor to hit the stage with an early version of his multimedia concert in spring of 2005; within three years, he was full-time into the world of Gustafer. Over 2,000 live performances, eight CD/DVD albums, and two Grammy nominations later, Taylor is just hitting his creative stride with the Gustafer Yellowgold series.

A great addition!!!

Happy to see the adventures of Guatafer continue. I think there were more songs this time? I will say the "danger" parts were a little bit frightening, so if you have a really sensitive kiddo- perhaps make sure they don't listen alone. But, for us, the whole family listened in the car and all gave it 5 stars!

Fantastic Family Fun

I've loved every installment of the Gustafer Yellowgold stories and this one does not disappoint. Such an inventive, funny, clever, and most of all KIND story with amazing musical soundtrack to boot. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

Future Classic Series

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I downloaded Part One of this book a couple years ago. It seemed like it was maybe for young kids and I was initially put off by the amount of music throughout. Well, the form has grown on me and it's become an absolute classic in our household (and my kids are tweens and teens now!) We've rooted for the hero through this at times goofy and emotional journey and the songs themselves have become an ever-spinning soundtrack for all of us. Kudos to the creator (who apparently did ALL the voices and production including the MUSIC!) Wow. We're sad that this is the end of the so-called trilogy, but the way it wraps up (don't worry I won't spoil it here) was really satisfying and gives us hope for further Gustafer adventures. In the meantime we'll enjoy these three audiobooks AND the huge catalog of his other music albums and videos online. The whole Gustafer thing is a little left of center. Just how my family likes it!!
