The Lovereading4Kids comment

The classic story of the most famous whale in literature is brought to a new audience in this sensitively abridged version. Patrick Benson’s atmospheric illustrations capture the huge drama of the story and, above all, the glory of Moby Dick, the great white whale himself.
