Synopsis

Cozy Classics Moby Dick by Jack Wang, Holman Wang

The Cozy Classics series stages handcrafted felt puppets in scenes from classic literature and illustrates the plots of canonical texts using twelve total words per book, one word per scene, in a way that accurately and humorously summarises each book's plot. It's Great Books for toddlers and their parents--a little bit serious, a little bit ironic, and entirely funny and clever. This title expertly adapts 'the greatest book of the sea ever written,' that epic tale of man vs. whale: Moby-Dick.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
