Staff Reviews


Words taken from the influential novel set us deep in this tale of passion and revenge, only to find the story is actually set in a bathtub as a young child enacts the drama of Moby Dick. It’s bedtime, and a parent pulls the plug, wraps the child in towels, tucks them in bed and, upon request, sings a ballad that begins:

Wide are the waters of the deep blue sea

Great is the whale that got away free...

Grades K–2.

Description


A Moby Dick-inspired picture book adventure unlike any you've ever seen--with a surprise ending--from Caldecott Medal-winning artist Ed Young.
Deep in the dark ocean, Mighty Moby lurks. Up above the ocean waves, a one-legged captain pursues the whale he clashed with long ago.
Mighty Moby and the captain are soon locked in another battle...but things aren't always what they seem.
Caldecott Medalist Ed Young brings us a dynamically interactive story with a surprise twist that will have you rocking along to the waves of the ocean.
