Mighty Moby by Barbara DaCosta, illus. by Ed Young

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...
