Stardines Swim High Across the Sky is a charming anthology of short poems describing various imaginary creatures that are punny combinations of real animals with inanimate objects and quirky personality traits. Presented as discoveries from the author’s travels into “far-flung places,” this book introduces us to such delights as the jollyfish, “radiant, ebullient blobs of mirth,” the fountain lion, “the only lions no one dreads,” and the titular stardines, that “illuminate the darkest nights,” along with thirteen other creatures in short verse form.
