Stardines – book review

Stardines Swim High Across the Sky and Other Poems
by Jack Prelutsky
Picture Book
* * * * Stars (Great!)

Jack Prelutsky’s poetic field guide to some neologistic creatures – carefully documented in the collages created by artist, Carin Berger – offers much to delight.

From the titular “Stardines” which light the night skies and grant wishes, to the ChOrMOranTs who spend all their time engaged in pointless (but very important to them!) tasks (CHORES), and the “Fountain Lions” (“FOUNTAIN LIONS, lithe and lean, Add gaiety to any scene. The only lions no one dreads, They all have fountains on their heads.”), this collection has something for everyone. Sure to make you smile at least once.
