Classic Starts®: Moby-Dick
By Herman Melville (Author), Kathleen Olmstead (Abridged by), Eric Freeberg (Illustrator), Arthur Pober (Afterword)
Call me Ishmael. These three famous words begin one of America’s most epic novels, a tale of one obsessed captain, his doomed crew, and an elusive white whale named Moby-Dick. The massive original, however, can be very hard for young readers to navigate. This beautifully abridged and adventure-filled version will thrill children and whet their appetite for the complete work—when they are ready to tackle it.
