Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome two new Candlewick Illustrated Classics!

These collectible editions bring treasured stories to life with lavish full-color interior illustrations and elegant French flaps.

Jan Needle abridges Herman Melvilles epic to focus on the intensely dramatic story of Captain Ahabs ill-fated quest for the white whale, while Patrick Bensons powerful illustrations evoke the lost world of whaling

in enormous detail. A compelling invitation to readers who may one day explore the full text of Moby-Dick.

Synopsis:

An abridgement of the nineteenth-century novel in which a young seaman joins the crew of the whaling ship Pequod whose fanatical Captain Ahab is in determined pursuit of the white whale Moby Dick.

About the Author

Herman Melville (1819-1891) worked as a bank clerk, farmhand, and teacher before going to sea, starting as a cabin boy and ultimately joining the U.S. Navy. He is best known for Moby-Dick, one of the greatest works of American literature.

Patrick Benson has illustrated dozens of children's books, including OWL BABIES by Martin Waddell, SQUEAK'S GOOD IDEA by Max Eilenberg, THE SEA-THING CHILD by Russell Hoban, and THE MINPINS by Roald Dahl. The recipient of a Mother Goose Award in 1984, Patrick Benson lives in Hawick, England.
