Ophi wants to be a real star: a space star. The problem is, he is a sea star and not a blazing star -- which may just be the right thing to be after all! Join Ophi in his poetic quest to travel to outer space and cry for him when his dream is crushed. But is it really that bad? Sea stars have hidden talents that rock stars don't! Written in verse, with colourful illustrations. More
Ophi wants to be a real star: a space star. The problem is, he is an itty-bitty brittle sea star and not a blazing shooting star. Even though echinoderms were known as asteroids long before those pushy shooting stars from space. Join Ophi in this tumultuous quest from its stormy beginnings, through the deep oceans, to an explosive conclusion.
Written in Byronic verse and illustrated with ironic art -- because parents also read picture books. The cover is a tip of the starry tube foot to Ernst Haeckl's lithographs in Kunstformen der Natur.
Sometimes one needs some consolation when those rock star dreams get crushed for real. Suitable for advanced young readers or smart young listeners with great mentors.
