$16.96 dollar - Herman Melville's Moby Dick, illustrated children's book




Moby Dick is the story of a great white 'bull' sperm whale that fought back at whalers who tried to harpoon him. The novel was published in 1851. It took Herman Melville a year to write and will take almost as long to read for some - especially children who are learning to read and coming to terms with the need to read!


Here then is a good example of a book that junior readers will find useful in making it easy to understand the story that our hero Mr Melville, compiled from years of experience and reference gathering, such as to scribe in such a short time. They did not have ball-pens or digital processing in his day.



There's no greater maritime adventure than the incredible story about the mysterious, white whale Moby Dick. Join us as we board the spooky whale ship The Pequod, along with tattooed native whale hunters and the one-legged man everyone fears, Captain Ahab. This beautifully illustrated learning guide will pull you in, and not let go, until the tide spits you back up on land.


More than picture books, our educational learning guides offer an interactive story time for adult literature fans and their children, or as we like to call them — future lit fans.

Herman Melville was the author of Moby-Dick, a story about what we'd now consider an illegal activity, the commercial hunting of whales for oil and meat. Whaling is still carried out by Japan, Iceland and Canada, among other nations, though most nations voluntarily abstain in the interests of conserving these magnificent animals - as per International Whaling Commission guidelines. Ironically, those killing whales for their meat, may be ingesting carcinogens as a result of the plastic that they are all swimming in.
