I felt this book wasn't all about Moby Dick it was more about trying to find out where he was at and the sailors hunting for him. I kind of wanted more seeing of the white whale than just a bunch of sailors sailing around trying to find him.
Now I can understand that maybe they wanted to make it more entertaining for the younger kids so they can enjoy the book.
Captain Ahab is on a mission to find the white whale that took his leg but will he succeed? This story is told by one of the sailors who was aboard the boat with Captain Ahab and we learn what went on to find this whale. I think the children ages 8 on up will enjoy this book as it is not long, the chapters are pretty short and there is really no violence. Apart from the whales being cut and used for their oil.
