    1. Thank you! I’ve written a whole load of these shape poems, they are in Apes to Zebras. Sea stars are amazing – they have skin on the outside, and are hollow, and have skin all over their insides, too! So they are always aware of what the sea is doing… every little movement. They can also grow back any limb, and if you cut them into pieces, as long as there is a middle left on each part, each part will grow into a new sea star!
