I’d like to give a shout out to the talented Lisa Caprelli, author of the wonderful picture book, Unicorn Jazz. Ms. Caprelli did a phenomenal job telling a beautiful story about a kind and friendly unicorn named Jazz, who’s juuuust a bit shy. You see, Unicorn Jazz wants to be a singer, so her shyness is making things difficult for her. It’s not helping that she doesn’t seem to be fitting in with the variety of other animals at her new home in the El Paso Zoo. Fortunately, as tends to happen to people (or Unicorns!) who put good vibes out into the world, good vibes come her way when she meets a raspy-voiced crow named Woof, who turns her life around.
The illustrations, done by Davey Villalobos, are equally well done. With a deliberate color-pencil style akin to what you’d see a talented ten or eleven year-old illustrate, I was thoroughly impressed. Each page was full of color and excitement and brought with it a splendid, whimsical feeling to match the adorable story. I also found it quite neat how the illustrator placed physical traits from both parents in Jazz. She has her father’s white fur and strong hooves, and her mother’s stylish pink mane and gold horn. This book is an easy recommendation, and one I’ve now read to my youngest daughter multiple times. Enjoy!
