“The Problem with Unicorns” is the newest book by award-winning illustrator Gerald (Storm) Talifero. With over 40 fine art hand-drawn illustrations accompanied by rhyming verse, “The Problem With Unicorns” is a unique and beautiful Holiday or anytime gift that is perfect for a beloved child of any age!
In “The Problem with Unicorns” Talifero’s exquisitely detailed images depict an era of history in which the beautiful and mysterious Moors of Africa brought their wisdom and culture to European society.
Drawing from tales of adventure and intrigue passed on in his family mythology, Talifero with a little help from his children has created a lilting verse to accompany the softly haunting drawings that have been over 30 years in the making.
A student of the old masters, Talifero in his wistful and whimsical style draws the viewer in to a magical time in history that has been vastly overlooked and under-represented. Most of the African American imagery available to children today is focused around the urban experience. Talifero feels that our children need new and varied visual aesthetic contexts that draw from our rich past to invoke our greatest future potentials.
“The story is showcased with ethereal drawing of graphite
More than 40 in total – each an absolute delight.
A great story for a Dad to give a child
Grey swirls of pencil and poetic verse…go wild”.
