Stardines Swim High Across The Sky and other Poems

stardinesWritten by Jack Prelutsky, Illustrated by Carin Berger


What a menagerie of animals! Jack Prelutsky shines in Stardines Swim High Across The Sky and other Poems. Inside this inventive poetry book are two dozen species the likes we’ve never seen. From Bluffaloes to Fountain Lions to Plandas to Bardvarks, Mr. Prelutsky writes poetry describing these wonderful imaginary animals with rhyme, wit, and humor. This is a great book to share with young children for the fun that poetry can create. You might want to have a dictionary on hand to help define some of the words. The shadow box created illustrations are fascinating and add to the fun. The reader can spend time figuring out what each animal is made of.
