    This version of Moby Dick presents Herman Melville's complete story line. I came across this book while researching for my own work Mighty Moby, and really enjoyed McCaughren's adaptation of this classic. She was able to capture the majesty of the story, and the poetic elegance of Melville's writing while making it her own original work. She also did this without talking down to a younger audience or calling attention to her writing unecessarily. The illustrations are fabulous.

    I haven't read the original--I hear it's boring and slow in the vast middle--so I think we just got all the action in this Oxford Illustrated version! My children enjoyed listening to me read it to them.

    Que história linda! Que obsessão trágica!Uma lição para aprendermos que a vingança não traz paz de espírito. Perdoar/esquecer e seguir em frente é o melhor remédio.

    I learned more history of the sea and sparked memories of a childhood spent near the ocean.

    I'm recommending this for the illustrations. Victor Ambrus at his best!
