Overview

Moby-Dick (Classic Starts Series) by Herman Melville, Eric Freeberg

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.

In reading this book with my son (age 9), I've found the writing to be clear and description. Appropriate for the younger age group to get them familiary with the story.

Barnes and Noble should offer book report/literature unit options for purchasers of their books.
