Moby-Dick by Herman Melville

Book Description

Call me Ishmael. These three famous words begin one of the most epic novels ever written, a tale of one obsessed captain, his doomed crew and an elusive white whale named Moby-Dick. The massive original, however, can be very hard for young readers to navigate. This beautifully abridged and adventure-filled version will thrill children and whet their appetite for the complete work - when they are ready to tackle it.
