Come with us aboard the Pequod.
We search for Moby Dick,
the Great White Whale
Along with Captain Ahab,
you'll meet danger face to face,
hunting the fiercest creature
the seas have ever known
Are you brave enough--
and bold enough--
for the adventure of your life?
The award-winning author and illustrator team of Eric A. Kimmel and Andrew Glass introduce a new generation of readers to a magnificent and memorable retelling of Herman Melville's masterpiece, Moby Dick.
